“Just about gone.”
That’s how CBS Sports resident bracketologist Jerry Palm describe Arkansas’ margin for error the rest of the basketball season in an interview Tuesday on Sports Talk.
On Arkansas’ loss to Missouri, Palm said, “If Missouri isn’t the worst Power 5 team, Oregon State is. When you don’t have any big wins on your ledger, it’s hard to make up for.”
The Razorbacks’ best win is currently over RPI No. 37 Tennessee. Palm said that win won’t mean much.
“There isn’t any circumstance where Tennessee is going to be a marquee win,” Palm said.
So what does Arkansas have to do to make the NCAA Tournament, according to Palm?
“I think Arkansas is going to have to beat either South Carolina or Florida on the road, and win the rest of their games,” he said.
