Arkansas baseball has received tons of fan support as they compete in the College World Series for the 11th time in history. The leader of the program for seven of those trips has been head coach Dave Van Horn.

Not only have Razorback fans trekked to Omaha to cheer on the Razorbacks, but so have leaders of other sports. Athletic Director Hunter Yurachek, head football coach sam pittman, and head men’s basketball coach Eric Musselman were all spotted in the stands of Arkansas’ game with Ole Miss on Monday night.

Prior to the game against the Rebels, head coach Eric Musselman joined SEC Radio on Sirius XM to discuss a handful of topics, including the success of all athletic programs at the University of Arkansas. Since Razorbacks Baseball is competing in the College World Series, baseball and head coach Dave Van Horn were brought up as well.

During the interview, Musselman described the success that Van Horn has had at Arkansas, even saying that he is the greatest of all time.

“There’s just a lot of really, really cool things that’s happened with our athletic department. There is pressure with the baseball team. There’s pressure with all of the sports. I mean, you look at what the men’s and women’s track team does. But, certainly, Dave Van Horn is the G.O.A.T. To see what he’s done. To have one good year, anybody can do that. But when you sustain success year after year after year like Coach Van Horn has done, he truly is a legend in the coaching profession.” 

The Razorbacks look to extend their stay at the College World Series on Tuesday, but will need to take care of Auburn to do so. First pitch between the Razorbacks and Tigers is set for 6 p.m. CDT.
