Pre-game social media buzz for Arkansas-Georgia
I don’t think anyone wants to be Eric Musselman right now.
The stress levels he has reached this season after season-ending injuries, and late-game collapses have turned the Arkansas Razorbacks season into a stressful situation.
The Hogs will be in a “must-win” situation for the rest of the season if they want to be a part of the 2023 NCAA Tournament because right now, they look like a high-seed team in the NIT.
And this is not to discredit the prestige of the NIT, but when you’ve built one of the best programs in the country, it becomes NCAA Tournament or bust.
It’s a few reason to why Eric Musselman may be the most stressed-out coach in the SEC. While nobody may want his current situation, not many coaches could take these situations and still find ways to keep the squad in March Madness conversations.
This should an easy one for the Hogs

Georgia is better than usual. Arkansas is worse than usual. But even in this season, with the game in Fayetteville, the Razorbacks should win.
Someone is excited for UGA

Nick Smith Jr. has shown he has the heart of an Arkansas player. His return to more than 30 minutes of game-action last time out showed it. If his game amps up in the final four of the regular season, watch out.

It’s going to be loud inside BWA tonight, which should help Arkansas’ chances.
No pressure but literally everything rides on Nick smith.

I don’t think we’ve reached the point where everything relies on Nick Smith, but if he can be one of the more productive players on the court, the Hogs become a different team.
