The Arkansas basketball team dropped yet another game, bringing the streak to five losses in six games.

The Hogs traveled to College Station to face a underrated Texas A&M team that has a deep and talented team.

Arkansas trailed by as many as 16 points early in the second half and staged a hard-fought come-back, but it ultimately was not enough. The Hogs lost 81-86 to the Aggies, bringing their season record to 10-5 overall (0-3 in conference).

Honeymoon over for Arkansas Basketball coach Eric Musselman?

The Hogs have been playing terrible basketball as of late and can’t seem to carve out an identity.

Just a few weeks ago, Devo Davis sent out text and held a player’s-only meeting after losing to Oklahoma and Hofstra, according to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

The benefit from that meeting was short lived as the Hogs defeated Elon, but have lost to Mississippi State, Vanderbilt and now Texas A&M.

The players, at least in part, are trying to get it together and play winning basketball. It’s time we start to hold Head Coach Eric Musselman for getting his team on the same page.

We’ve tried it the players-only way. It’s a figure-it-out-on-the-fly-approach that treats players like professionals and grown men. The problem is, they aren’t. They are all coming from high school situations (for the most part) in which they were the best player on their team.

Some of these players are still trying to figure out how to share the workload and be ok with not being the team’s go-to guy.

Musselman needs to find a way to get these guys to gel. Maybe a team-building activity to reset and refresh after being in a very bad funk.

If things continue like this, Arkansas fans may begin to step off of the Muss Bus.
