Coach Eric Musselman and the Arkansas Razorbacks are getting ready to tip off in their Elite 8 matchup against Baylor.

This is only Musselman’s second year at the helm of the Arkansas program, so this has been quite the year for the Hogs.

During an appearance on SEC Today on SiriusXM on Monday, Arkansas AD Hunter Yurachek explained why he knew Musselman was the right guy to lead the program:

Yurachek calls Musselman a “grinder,” and that is certainly an appropriate word. Musselman has shown endless energy and a willingness to put in the hours it takes to build a winner.

Will this magical season end with a trip to the Final Four? We’ll find out in another hour or so!
