Eric Musselman celebrates shirtless after Arkansas upsets No. 1 Kansas
Eric Musselman is a national treasure and must be protected in a manner befitting his stature.
After the Arkansas Razorbacks dethroned No. 1 seed and defending national champion Kansas in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Saturday, Musselman did what Musselman always does after huge wins — he ditched the shirt. The Arkansas head coach went over to a crowd of Arkansas fans and partied.

This isn’t the first time Musselman has gone shirtless to celebrate a win. He garnered national acclaim for doing it after big wins when he was the head coach at Nevada. He did it again in February 2022 when Arkansas toppled No. 1 Auburn.
The coach says when he started coaching at Nevada, his team won a CBI Championship and as he went to change his dress shirt to the championship shirt, the group picked him up before the switch could be made, so the topless celebration just became a tradition.
Arkansas has now made it to the Sweet 16 in 3 consecutive seasons. That’s a first for the program since the Nolan Richardson days.
The Razorbacks will await the winner of No. 4 UConn and No. 5 Saint Mary’s.

Great win by my Hogs. Not sure how they did it, but they did it. Vegas is about to be invaded by Bubbas wearing those beautifully tacky plastic Hog hats. I’d love to see the reaction of the casinos as the blackjack tables are overrun by Arkies.
Heck of a game I was pulling for the Hogs to beat KU. That was a great game to watch! Arkansas refused to lose they just kept coming at KU. Mussleman is best coach in SEC and one of top four or five in country. Sure wish UK find some way to lure him to Lexington. Good job Arkansas hoping y’all keep on rolling.
Bert Kreischer would be proud.
