Yes it will, thinking the same thing.
Also think its way to early to worry about the AP Poll or any Poll for that matter.

I think the fact that Arkansas is most likely going to lose a lot more games than just the 2 most thought they would, this year, is going to hurt our SOS a lot more than just that loss alone will.
Maybe I'm mistaken, or perhaps they've changed it, but I thought that SOS was actually calculated with a formula that doesn't incorporate any rankings, but rather how many losses you have, along with how many losses the teams you played have, or something like that.
Now obviously, perception wise it doesn't help, along with whatever little categories (ie bad losses, wins over top 25) different media members use at the end of the year, in an attempt to compare the contenders with at the end of the year, but again, if Arkansas were to beat everybody other than us & LSU the rest of the way, even those wouldn't be affected much.
The fact that JLS is in charge of a team that has no defense, no OL, & can't do anything without Tyler Wilson, instead of Petrino, meaning Arky is probably going to be in for a long year this season, is the bigger negative for our schedule's perception.
Those top 4 teams are strong. After that it's a toss up IMO. You could stick 5-16 in a hat at this point.
