That answer came late Monday night when the NCAA announced its eight Super Regional sites and announced the Hogs would pack their bags for Tallahassee and Florida State.
"We're not too worried about where we're going or who we're playing," Arkansas senior infielder Ben Tschepikow said. "Our main focus is our team. If we play well and hit like we did (in Oklahoma) then we're going to be hard to stop."
The Razorbacks and Seminoles each closed out regional wins Sunday in convincing fashion with the Hogs knocking off Oklahoma 11-0 on the road and Florida State beating Ohio State 37-6 in Tallahassee.
The Seminoles – a No. 1 seed in the regionals – were expected to be the host for the Super Regional. However, Arkansas had an outside chance to host the best of three series - which sends the winner to the College World Series - following convincing back-to-back wins over nationally-seeded Oklahoma.
But in the end Van Horn noted that only one lower-seeded team has ever hosted a Super Regional, when a 3-seed (Oregon State) hosted a 2-seed (Michigan) in 2007. In that instance, he said, the lower seeded team only hosted the Super Regional because the higher seed was unable to host because of construction.
"It has happened but I have no control over it," Van Horn said. "It's like I just told the players, 'Wherever they tell us to go, we'll do it.' I'm just glad we're in the final 16 and still have a chance."
Van Horn expects the Hogs (37-22) to display the same level-headiness that led to three big wins in the regional. Arkansas beat Washington State Friday and Oklahoma Saturday and Sunday by a combined 29 runs.
While winning the Norman Regional was nice, Van Horn said, it was just another step for a team with one goal in mind.
"Watching them after the game, there was no dog pile," Van Horn said. "They know we haven't made where we're trying to get. I think they were starting to focus on the ride home with guys talking about this weekend coming up. We had a couple of newspapers on the bus that had articles about last night's game and I didn't see anybody reading them; like they didn't really care and that's a good sign.
"We're just excited and ready to go."
Players echoed their coach's sentiments.
"Winning the regional was awesome," Tscepikow said. "It was the first time in the five years that I've been here we've won it. But it's not what we came into the season playing for and that's going to Omaha.
"We're just two wins away and we've got to keep working hard."
Van Horn said the team will stay on the same routine this week as it did last week. The Hogs will also keep the same lineup, he said, including the same pitching order even after Drew Smyly's one-hitter Sunday.
"I don't think there is any reason to change it right now," Van Horn said. "If we got into a situation when we got down there and feel good about left-handers against their left hitters, we might bring him out of the pen or something, or if you have to get someone in the game to stay in the game - we'll do what we have to do there."
Van Horn was impressed with Smyly's performance in the shutout win over the Sooners, in which he took a no-hitter into the ninth inning.
"We thought we would have to pitch two or three guys at the least," he said. "It just worked out for us."
Van Horn was also complimentary of first baseman Andy Wilkins' weekend, in which the sophomore went 12-for-16 from the plate with six runs scored, five doubles, two home runs and 11 RBIs.
"I think he just realized that we needed him to step up," Van Horn said. "He came to grips with the struggles he'd had and was frustrated. We just talked to him the last couple of weeks and instead of guys pointing fingers, they just said, 'Hey, we've got to get it done,' and they got it done."
Van Horn said he was happy the team is playing its best ball at the end of the season.
"It's just the game we play," he said. "If this would have happened a month ago we might have won the league. It's funny how it's so contagious."
Tschepikow said the Hogs have had it in them all season.
"We went through a skid for about a month where we were losing one-run games," Tschepikow said. "We just couldn't get over that hump. Then we went to the SEC Tournament and played the best teams and still a couple of wins. It just energized our team.
"We've known all along that we're a good team and played the best competition in the country. Nothing we saw in Norman was a shock to us and even going to Florida State now isn't a big deal."
On playing the Seminoles (44-16) in the Super Regional, Van Horn called it "coincidence," as Arkansas met Florida State in the Hogs' last trip to a Super Regional in 2004. The Razorbacks eliminated the Seminoles in two games at home that year.
"Somehow we just keep running into Florida State," Van Horn said. "We haven't seen them and don't know a whole lot about them. We've got some teams in our league that have played them, so we'll get as many scouting reports as we can."
Despite going on the road, Van Horn said playing in front of a hostile crowd shouldn't be a factor.
"We've played in front of some really big crowds," Van Horn said. "Even our home crowds have been out there when it's good and bad. On the road we've seen some pretty good crowds. Georgia sold out all three games when we were out there. I don't think it will affect us because we've played just about everybody and seen just about everything. It's just about us going out there and executing and the best team will win."
Van Horn said senior short stop Scott Lyons was still struggling from soreness in his right shoulder and would continue to be the designated hitter against the Seminoles.
The coach was also pleased with the production from freshman Bo Bigham at second base, which allowed Tschepikow to play at short stop the last two weeks.
