FAYETTEVILLE – The University of Arkansas football team returned to the practice field Tuesday afternoon after an 11-day hiatus for spring break. Offensive coordinator Jim Chaney was available to the media and spoke about the day’s practice.
"We didn’t install very much offense today," Coach Chaney said. "We had some mistakes, some stuff we hadn’t been doing. It kind of comes with it, I think. For the most part their attitude was good and their effort was fine. I was pleased with them today. I don’t remember a lot of turnovers, which is usually what takes place after break. I didn’t see that, so I was pleased."
Coach Chaney also spoke about returning to practice after having a week of spring break.
"I think they recalled a lot," Coach Chaney said. "Coach (Bielema) talks a lot about ‘recall and install.’ Recall what you’ve done and install the new stuff. The challenge will come on Thursday when we install third down. Third down creates a lot more volume for them. We’ll have a lot more new concepts for the young wide outs, Cody (Hollister) and Jared (Cornelius), and the young quarterbacks learning the stuff all over again. It will be a learning curve on third down. Hopefully, we’ll do fine with it and work some of the wrinkles out."
The Red-White Game is scheduled for April 26. The game will be held in Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium and broadcast live on CST. Game time is 1 p.m., and admission is free.
