Hogs Begin Wrapping Up in Preparation for Spri

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Wednesday’s weather not only gave the Hogs a great atmosphere for their practice, but continued to set the stage for Saturday’s spring game. Houston Nutt and his coaches have been continually preparing the squad for its game on Saturday and he was once again pleased with the day’s efforts.

“We had a good fundamental day today, had a good practice and good enthusiasm,” Nutt said. “The attitude has just been excellent the past few days. That’s how they learn and that’s how they get better. We’re getting ready for tomorrow; we’ll go for 45 minutes of practice and then scrimmage tomorrow. Tomorrow is going to be where we’re on the same team and you have first units against first units and we’ll really get some good looks. That will be the last scrimmage before Saturday’s game.

“The game is going to be a watered down, short version. It’s going to be six-minute quarters and a lot of fun. We already have the teams divided and the main thing is nobody getting hurt and finishing strong. It’s going to be played like a ball game for the first time in a long time – live kickoffs, kickoff return. Punt return will not be live, but everything else will be.”

The Hogs will take to the fields on Thursday and Friday in preparation for Saturday’s game. The spring game is slated to kickoff at about noon on Saturday. Fans will be able to sit in the east and south end zone stands. Fans will be able to enter the stadium through gates one, 12, 13, 15 and 16. Gates will open at 11 a.m.

There is no admission charge.
