FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Houston Nutt and the Arkansas Razorbacks experimented with some things during Tuesday’s practice in preparation for the University of Louisiana-Lafayette’s Ragin’ Cajuns. Nutt was pleased with the day’s practice and is looking forward to see how the game plan turns out.
“Today the guys came out here and bounced around,” Nutt said. “We have a lot of sore guys. We’re beat up a little bit.
“We were experimenting today. If we would’ve come out today with some shells on and really moved around with great effort, focus, intensity and concentration, we would see how this thing went. They really gave it to us today and had a really good effort.”
The coaching staff is still working on the premise of taking one game at a time.
“We’ve tried to do that [look past a non-conference game],” Nutt said. “We just can’t do that. It’s one game at a time. That’s been a motor for the last four or five weeks and they know what can happen. Anybody on any given day can beat anyone.”
Injury-wise the Hogs are still battling the same injuries.
“Shawn [Andrews] is still pretty bad,” Nutt revealed. “It’s the same guys with the same injuries. It’s that time of year.”
Nutt also revealed that freshman offensive lineman Zac Tubbs will start in place of the injured Shawn Andrews on Saturday.
The Hogs kickoff against the University of Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium, Saturday at 1:00.
