Nutt Pleased with Practice; Peters Leaves Team
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Arkansas Razorbacks completed practice Thursday under sunny skies and comfortable temperatures on the practice fields behind Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Head coach Houston Nutt was pleased with Thursday’s practice, noting better concentration than on Wednesday.

“We had a good practice today,” Nutt said. “We came out with a lot better concentration today and got some things corrected. I liked our intensity much better today as well. Tomorrow we’re going to go under the lights for a little bit in the stadium – about 45 minutes underneath the lights. Saturday will be a rehearsal of a true game. From where we stretch to what may happen in the craziest situation. That’s what we’ll try to do on Saturday.”

Nutt noted that the Hogs were not treating this week as an open week just because everyone else is playing.

“We’re not considering this as open date week. We’ve just had so many practices before our first game, and it doesn’t happen to be until next week. We’re not looking at it like that. We are just trying to use every day we can.”

Nutt also revealed that offensive lineman Jim Peters expressed his desire to leave the team.

“Jim Peters has decided to leave the team,” Nutt said. “We wish him the best as he’s been a really good person for our program. He came in on his own and paid his way through his first year. We’re going to go ahead and pay for his schooling this year.”

The Razorbacks open their season when they host the Boise State Broncos on Sept. 7. Kickoff is slated for 6pm.
