FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Head coach Bobby Petrino, center Jonathan Luigs and linebacker Elston Forte along with other University of Arkansas athletic officials have departed from campus for the 2008 Southeastern Conference Football Media Days.

This afternoon, RazorVision will provide another free video package covering the final events of this year’s SEC Media Day.

The Arkansas contingent fielded questions from the more than 800 credentialed media from the print, video, internet and radio realms.

The Razorbacks begin their circuit at 10:40 a.m. with Petrino spending 40 minutes talking to the print and internet media. During that time Luigs and Forte make their rounds with a number of television crews. The print media will interviewed the players in a group setting for 20 minutes while each of the 10 radio and television rooms were given 10 minutes with both players and coaches. Aside from local television stations at the event, SEC-TV, CSS, CBS College and ESPN were all in attendance.

With SEC media days wrapping up, Petrino and his players can now focus on the first day of pre-season practice scheduled for Monday, Aug. 4. For more information regarding Razorback football or University of Arkansas athletics please visit ArkansasRazorbacks.com.
