Razorbacks Prepare for Indian Defense
BY ANDRES FOCIL
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas practiced outside for 90 minutes in warm weather on Wednesday as the Hogs continued to prepare for their third game on the schedule, Sun Belt opponent Louisiana-Monroe. Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt was satisfied with his team’s workout, but pointed out that a few key players are still trying to heal from injuries suffered in the Texas game.
“We had a good day of preparation for Louisiana,” Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt said. “For the most part it was good, but we still have a few guys that are a little sore, but they bounced around and got some things done. I’m glad we still have a couple more days to get ready. Jared Hicks and Jeremy Harrell are still sore. They’re trying to fight through it and they’re getting better. Probably Titus Peebles (will start if Harrell is unable to), he’s still a little sore, but he’s getting better.”
The Indian defense is an area the Razorbacks have concentrated working on and Nutt is optimistic that his offense will be able to handle all that ULM will throw at them.
“They’ll blitz you, zone pressures, bringing the free safety from depth, four-weak, four-strong,” Nutt said. “They’ll try to give you a lot of looks you’re familiar with, but then when you snap the ball they’re rockin’. They try to give you a moving target and disrupt things. You can bet your last bottom dollar they’ll be bringing linebackers and strong safeties and free safeties.”
The Razorbacks will face the Indians on Saturday night at 6 p.m. at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock, Ark. Coach Nutt is an unbeaten 16-0 in games played in the Capital City.
