FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – With four Southeastern Conference games remaining on its 2007 schedule, the Arkansas football team took to the practice fields Tuesday in preparation for South Carolina, the first of a tough four-game stretch. Head coach Houston Nutt thought the practice was a good way to start the week.
“Our guys came out with a good attitude today,” Nutt said. “They realize we’re playing a good football team (Saturday).”
With a 5-3 record, the Razorbacks head into their next four games with the goal of continually getting better and finishing the season strong. For Nutt, this is the time of year where he wants the Hogs to focus on the details and execution that will carry them through the end of the season.
“There is a lot of football left in the season, so it’s time to roll up our sleeves and go to work,” Nutt said. “The competition is going to a new level”
Nutt also talked about the job defensive coordinator Reggie Herring and the rest of defensive coaching staff have done to prepare the defense every week. The Razorback head coach said they have done an excellent job of moving this team along and progressing defensively. Arkansas has allowed 27 points in its last three games.
After leaving Saturday’s game, quarterback Casey Dick practiced Tuesday and took his normal amount of snaps. Nutt said the junior signal caller looked good and would be under center for the Hogs.
Arkansas will return to the practice fields Wednesday to continue its work for Saturday’s game with South Carolina. The game will be televised on ESPN2 with kickoff scheduled for 7 p.m. CT. Log on to www.hogwired.com for more news about Razorback football.
