Snow Keeps Hogs Indoors; Continue to Prep for
BY ANDRES FOCIL
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Due to a winter snowstorm the Hogs enjoyed staying indoors and continued to prepare for the fourth-ranked Georgia Bulldogs as they practiced at the Walker Indoor Pavilion in pads and shorts.
“Thank goodness for this indoor pavilion,” Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt said. “It’s been an awesome place for us. We’re really thankful to have this type of facility. It really helps to be able to come in here and get some work done. Especially since we’re going to be playing inside. We had good work today, but we’re still trying to pick up some things.”
Unfortunately, Arkansas has been without the help of fullback Mark Pierce and free safety Ken Hamlin in practice throughout the week.
“We miss Mark Pierce and Kenny Hamlin,” Nutt said. “Hopefully we’ll have them by Saturday, but we haven’t had them all week. We’re always concerned when they don’t practice throughout the week, but the good thing is you play 10-straight weeks, going on 11, so it’s not like they haven’t seen a few snaps.
Nutt also addressed cornerback Ahmad Carroll’s status for seeing playing time in Saturday’s game.
“He’s healthy and seems to be doing real well,” Nutt said.
The Razorbacks will take on Georgia Saturday December 7, in Atlanta, Ga., for the Southeastern Conference Championship. Kickoff is scheduled for 5 p.m. CT with the game being televised nationally on CBS.
