Arkansas concluded its second day of two-a-day practices on Monday evening with a full-pads, two-hour session on the practices fields south of Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
“It is a great day to be a Razorback,” Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt said following Monday’s evening practice. “We had a good day today. The weather has been really good to us the last few days.”
The Hogs spent the evening practice working on different situations that might be encountered in the season opener on Sept. 3 against Missouri State.
“We did a lot of team today,” Nutt said. “We put the guys in a lot of situations like third-and-eight, second-and-long, third-and-long, second-and-medium and just worked on it over and over.
“We also worked on getting in the huddle and out of the huddle offensively. Defensively, our guys never huddle, which I think is a great advantage for them. They have been doing a good job with signals.”
The Razorback receivers stood out on Monday as the offense continues to develop its passing game with new starting quarterback Robert Johnson.
“I though Marcus Monk, Cedric Logan, Cedric Washington and Chris Baker did a good job of catching the ball,” Nutt said.
The Hogs used the morning practice to work on the kicking game and fine tune their fundamentals. The practice last just over an hour and took place in the Willard and Pat Walker Pavilion.
The Razorbacks return to the practice field on Tuesday for a single afternoon practice. Arkansas’ annual Fan Day is set for Aug. 20, from 10 a.m. to noon, with a scrimmage following at 6 p.m. The festivities will be held on the lawn in front of the Tyson Poultry Science Building.
