Arkansas Razorbacks Fall Camp Update: August 23 J Webster

Bielema spoke to the media following the team's mock game Friday evening.

From UA:

FAYETTEVILLE - The University of Arkansas football team wrapped up its final day of preseason camp on Friday, first hosting its fifth annual Arkansas Razorback Football Kickoff Luncheon and then following later in the day with practice.

A sellout crowd of nearly 1,100 greeted Head Coach Bret Bielema, Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long and the Razorback football team and staff at noon Friday in the NWA Convention Center in Springdale. ESPN analyst and Arkansas graduate Jimmy Dykes emceed the event, as fans in attendance had the opportunity to meet and interact with Arkansas football personnel and student-athletes.

Coach Bielema spoke at the event and shared his impressions of the Razorbacks, as the team closes in on kickoff against Louisiana at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium on Aug. 31.

"Why I know that we'll have success is because of the guys sitting at your tables," Coach Bielema said of his players. "The guys that are sitting at your tables have carried themselves in a championship manner. They give me a great indication that once we get to playing football everything is going to be alright."

@BretBielema also shared his excitement over the growth and work that the team has displayed thus far in preseason camp.

"I guarantee you this, there isn't one person that is going to go out and practice this afternoon that has gotten worse since we've been here," Coach Bielema said. "Everybody continues to take steps forward. Some guys have taken huge steps forward."

The University of Arkansas and the entire Razorback football staff thanked all those that attended the event and their continued support of both the university and athletic program.

Coach Bielema also spoke with the media Friday afternoon following practice and summarized his parting thoughts about the Razorbacks after enduring preseason camp.

"I never had to get on these kids about their intensity (or) their attitude," Coach Bielema said. "Now, taking it to game series, there have been times in the past as a head coach where I'm like, 'Are they into it? Are they engaged?' There is no question about this group."
