Arkansas Razorbacks Fall Camp Update: August 7th

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Chris Ash and a few players spoke to the media today. Here's some of the more interesting tweets from the media session along with UA's recap of Ash's comments.

Tuesday marked the Razorbacks first day in pads. It was just shoulder pads, but still. They will be in full pads by the end of the week.

You could spin that to be a good or a bad thing.

Here's a recap of Ash's comments from UA:

FAYETTEVILLE - The University of Arkansas football team continued its first week of preseason camp Wednesday afternoon on the outdoor practice fields. Defensive coordinator Chris Ash met with the media after practice and spoke about the first day in shoulder pads.

"It was a new day," Coach Ash said. "First day in shoulder pads, but we really didn't have much more contact than we did with just helmets. The kids were flying around and working hard and getting better."

With the Razorbacks defense being under new direction this season, Coach Ash talked about the process and what he is looking for at practice.

"These guys will work the process," Coach Ash said. "They will come to work every single day, we will coach them in the meetings and they are going to get better through that time. I will be very excited and happy about the product that we will put on the field for game one."

Coach Ash also commented on the work ethic that he is looking for on and off the field.

"I tell the guys every single day is like NFL draft day," Coach Ash said. "They are getting evaluated in everything they do. When they get to a meeting room do they get their notes out first, are they the first to practice, how are they doing in the individuals, how are they doing in walk-through, so we are evaluating every single day."
