Video: Bobby Petrino on the First Day of Practice

Below is a clip of the press conference Bobby Petrino held Thursday after the start of fall camp. Some of the more interesting quotes:

* "There's no question that the defense is way ahead of the offense."

* "I'm encouraged by our defense."

* "Offensively, we've got a long way to go."

" "I was very impressed with our running backs."

* "We dropped a lot of balls today, which we're not used to doing." (Well, except for the Sugar Bowl. Rim shot, please!)

Some other notable moments: Petrino said that Greg Childs didn't look good and, when asked about the Hogs' No. 14 ranking in the AP preseason poll, he replied, "We've got a long way to go." Also, the bizarre presence of ice cream truck music prompts Petrino to crack a rare joke.
