Arkansas Razorbacks Fall Camp Practice Report - August 6th

New, 7 comments

In which the Hogs thudded up!

ArkansasRazorbacks.com

The Razorbacks finally got to practice in full pads for the first time today, which according to the UA report, put "concentration at an all time high."  That's very impressive. We're talking historically strong concentration, people.

But I really do like how Robb Smith calls it "thudded up".

UA also reports Brandon Allen was "on point all afternoon. His arm remained steady for the entirety of practice". I guess it's good for a quarterback's arm to remain steady. Hopefully that means accuracy and completions. We'll have to hope.

They also reported Demetrius Wilson "made an impressive snag" while "draped in heavy coverage."  The poetry this fall really is fantastic.

Cody Hollister also remained active at receiver, making "a number of nice catches." I really hope he's productive this year. Sounds good so far.

POSITIVE SECONDARY TALK WHAT IS THIS MAGIC? Let's just keep practices closed forever at this rate!

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Smith on <a href="https://twitter.com/BijhonJ">@BijhonJ</a>: He&#39;s going to help us eat up some A gaps inside.

Safe to say Bijhon's going to be playing early and often. The real question is how often will the TV broadcasters talk about Bielema's SEC Media Days comment about his "incredible ass"? Speaking of Bielema...

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Guys are jacked up today to put on shoulder pads &amp; play football the way we like to play!

That might not sound like much, but considering Zach Hocker is gone, that's pretty good to hear. The Razorbacks need Cole Hedlund to live up to his promise.

I also liked this clip from Robb Smith - the dirty grin he made when talking about the freshman lining up against the older players with pads on for the first time was funny. It meant, "they got knocked down flat".
