We'll get there, Pop. We'll get there.

We should have known everything would go poorly when that happened. I mean, dang.

YOU HEAR THAT BRADY HOKE

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>Bielema on the 2 QB-center exchange issues: &quot;We had not had an exchange issue in three weeks. ...

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>Coach B: Current Cowboys and former Wisconsin center Travis Frederick stopped by hotel on Saturday.

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

That's Bielema's way of saying quit complaing about Frank Ragnow and Mitch Smothers rotating in and out. It's cool. They'll fix the problem.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>Bielema: The reception recruiting was unbelievable. I landed in Alabama and guy took my luggage and said &quot;roll tide&quot; but I love how you play</p>&mdash; Bo Mattingly (@SportsTalkwBo) <a href="https://twitter.com/SportsTalkwBo/status/516999783756492801">September 30, 2014</a></blockquote>

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>Coach B: The areas that get us in trouble depth wise are offensive and defensive line</p>&mdash; Hawgs Illustrated (@HImagazine) <a href="https://twitter.com/HImagazine/status/517001034208518144">September 30, 2014</a></blockquote>

Arkansas has really talented starters, and that's why they've played so well at times this season. Beyond the starters it gets a little sketch. That's the difference in the top SEC teams and middle of the pack teams like Arkansas right now. But I have no doubt Bielema and crew will be able to further beef up the lines with another recruiting class or two. At those positions they've recruited really well.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>Bielema:  We are going to take a look at our kickers and kind of open it up this week.</p>&mdash; Bo Mattingly (@SportsTalkwBo) <a href="https://twitter.com/SportsTalkwBo/status/516997268038111232">September 30, 2014</a></blockquote>

I was able to see one of the kicking competitions in preseason camp and I believed that day John Henson was better. I was never surprised he won the job after that. But he and Cole Hedlund were very close by all accounts, and perhaps Henson is the type that's much better in practice than in games. Regardless, it'll certainly be interesting to see what happens going forward.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>Bielema said Williams and Collins will be in green non-contact jerseys all week: &quot;The only thing they’re going to hit is the bed.&quot;</p>&mdash; Robbie Neiswanger (@NWARobbie) <a href="https://twitter.com/NWARobbie/status/517003258468896769">September 30, 2014</a></blockquote>

Well-deserved.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>Bielema: CBS invited me to be a studio analyst during their telecast on Saturday.  It&#39;s a great opportunity for exposure for our program.</p>&mdash; Bo Mattingly (@SportsTalkwBo) <a href="https://twitter.com/SportsTalkwBo/status/517001312051810305">September 30, 2014</a></blockquote>

Awesome. Bielema with a live mic makes halftime viewing essential.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>Coach B: Dan Skipper is a very mature and responsible young man. He will need to turn the page. We have some ideas to help him</p>&mdash; Hawgs Illustrated (@HImagazine) <a href="https://twitter.com/HImagazine/status/516998937845067776">September 30, 2014</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

I think I'd rather just not know what those ideas are. Bielema is a creative guy, after all.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>Coach B: I sent in seven plays to the SEC office on Sunday and received positive feedback on them.</p>&mdash; Hawgs Illustrated (@HImagazine) <a href="https://twitter.com/HImagazine/status/517000187508555776">September 30, 2014</a></blockquote>

OMG BIELEMA COMPLAINING ABOUT REFS AGAIN OMG EVERYBODY PANIC. Just kidding. All coaches do this.

How much y'all want to bet that Malcome Kennedy false start-that-wasn't was included? Probably the first clip.
