Good to hear. Nothing serious going on.

If I was on my phone I would put "heart" and "hog" emojis right here.

ABC. Always. Be. Crootin. Bielema goes to the rules committee hearings and he's recruiting new coaches. Much better result than that 10-second rule debacle we got last year.

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

Ok, so, Segrest will handle the punters and placekickers while Singleton coordinates the overall special teams.

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

Good luck to him. I'll always like Derby because of the way he took all that abuse in 2013 and made himself into an NFL-caliber tight end in 2014. Quite the story.

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

That's great except that Arkansas lost three really great players and a few other quality starters. Will need everybody coming back to step up to adequately replace them. Trust in Robb.

I do not want to be Tevin Beanum this spring.

/exhale

So this is one of those things like when Alex Collins was suspended for a week last winter. Everything's ok I think.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>&quot;Another player&quot; will be suspended for missing class, too.

Tretola's going to be a beast this year.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>BB: offseason will always be an 8 week program. Tretola has lost 46lbs since has been here. Henry is 260.

That's all good just as long as he keeps his "incredible ass"

And then Coach Singleton came in and talked all about how he was excited to be here.
