Last Sunday, the Arkansas Razorbacks (2-1, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) were treated to two viewings of their 49-14 loss against the Alabama Crimson Tide.
“It wasn’t a lot of fun,” said Arkansas head coach Bobby Petrino. “We watched the video together as an offense, then the video together as a defense and we made sure we pointed everything out.”
Offensively, turnovers terminated any chance the Hogs ever had of getting back into the game once they trailed. Defensively, bad angles and poor tackling at the line of scrimmage allowed the Tide to rack up 328 rushing yards.
Petrino noted that several UA players had breakout games. However, having all 11 players on the field nailing their assignments at the same time was a rarity.
