Getting Defensive

by muslimsdonteatme on September 26, 2009

After a summer filled with hope and talk of change, the tough questions are again being asked and critics have taken to the Internet to express their frustration.

As much as Arkansas’ defense struggled a week ago on national TV, defensive coordinator Willy Robinson insisted it’s too early to panic in the wake of a 52-41 loss to No. 21 Georgia. And his players sound tired of rehashing what went wrong a week ago.

“Last week was last week. I really don’t remember much. I’m a defensive back; I have to have short-term memory,” Arkansas cornerback Ramon Broadway said. “I really don’t remember a lot of stuff about what happened last week.

“All I remember was a loss and it hurt real bad, and I’m looking for revenge.”

In a perfect world, Arkansas’ defense would follow up last Saturday’s loss to Georgia in which the Bulldogs scored all six of their touchdowns from 21 yards or more by facing a weak offense it could easily push around.

The Razorbacks (1-1, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) aren’t so lucky, though.

They’ll instead look to redeem themselves and show they’re capable of making some big defensive stops at 2:30 p.m. today when they face third-ranked Alabama (3-0), which has an offense that’s even more explosive than Georgia’s. [read more]
