So he'll be well-schooled in teaching the three points of pressure.

And he's apparently really big on ball security...

At one time Bret Bielema had a list of 23 candidates for the vacant running backs coach position at Arkansas. Some advice from Air Force head coach Troy Calhoun helped narrow the process.

"I'd asked him about a coach that had previously worked for him," Bielema revealed, "and he looked at me and said, 'You need a running backs coach?' I said 'Yeah, I do. Actually I'm losing my guy to the Saints,' and he goes, 'I got the guy for you.'"

"The guy" was Oklahoma State running backs coach Jemal Singleton who played at Air Force under Fisher DeBerry and had previously coached for Calhoun there. One of the things that caught Bielema's eye right away was Singleton's reputation for coaching ball security. In 2014 his OSU backs did not suffer a single turnover.

That's good, but it's not like anyone in the Big 12 outside of TCU plays even a lick of defense.

I don't really think that detracts from that statistic about the RBs not fumbling.  Those guys were still getting tackled, it's not like they were running untouched for 80 yard TDs each time.

We lost 2 fumbles against common opponent Texas Tech, they didn't lose one all season.

If we didn't fumble last year, we would have beaten Bama.

It's actually not the lowest in the conference, KSU and Baylor both had 2 fumbles, although I don't know if that is for RBs or the whole team.

But it is still really good overall, 14th in the country as a team.

It is better to be a human being dissatisfied than a pig satisfied; better to be Socrates dissatisfied than a fool satisfied.

Unless I'm mistaken, that includes all fumbles by the team, not the RBs.

Nice website. Looking at other stats...we were 8th in the country with fewest % passes intercepted.

Very few DC's were shrewd enough to hide a defensive back up in row 11.

Can't ever get a pick 6 thrown doing that though!
