QUOTES OF THE DAY

Football coach Robbie Caldwell on Arkansas' offensive line:
Source: The Tennessean
"They've got the second-largest (offensive) line in the SEC. That's why they're able to do some of these things. (QB Ryan Mallett) stands back there sometimes like he's eating a sandwich."

QB Larry Smith on identifying the 'Dores problems on offense:
Source: The City Paper
“I think it is a little bit of everything, as far as me not making the correct reads, offensive linemen getting some blocks, wideouts dropping passes, running the wrong routes – it is just a little bit of everything. Hopefully we can come together as an offense and just hit on all cylinders. That would be huge for us this Saturday.”
