FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas coach Bret Bielema isn’t shying away this week from the Razorbacks’ dreadful history against Florida.
Arkansas is 1-9 all-time against the Gators, with all nine of those losses coming during the 25 years the programs have been SEC bedfellows. The Hogs’ only victory against Florida came in the 1982 Bluebonnet Bowl.
“I think our guys are made aware of it, and today with everything (the media has) out there, that social media has out there, I think our guys are much more in tune with those types of things, positively or negatively, than at any other time since I’ve been coaching,” Bielema said.
“So you don’t just ignore it. You don’t just put it in the back of your head and act like it’s not there. You definitely address it.
“To me, that’s a very fun thing to bring up. It’s their chance to do something that’s never been done.”
