FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Welcome to SEC Country’s daily Arkansas Razorbacks podcast. On this episode, we talked about the Arkansas special teams entering 2017.
SEC Country launched the Borderline Erotic Podcast on Aug. 29, 2016. It is named after the colorful way Arkansas coach Bret Bielema described how he felt after beating Texas in the 2014 Texas Bowl.
Here is a quick rundown on some of the topics we discuss on this, the 150th episode of the Borderline Erotic Podcast.
First, some breaking news
First things first: We are thrilled to welcome John Nabors to SEC Country’s Arkansas coverage team. John is a Northwest Arkansas native and radio host who has been a guest on the Borderline Erotic Podcast many times. Now, he will become the podcast’s host. Don’t worry — Jason, Trent and Eric will still be on the podcast most days, but John’s experience and expertise will take the Borderline Erotic Podcast to another level.
Special teams remain a concern
We spent virtually the entire rest of this episode discussing the Arkansas special teams. The Razorbacks have struggled in that department under coach Bret Bielema and the recent news about punter Blake Johnson certainly doesn’t help.
Then, add in the fact that Cole Hedlund is back as the likely placekicker. And, Arkansas won’t be able to add a 10th assistant coach — virtually guaranteed to be a special teams coordinator — until next January.
Right now, Bielema said he is handling special teams duties and that new defensive line coach John Scott Jr. will also help during the season. It will certainly be something interesting to watch for Arkansas in 2017.
