Arkansas coach Bret Bielema didn’t mince words when talking about starting running back Alex Collins after the Razorbacks’ 54-46, four-overtime win against Auburn on Saturday. Bielema said Collins needs to take care of the little things — like punctuality.
“Alex Collins pissed me off,” Bielema said in his post-game media conference. “He was late for breakfast this morning. He’s got so much potential. The only guy who limits him is him.”
Collins fumbled twice in the game and didn’t see action in overtime despite running for a team-high 105 yards and one touchdown on 25 carries. Collins appeared to hobble into the locker room at halftime after carrying the ball on the final play of the half, then appeared to hobble off the field again late in the fourth quarter. There were no injury reports on Collins.
Kody Walker, who returned this week after missing four games with a hand injury, served as the featured back in all four overtimes and scored a pair of touchdowns.
