FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas coach Bret Bielema addressed the media Thursday morning in a news conference. Here are some highlights of his remarks.
- Bielema said that junior college transfer defensive end Michael Taylor is “en route” to Fayetteville, but that whether he can contribute or not this year will be determined.
- The Razorbacks are playing a “mock game” on Friday, Bielema said. Arkansas coaches will essentially run the players through a typical gameday, from meetings, pre-game routines, etc., followed by a 60-play script that players will follow.
- Bielema on only having one first-team All-SEC selection: “I’d love to see where we’re at at the end of the year.”
- Bielema said that transferring junior cornerback Cornelius Floyd has not landed anywhere yet, but that Bielema is still helping Floyd look for a new home.
- The team voted on captains last night, but Bielema declined to announce them during the presser because he hasn’t announced them to the team yet. He said to expect an announcement this afternoon after practice.
- Senior wide receiver Drew Morgan spoke extensively after Wednesday’s practice about the importance of bringing “juice” every day. Bielema said he’s calling it “Druice.”
- Bielema: “Dre Greenlaw is as gifted a Will linebacker as I’ve had.”
