Arkansas, you’re trying too hard.
Sometimes, it’s best to simplify things. And the Razorbacks made life way too difficult during a fourth-and-1 scenario in the third quarter of their game against Ole Miss on Saturday.
Check out the call below, which happened during a sequence at Ole Miss’ 30-yard line. Arkansas quarterback Cole Kelley appears to “dribble” the ball for some weird reason, then Ole Miss defenders tee off on him shortly after.

Not smart. Many on Twitter seemed to agree that this decision was completely awful. Check out a sampling of the takes below.
Seriously what is this, Arkansas?

Arkansas, it's 4th-and-1 vs. Ole Miss' D. Why the hell are you trying to get cute? Dan Enos has lost his touch, big time.

The ol’ 2007 Brian Hoyer fake fumble. Arkansas OC Dan Enos was on that MSU staff. It worked every time. https://t.co/vGqaBhB4AM

Arkansas just ran the worst play I’ve seen since the 2-Man Colts fake punt, and I’m not exaggerating.
