"They are going to load the box, run it and then use their play-action passing game," Robinson said after what he thought was another good day for the Razorbacks on the practice field.
Robinson said Wednesday that defensive tackle Byran Jones continues to improve after sustaining an ankle sprain against Vanderbilt.
"He's been able to practice and he's in the rotation this week," Robinson said. "He's getting his treatment and improving each day as far as what he can do."
Robinson confirmed that Darius Winston is working at first team at field cornerback ahead of Isaac Madison.
"We base (first team status) on the way you play and practice," Robinson said. "We'll continue to look at performance. He's practicing well."
The Hogs will face a fully loaded option game in Mississippi State. Quarterback Chris Relf is a strong runner, but the Bulldogs have quickness and speed around him in the backfield. Robinson said it's a little like the option scheme of Auburn.
"It's like Auburn, but they probably use more phases of the option -- the quarterback, the dive back and then the (option) pitch," Robinson said. "That's more than most teams that just run the read option with the quarterback and the dive. We haven't seen a lot of option every week -- probably every week except Georgia -- but this is the most any team runs all three phases."
The Hogs will have to be disciplined in their approach to stop the option. They had problems against the State option at times last season.
"We had prepared for their passer and they went to Relf in the second half and it took us a little bit to get it stopped," defensive end Jake Bequette said. "You have to make sure you don't get up the field too much. Against most offenses, the way to stop them is to get penetration. That's not really what you have to do against a scheme like this.
"What you have to do is really concentrate on your gap fits and don't lose that shape. You can't get gapped out. We just have to work harder this week to stay gap sound.
"If you do a good job on first and second down, then maybe you can tee off on the passer on third down. But you better get the option stopped first. The option is a little bit of a different animal."
Bequette said Relf is a different type of quarterback, too.
"He's a downhill runner, not like we normally see," Bequette said. "He is going to be aggressive with the way he runs through the hole. He's going to come at you."
That's the way the Mississippi State offensive line plays, too. Some teams are in a pass set as far as O-line stances. Bequette said that's not the Bulldogs way under head coach Dan Mullen.
"You see some offenses like Florida and Mississippi State that you might believe are finesse because they run some reverses and mis-direction, but that's not really their mindset," he said. "It's power. It's downhill. It's old school.
"So as a defensive lineman, you have to change your mindset. You have to lower your pads. You have to match the physical intensity of their offensive line."
