That's because it will feature a long scrimmage for the Razorbacks, one that is likely to go up to a couple hundred of snaps.
"We know what is coming," Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson said after Friday's workout. "It's going to be 200 plays and it's going to be physical."
Indeed the first major scrimmage for the Razorbacks is set to get underway at 10 a.m. with the Arkansas staff looking first and foremost for solid execution.
"Coach Petrino has been trying to cut back a little bit and we have had…a couple of days with non-addition to polish up, get better technique and execute better what we are doing," Smith said.
"Really as a staff we are looking for execution," Smith added. "There are going to be some mental mistakes, but we want to limit the mistakes from what we have been in the past…There are going to be a number of plays so you have got to go out and play hard and pick up your mental attitude."
"It is seeing how they execute even when they are tired," Smith said. "We want to see a little bit of that so are looking forward to it."
Wilson tossed a pair of interceptions on Friday and Jacoby Walker also had a pick with Tremain Thomas, Darius Winston and Terrell Williams all hauling those in during team work.
"It was a rough day for me," Wilson said. "I've had five good ones. Today wasn't one of those. They did some different things in the secondary. They disguised it. They lined up in different places and I didn't see it."
Tailback Knile Davis broke off several big runs, something that didn't escape the notice of wideout Jarius Wright, who hopes to help him do that a lot this season.
"We have a great running back so the wide receivers are really working on our downfield block," Wright said. "We want to help him get some big runs."
Smith, the special teams coordinator, noted that the Razorbacks were working three different kickoff return units to try and find the best at all 11 spots.
They are also doing something different this spring in that there are two players deep instead of just one.
On the first unit, that has been Dennis Johnson – the school's career record holder – and incoming freshman Marquel Wade, who could also push Joe Adams as the punt returner.
"With Wade coming in and D.J. back, we kind of want to see both of those guys back there," Smith said. "Coach Petrino suggested we get two back. It doesn't really change a lot of front we do up front. We are going to do some different things on kickoffs these year."
Smith also said he is pushing field goal kicker Zack Hocker, who had a great freshman season and could also take over kickoff duties this fall.
"We're assuming that he might be (the kickoff guy), but anytime you assume you have a chance to be wrong," Smith said. "He can work on a lot of things – number one his get off time.
"He also doesn't stretch enough, he is not loose enough," Smith added. "I am on him about that all the time. Stretch in the morning when you get out of bed. Stretch at night before you go to bed. He was over there on the sideline limping today so don't give him too much credit."
Hocker was initially brought in as a punter, but took over the field goal and PAT duties before the first game last season.
"The other thing we really want to work on with Hocker is his punting technique as well," Smith said. "He could be that back-up guy or maybe some day even be in the lead of that guy (first-team punter Dylan Breeding)."
Snapping the ball to those guys is Will Coleman.
"He finished the season for us last year and really did a pretty doggone good job for us in the bowl game and LSU," Smith said. "He has been okay, but we also expect to have more competition at that spot next year. We expect to have some kids here who are going to give him a run for his money."
