The other seven head coaches in the league had gone through the vast array of ESPN radio, TV and podcast programs on Monday.
One of the most interesting things to come out on the day was Bielema noting that Arkansas would not go through two-a-days in preseason camp. "We've put ourselves in a position to where physically we're ready," Bielema said. "We need to be ready when the games are there.
"We play against each other every day in practice and hopefully are competing against one of the best offenses and defenses every day, and we want that season to be special. We've got to make sure we're fresh when we get there."
Below are some tweets from Bielema and the Razorback football site as the day went along:

While Bielema was at ESPN, Texas coach Charlie Strong - a Batesville native - was at the Big 12 Media Days.
He let the media know that he had posted in the locker room Bielema’s comments about Arkansas’ 31-6 bowl win over Texas being “borderline erotic.”
