Razorback News for December 28th

Houston Nutt playfully impersonated legendary coach Frank Broyles' dialect Thursday as he recalled a recent conversation with Arkansas' athletic director about Oklahoma's defense. Broyles watched a reel of game film on the Sooners during the Christmas break.

"He said it's the best he's seen in 45 years," said Nutt, accentuating the length of time. "I said, 'Coach, I don't need those kinds of comments.'" Nutt, who will coach the Razorbacks against the 10th-ranked Sooners in the Cotton Bowl Tuesday, declares it at least the best he has seen in 15 or 20 years.
