Hogs Move Indoors For Practice

FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas moved its practice indoors Wednesday afternoon because of cold and damp weather outside.

"Nothing like a good indoor arena," said Arkansas coach Houston Nutt. "Nothing like a Walker Pavilion. It was good to come inside. We got a lot of work done today."

The No. 13-ranked Razorbacks worked for almost two hours in preparation for their game against Louisina-Monroe on Saturday in War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock.

Nutt said playing in Little Rock should give his team a little more incentive.

"They are really excited about it," Nutt said. "A lot of our older guys are talking to our younger guys about it. There's a lot of excitement."

Nutt said his team could use some more trickery like it did last weekend against Ole Miss. For example, lining up tailback Darren McFadden in the shotgun and moving quarterback Mitch Mustain out as a wide receiver.

"We could do that, we've been working on that," Nutt said. "There's also some things we can do to add to things we did before. Yeah, we've been working on that this week."

Nutt said Reggie Fish and Peyton Hillis would continue returning punts this week.

"We've got Reggie Fish and Peyton Hillis, both those guys work on it," Nutt said. "And then we've got Damian Williams working on it a little bit.

"The first guy will be Reggie Fish."
