Arkansas began its Tuesday workout outside on a dark, windy, chilly afternoon, then moved inside as it began it mist. Head coach Houston Nutt liked the foucs.
"We had a good start today on South Carolina," Nutt said. "We came inside after the kicking and it was good to see everyone back out here."
Several Hogs returned to practice on Tuesday in different capacities. Darius Vinnett and Cedric Washington fully participated in practice, while All-American linebacker Sam Olajubutu stretched and went through some light running. Marcus Harrison was also back out on the practice field, but not a full speed.
"It was good to see Darius Vinnett and Cedric Washington back out here," Nutt said. "Sam (Olajubutu) put on his pads, watched and did some running. Hopefully he can get a little bit (of practice) in tomorrow and then all of it on Thursday.
"It is always good to see your captain out (back at practice). He is guy that has made a lot of plays and made a lot of tackles.
"They had good focus. It means a lot to them, especially the seniors. They have been doing the best job we have had in a long time as far as leadership."
It's a long, tough season. The Hogs will need that kind of leadership, especially with some young players in key spots. Quarterback Mitch Mustain was asked if the grind of a long season has been getting to him.
"It is a little bit," Mustain said. "There are days when I just really don't want to do
anything. It's getting to the point where you just don't want to do it. But
it's a lot of fun when we get out there on Saturdays, so we keep going and
get ready for a big game."
Do you guys feel comfortable enough with passing game to win?
"I do," Mustain said. "We just missed the smallest margins last Saturday. We could have had
a lot of big plays, I think, if we keep executing those. Get those we'll be
all right and nobody will be talking about it."
