That was the assessment of Razorback head football coach Bobby Petrino of Willy Robinson, who missed Saturday's 56-20 win over Troy after being hospitalized on Friday.
Robinson, who had to be taken from the coach's offices by ambulance, was released Saturday night and back in the office on a limited basis Sunday and then a more full day on Monday.
"Willy came in yesterday for a little while," Petrino said. "I tried to get him home as quick as I could. But he stayed in and watched the video and then he's been here all day today and I think he's feeling pretty good. We'll try to make sure we get him home tonight earlier than normal."
"I would anticipate he would," Petrino said. "He's ornery enough to. That's for sure. It's hard to get him out of the building."
Arkansas defensive standout Jerico Nelson, who had a game-high 12 tackles on Saturday, said he got a chance to see Robinson on Sunday and he seemed back to being normal.
"Yesterday, I went in and watched film on Mississippi State and Coach Robinson was in watching film. We talked a little bit about him and about Mississippi State. He's doing good. He is back to himself, laughing and he is really trying to get the players together for this game."
That's something that linebacker coach Reggie Johnson – who took over the defensive signal calling against Troy – did in an unusual way on Saturday according to Nelson.
"Before the game, we talked and he got everybody hyped," Nelson said. "A question he had was ‘are y'all nervous?' He said, 'well I'm nervous' and then he smiled and all of us just got ready for the game. He motivated us by saying he was nervous and then we just went out and just very call he said was right."
Petrino said he was pleased with Johnson's effort and that of the entire staff.
"Reggie did a real nice job," Petrino said. "I thought the entire defensive staff and playes accepted the challenge and really prepared well after the fact when Willy was out. Our attitude was great. I think they did a nice job. Reggie did a good job calling the game."
Petrino said it was not the first time it has happened to a member of his staff.
"No, it's not really a first," Petrino said. " We've had a couple situations on staffs that I've been on. One happened in the preseason. Kind of the same deal - an infection, dehydration, continue to drink coffee, do all the things, not eat properly, all the things that you're not supposed to that causes your body to break down a little bit."
"And then Mike Cassidy, who was our defensive coordinator at Louisville missed one game one year when we went up and played Syracuse. Kevin Wolthausen and Reggie called the game that day."
Petrino said it is tough for coaches to find balance during the season and tough to find time to work out.
"I think the biggest thing is to make sure we do a good job of eating properly, not drinking so much coffee," Petrino said. "When i say that, I'm talking to myself. i'm not very good at it. It's almost like that commercial that's out there, something about when you drive and you smoke, or when you smoke you drive. I can't remember the exact commercial.
"But as a football coach a lot of times when you sit down and pick up the remote control and start breaking down the video, a cup of coffee just goes right with it," Petrino added. "We have to be a little careful about that and we've tried to do a good job this year of getting our coaches home a little earlier on Sunday nights. I've done that to try to make us fresher for Monday. "Today is a hard day," Petrino continued. "Today is the day we do most all the game planning. So we've kind of mixed our schedule up a little more this year than the previous year. But it is certainly a concern. It hits all of us at home when something like that happens."
