Prior to the scrimmage, Arkansas did its Razorback Drill then some 1-on-1s. Dalton Wagner pretty much dominated Eric Gregory and the two kept fighting, Myron Cunningham and Mataio Soli battled to a stalemate and Noah Gatlin drove Zach Williams way, way, way away from the initial start spot. They went at it for a while.
As far as the scrimmage itself is concerned, it was cold and wet, and the offense - particularly the offensive line - looked all out of sorts and Hicks hardly had time to survey the field. The defensive line, first and second team, got consistent penetration and came up with multiple TFLs and sacks. Gabe Richardson had a tackle for loss and a sack and Zach Williams had a half sack, too. Bumper Pool was everywhere. His energy is off the charts. Trey Knox had a few catches and looked good relative to the rest of the offense. Chase Hayden had a couple of nice runs, but nothing as explosive as the first scrimmage. Arkansas’ second-team offense struggled so much that at one point the coaches had them do up-downs after coming to the sideline.
