Early Tuesday Grid Notes

It was first day in full pads and so it took 30 seconds to get the first explosion in the Hog drill. Through 15 matchups, among the winners were Colton Jackson, Austin Capps, McTelvin Agim, Hjalte Froholdt and Austin Cantrell.

The practice moved inside because of lightning in the area. Not dressing out were the kickers and specialists. They flipped back outside after the first 20 minutes with the storm moving south of town.

One of the observers was former Arkansas linebacker Cliff Powell, invited to practice by Barry Lunney. Powell said there was more hitting in the first 20 minutes of practice than in an entire two hour workout in his day. Of course, Powell was an All-American for the Hogs in the late 1960s.

Who is starting on the Oline today?


I think they will continue to move things around this week. I bet they have Wallace’s attention. That’s a good thing.

I was in the defensive end when I was there. I was watching the tackling circuit with Cliff. Didn’t see the offensive line as they opened offensive work.

So I take it that Austin Cantrell still has some wheels carrying the extra weight?

Hog drill is a hitting drill. I don’t know that it’s anything other than locking up and straining there. I didn’t observe running there. He can still move, but the young tight end with best wheels is CJ O’Grady. And O’Grady did well in Hog drill, too.

After watching his career at Roland and seeing that he’s up over 270 now just curious if he could maintain his position at TE.

Thanks Clay!

Will be surprised if Raulerson isn’t in the starting five.

Me too, Richard … I can see Jake at Center and Frank at RG with the rest of the OL as Jimmy stated … spreads out experience across the line.


I am sure the O-line is going to get heavy mention today after the morning practice when Bret Bielema gives an update to the media.
