Hogs coach Bielema first LR Touchdown Club speaker
LITTLE ROCK (KATV) —
University of Arkansas' head football coach Bret Bielema entertained a record crowd of close to 800 at the first meeting of the Little Rock Touchdown Club on Tuesday.
Coach Bielema told some great stories and shared his plan for producing a winning program.
Bielema talked about the importance of playing "clean football".
"If I'm an offensive lineman and the ball is snapped and I'm straining like crazy to block Jadeveon Clowney and he's really good, and I tug on that inside number and I get caught one out of 25 snaps, I can live with that. But if I jump offsides before the ball is snapped, if I have 12 guys in the huddle, if I align offsides, or if I take too long to call a play, that's playing stupid. That's not clean. So playing clean has everything to do with your mental approach to the game. We're not going to give away the ball freely and we're going to attack the ball as much as we possibly can on defense," Bielema said.
