New Arkansas defensive coordinator Chris Ash sounds like a man who was ready for the Razorbacks to put on the pads for the first time yesterday:
“These guys will work the process. They will come to work every single day, we will coach them in the meetings and they are going to get better through that time. I will be very excited and happy about the product that we will put on the field for Game One…
I tell the guys every single day is like NFL draft day. They are getting evaluated in everything they do. When they get to a meeting room do they get their notes out first? Are they the first to practice? How are they doing in the individuals? How are they doing in walk-through? So we are evaluating every single day.”
Ash moved to Arkansas from Wisconsin along with head coach Bret Bielema. The Hogs he inherited on defense ranked 12th in the SEC last season in total defense and scoring defense.
