Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema isn’t exactly killing it so far in his move to the SEC. The Razorbacks, who also fell to Rutgers on the road, have yet to win a league game, falling to 0-3 after an absolute beat down at the hands of South Carolina, 52-7. The matchup with the Gamecocks was the third in a row against a ranked opponent – the first two being Texas A&M and Florida. Things aren’t going to get any easier, either – Arkansas has to travel to Alabama to play the No. 1 ranked Crimson Tide this upcoming Saturday. That’s a whole lot to be negative about, huh? Bielema isn’t preaching it though. He is telling his players to keep their heads up. Bret Bielema on what he says to team heading to Alabama after 45-point loss to SC: “I say ‘Don’t be a Debbie Downer.’” — Cecil Hurt (@CecilHurt) October 14, 2013 We’ll see if Bielema’s guys can turn their season around here – though they still have two more ranked opponents (Auburn and LSU) to play after the Alabama game. For those counting, that means that six of their eight SEC games come against ranked teams. Yikes.
