From 2008-12, the Razorbacks threw for 15,710 yards (3,927.5 per season) and had two of the best quarterbacks in the game. Now they are focusing on the backfield and have major questions under center.
"I think it's going to be a little of a transition, no doubt," Bielema said on SirusXM College Sports Nation. "One thing that excited me a great deal when I got here was to see they have over 20 seniors, who wanted to be great. They've been through some transition and some turmoil, but survived it, championed the moment."
That might be putting it lightly. Arkansas is currently going through a lifestyle change under the first few months of Bielema's tenure.
But Bielema doesn't expect to change everything—at least not right away.
Last season, Arkansas averaged 3.9 yards per carry and struggled to find consistency on the ground against the brutality of what is an SEC defensive front seven. Wisconsin cruised to 5.2 yards per carry in a run-heavy Big Ten.
Whether it carries on to Fayetteville has yet to be determined.
