FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - New Arkansas coach Bret Bielema (BEE'-leh-mah) is finally ready to show off the results of the work he's put in over his short time with the Razorbacks.
The former Wisconsin coach inherited a team with scars that ran deep from the post-Bobby Petrino fallout, including a 4-8 collapse last season and predictions of a last-place finish in the SEC West this year.
Bielema has provided Arkansas with a much-needed dose of stability. The Razorbacks open the season at home Aug. 31 against Louisiana-Lafayette.
