Kendal Briles, the first-year offensive coordinator of Arkansas State, is known for his quick pass plan. Many people expect the pigs to put the bulldog aside and pass the ball quickly.
Franks said: “It’s great to see what these guys can do. We have a lot of guys who can play.”
“I think our entire game plan has nothing to do with fast passing the ball and pre-conceived reading. We have many different combinations. “
Smart said the Bulldogs must prepare for Arkansas to defend quickly.
“What did Coach Brills do in his history?” He has acted in many plays,” Smart said. “He ran so fast. He won’t sit there, let us dig the nail into the ground to defend. H
“He will let us play left-handed, and our job is to try not to let this happen.”
No one knows this better than Franks.
