Arkansas coach Bret Bielema responds to Kingsbury comments

Monday September 21st, 2015

Arkansas coach Bret Bielema responded Monday to critical comments made by Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury over the weekend.

After a 35–24 win for the Red Raiders over the Razorbacks on Saturday, Kingsbury went after Bielema for comments made during a summer convention for Texas high school football coaches about pass-heavy offenses.

"[Bielema] stood up and said if you don't play with a full back, we'll kick your a--, if you throw it 70 times a game we'll kick your a--," Kingsbury said. "He just got his a-- kicked twice in a row, and probably next week by [Texas] A&M as well."

Bielema, whose Arkansas team also lost in an upset to Toledo in Week 2, responded to Kingsbury during his Monday press conference.

Arkansas faces Texas A&M this Saturday, while Texas Tech will face another high-powered offense in TCU.
