ground game under repair
Petrino is known as one of the top offensive minds in college football, but one aspect of the Razorbacks’ attack was not up to his standards last season — the running game.
To remedy the problem, Petrino hired offensive line coach Chris Klenakis away from Nevada. Klenakis was one of the originators of the “Pistol” offense, which a year ago helped the Wolf Pack become the first team in NCAA history to have three players rush for more than 1,000 yards in a season.
The Razorbacks will have four running backs to choose from, but the best could be Ronnie Wingo Jr. The 6-foot-3-inch, 218-pound sophomore averaged 6.5 yards per carry last year, including a 62-yard touchdown run against Texas A&M.
