Bielema hopes to teach Arkansas mental toughness

Posted: Updated:

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Bret Bielema wishes he had a way to teach Arkansas how to overcome difficult moments.

Unfortunately for the Razorbacks coach, he has yet to devise a solution to keep the struggling program from doing just that during games.

The latest example of Arkansas' struggles in maintaining momentum came during last week's 52-7 loss to South Carolina, a game in which the Razorbacks led 7-0 early before the Gamecocks scored the final 52 points.

It was the fourth straight loss for Arkansas (3-4, 0-3 Southeastern Conference), matching Bielema's longest losing streak of his career. It's a mark the former Wisconsin coach will likely top on Saturday when the Razorbacks travel to No. 1 Alabama (6-0, 3-0), especially if they are unable to reverse a recent trend of folding after poor plays.
