Elevator Gate: Arkansas coaches get stuck in press box elevator at halftime
According to the Thomas Murphy of the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, the Arkansas coaches located in the press box got stuck in the elevator during halftime on the way down to the locker room.
They never made it to the locker room for halftime to talk with the players.
“We ran into a little glitch,” Bielema said. “Our coaches never made it down from the half. They were stuck in elevators. There was kind of a little audible there we had to deal with, but the great thing was the kids had big eyes and big ears.
“It is what it is,” he said. “We had to roll with the flow. Obviously I have coaches up in the booth who look forward to coming down here and meeting as a staff and get on the same page. We were able to communicate by phone.
“I’m not trying to make a big deal out of it, they just weren’t able to get down there. I don’t have the full story on it, I just know they were actually stuck.”
Auburn pulled away from Arkansas in the second half, holding the Hogs to just 51 total yards and zero points.
Apparently, the elevator system at Jordan-Hare Stadium isn’t “Auburn Fast.”
