ESPN analyst Jesse Palmer has plenty of love for Arkansas
Jesse Palmer doesn’t need to see anymore from Arkansas to deem the team as legit.
“I think Arkansas is for real,” the former Florida quarterback and current ESPN commentator said. “When I look at Arkansas, I see a complete team that doesn’t show a lot of weaknesses right now.”
Palmer’s comments come after Arkansas was able to beat Texas A&M 20-10 on Saturday and move to 4-0. The win against the Aggies snapped a nine-game losing streak for Arkansas. The Razorbacks also had a convincing win over Texas earlier this season.
“They want to run the ball,” Palmer said of the Razorbacks. “They’re physical up front. They have four running backs. They have a 250-pound quarterback that can run and throw.”
Arkansas is third in the SEC with 261 yards per game. Palmer said he thinks Arkansas will win 10 games this season but won’t beat Alabama or Georgia.
“I think it’s what Arkansas is going to be,” he said.
Palmer also complimented Arkansas’ defense which utilizes 3 linemen, 2 linebackers and 6 defensive backs.
“I love the scheme defensively,” Palmer said of the 3-2-6.
The comments come just after the 10-minute mark in the video:
