Arkansas embracing their identity under Bielema (PHOTO)

The transition from the Bobby Petrino and John L. Smith era to Bret Bielema wasn't exactly smooth, as the Hogs lost their first 17 SEC games under the former Wisconsin head coach, but the team appeared to find their formula for success late last season.

Running behind the nation's largest offensive line, the physicality of the Razorbacks eventually wore down their opponents, as Arkansas won three of their final four games and outscored those teams by a combined score of 88-28. 

Arkansas Razorback offensive line coach Sam Pittman recently took an opportunity to point out whom the school chose to feature on this year's media guide: 

Something tells me you can expect more of the same from Arkansas this season as four starters return this season - left tackle Dan Dan Skipper (6-10, 326-pounds), left guard Sebastian Tretola (6-5, 350-pounds), center Mitch Smothers (6-3, 315-pounds) and Denver Kirkland (6-5, 337-pounds). 

The big uglies helped the team compile over 2,800 rushing yards and 31 rushing touchdowns in 2014. Don't be surprised to see the Razorbacks top both numbers in their third season under Bielema and Pittman.
