Arkansas takes on Auburn Saturday and to start off the week Razorbacks' coach Bret Bielema is already going after Auburn and their coach Gus Malzahn. On Monday Bielema informed the Southeastern Conference office about a discrepancy between television footage of Auburn’s win at Florida Atlantic and the video sent by the Tigers. From Arkansas News...
“There are just some clips that haven't - shall we say - the TV copy doesn't match the film copy,” Bielema said. “And it's something we have kind of been aware of now for the last week and half in getting our preparation. So we can use other film and stuff like that to make sure we are getting the full picture.”
Bielema said the discrepancy came with what he described as a “swinging gate” formation, which Auburn uses on extra points. It was not part of the video sent by the Tigers as part of the SEC’s rules concerning video exchange between teams.
“On the TV copy, they have a swinging gate at the beginning of the play,” Bielema said. “Which obviously happened. It was on the TV copy. And when we got the video copy from them (Monday), that exact same play doesn't show any of the gate. It just shows them lined up in a field goal, PAT. So if I hadn't watched the TV copy, or if our guys hadn't had the time to go back and review, we would have never known that to happen.
“I'm sure it's a glitch. I know Gus stands for everything that's right and (has) great faith in doing things right. So I'm sure it's just a glitch they'll get to the bottom of.”
