While the majority of SEC teams will open with non-conference games in 2014, Arkansas and Auburn, East division league foes, are slated to meet on August 30 to kick off the season. Razorbacks coach Bret Bielema is still looking to notch his first league win after his program finished 0-8 in his first year at the helm. He apparently wants to make sure the Tigers don’t have any kind of special advantage.
Bielema, after asking reporters and fans to not videotape any portion of his team’s scrimmage, joked that if anyone should see someone wearing an Auburn shirt doing so, they should “knock the s*** out of them.” Bielema’s words were taken out of context a bit by a few sources, but here’s a good write-up of the situation.
It’s clear that Bielema was just trying to make a joke, but you can see Auburn fans getting a bit riled up about it. It may not be bulletin board material, but it should add a little fuel to the fire with just two weeks until kickoff.
