Arkansas' Bielema not settling after last season's success

FAYETTEVILLE, AR (AP) - Arkansas begins its third spring under coach Bret Bielema on Monday, doing so with a sense of anticipation not seen since a 21-5 stretch in 2010-11 that saw the Razorbacks reach the Sugar Bowl and defeat Kansas State in the Cotton Bowl.
Arkansas finished last season 7-6, winning three of its final four games - including an overwhelming 31-7 win over Texas in the Texas Bowl.
The Razorbacks held the Longhorns to 59 yards of total offense in the win, but they enter this spring needing to find a replacement for All-SEC linebacker Martrell Spaight, who led the league with 128 tackles last season.
They'll also be led for the first time by new offensive coordinator Dan Enos, the former Central Michigan coach who replaces Jim Chaney.
