Bret Bielema left little doubt about the foreseeable future when he said returning starter Brandon Allen had pulled away from the rest of the Arkansas quarterbacks following a scrimmage last week.
The number of Arkansas quarterbacks dropped from five to three this week, but the leader at the position hasn't changed - Brandon Allen is No. 1 for now.
Despite a healthy position battle, Brandon Allen is still Arkansas' top quarterback this spring.
In the 85th minute of Georgetown's NCAA Sweet 16 match against Syracuse last Sunday, the ball bounced through a scrum in the penalty box and fell at the feet of a freshman.
The Arizona Diamondbacks acquired right-handed reliever Brad Ziegler from the Oakland Athletics on Sunday for a pair of young players, boosting their bullpen for a playoff push.
"I think last year at this time a lot of people weren't on the same page at all," Allen said. "... Right now, (the offense) is pretty much honed. I think the older guys have done a good job of teaching it to the younger guys. We're definitely a lot better schemed right now."
The latest performance was what caused Bielema to say Allen has "separated himself" from his younger brother and any other challengers, a vote of confidence Allen said showed Bielema "has the trust in me to lead this offense and do good things for us."
