Arkansas AD Takes Cleat To Face At Practice; Cracks Petrino-Motorcycle Joke

FAYETTEVILLE, AR/USA - JUNE 7, 2018: Arkansas Razorback sports logo on the campus of the University of Arkansas.


Arkansas athletic director Hunter Yurachek was attending Razorbacks football practice this weekend when the action got a little bit too close for comfort.

Yurachek was observing practice for the sidelined when running back Josh Oglesby made a dash for the sideline. Oglesby was hit as he went out of bounds and went tumbling in Yurachek’s direction. Unfortunately for Yurachek, he ended up taking a cleat to the face.

After the practice, Yurachek took to social media to share a video of the incident (hat tip to r/CFB) while also cracking a Bobby Petrino-motorcycle joke — everyone should know what happened there by now.

What a legendary tweet.

Hopefully the Razorbacks and everyone around the program will be able to keep the spirits high and jokes flying throughout the team’s 2021 campaign.

Arkansas officially kicks off the season on Saturday, September 4 against the Rice Owls. The game at Razorback stadium is scheduled to begin at 2:00 p.m. ET on ESPN+.
