HOOVER, Ala. -- It took a few years for coach Bret Bielema and the Arkansas Razorbacks to gain their footing in the Southeastern Conference Western Division.But after an encouraging third season that ended with an 8-5 record, including 5-3 in the league, Bielemas hard-nosed, blue-collar vision is starting to become a reality in Fayetteville.At Arkansas were not built very sexy, were just kind of a work in progress, Bielema said. We need a lot of time in the bathroom to get ready and come out and look great.Bielemas easygoing demeanor during his fourth SEC media days appearance on Wednesday is a stark contrast to his first few, when his combative remarks often irritated other league coaches. There was no need to be combative on the podium this year: His team is doing a better job of handling that task on the field.But to keep the momentum moving forward, the Razorbacks are going to have to solve some uncertainty on offense.Arkansas lost experienced playmakers in quarterback Brandon Allen, running back Alex Collins and tight end Hunter Henry, as well as three starting offensive linemen. Allen will be replaced by his younger brother -- junior Austin Allen.Bielema said the brothers have some similarities, but also some key differences that the Razorbacks must harness.Hes got a little bit different demeanor, Bielema said of Austin Allen. Hes a very aggressive person by nature. I think well have to calm him down rather than juice him up. He throws a tremendous long ball and is a very, very intelligent player.Bielema has also been impressed with a pair of freshmen running backs -- Devwah Whaley and T.J. Hammonds -- who he believes are going to have a huge impact on this season.Arkansas has much more experience on defense with nine starters returning.Senior Deatrich Wise, a 6-foot-5, 272-pound defensive lineman, led the league with eight sacks during conference play last season. Senior Brooks Ellis, a 6-2, 246-pound linebacker, led the team with 102 tackles, which ranked ninth in the SEC.Hall said hes been impressed that its not just the nine returning starters who are playing well.We just have a lot of people coming in that are very strong and know what theyre doing and theyre going to make an impact for us, Hall said.Arkansas hopes to get off to a better start this season than in 2015. The Razorbacks lost three of their first four games before a 7-2 performance the rest of the year.Were getting really close to where we want to be, Bielema said.---Follow David Brandt on Twitter: www.twitter.com/davidbrandtAP---AP College Football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org .

Ferrari boss Maurizio Arrivabene says he will not take lessons from Helmut Marko after the Red Bull consultant criticised Sebastian Vettels conduct after the Mexican Grand Prix.Marko said Vettels explitive-laden radio rant -- in which he told FIA race director Charlie Whiting to f--- off on two occasions -- was unworthy of a four-time world champion. Vettel has since been cleared of any wrongdoing after writing letters of apology to the FIA and Whiting.Arrivabene believes Marko should focus on his own team rather than on Ferrari and his former protégé.I think everybody has to think about their problems, because accusing others is not correct, Arrivabene said. I answered a question before and this is the right way to do it, but I am not taking a lesson of educationn from Helmut Marko or anybody else.ddddddddddddHe also added that he was sure Vettel would not repeat the tirade again.Vettels anger had been at the FIA not immediately telling Verstappen to move over after he missed the Turn 2 apex while defending third position from Vettel in the closing laps. Though Arrivabene was gesticulating angrily at the end of the race, something he feels shows his passion for Ferrari succeeding.Of course I was angry but it was nothing to do with the other teams. ?I was talking to my people to move on and to talk with Charlie. I was really concentrated on that. You know my character, my passion is like this.
