Monroe nearly doubled the possession time against Arkansas and ran a staggering 103 plays on offense. Quarterback Kolton Browning triggered the attack totaling 481 yards and four touchdowns.
"He made play after play after play after play after play after play," Smith said. "Then he makes one at the end to win it. We couldn't tackle him, couldn't stop him."
"We had guys there and we couldn't get him down and he dumped it to some guys," defensive coordinator Paul Haynes described. "In those key situations, we've got to make some plays."
The Warhawks kept the Razorback defense on skates all night. 550 yards of offense is the most Arkansas' allowed since the triple overtime thriller against LSU in 2007.
"I guess it was not a very good plan or very good execution," Smith explained. "That's our job. That's the coaches to get it done."
"Just poor tackling, poor execution," senior linebacker Tenarius Wright added. "They made some conversions on third down which prolonged us to be on the field over and over and over."
Two games into the season, it's already time to sound the alarm on D. Against what should be inferior opponents, the Hogs are surrendering 29 points per outing.
"We've got to go back to work. It's a long season. We've got to go to work," Haynes said. "We've got to make sure we put our hard hats on and look ourselves (in the mirror), everybody, coaches included, see what we can do and go to work."
