Quarterbacks — C

Offensive coordinator David Lee said the Razorbacks would be happy with a quarterback who threw for 150 yards and managed the game like a veteran.

Junior Casey Dick has been close to the passing mark, averaging 141.2. But one stat Lee and Arkansas can't be happy about at the halfway point is Dick's completion percentage (51.4).

Arkansas coach Houston Nutt believes Dick has grown as a quarterback under Lee's tutelage, but he has struggled with consistency. His interception deep in Arkansas territory at Alabama was costly. So was his inability to make plays through much of the Auburn game, when the Razorbacks needed Dick to loosen up the Tigers stiff defense.

But Arkansas believes Dick showed plenty of poise — and confidence — when he led the offense to its go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter against Auburn. His 13-yard touchdown pass to receiver Lucas Miller was a well-thrown ball and something the Hogs hope to build on.

"He just needs a little more help," Nutt said. "We all can help him. That's everybody, from coaches to everybody down that line of scrimmage. Everybody."
