Bret Bielema means well.

As the new head coach at Arkansas, he’s trying his best to get off on the right foot with current players, fans and even former players. But even plans with the best intentions sometimes go awry.

This week, Bielema and his staff attempted to reach out to former Arkansas defensive end Jamaal Anderson, but ended up getting in touch with Jamal Anderson, a former NFL running back, who actually played his college football at Moorpark College and then Utah.


It’s an understandable mistake. Both players were drafted and played for the Atlanta Falcons. However, the Jamaal Anderson that Arkansas was looking for actually plays in Cincinnati now.
