Despite not playing in the loss to Alabama, Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson sat down with the media following Saturday’s game.

Wilson was less than pleased with the effort and outcome of the 52-0 defeat to the No. 1 ranked team in the country.

“It sucks I can’t be out there to do anything about it,” Wilson said. “Do I feel, at times, we gave up out there? Yeah. Absolutely. As a leader it sucks to see people not do their jobs and things go wrong.”

“There have been a lot of things go that way. As a leader at this point you’ve got to move forward. There have been a lot of people jump off the bandwagon, and it is my responsibility as a leader to keep everybody in this organization, and this team, in that locker room together.”

“And I’m going to make sure of it going forward. We’ve got a big game against Rutgers next week. I’m going to do everything in my power to be a part of it and be the starting quarterback to run out there on the field and get a win.”

“You have to start with one before you can get the rest of them. I give you my word I’m going to do the best of my ability and best of my power to make that happen. That’s all I got.”

Arkansas will host Rutgers in Fayetteville on Saturday at 6 p.m.
