Arkansas Razorbacks head coach Sam Pittman is always good for a quality quote or two, and the fourth-year head coach didn’t disappoint Wednesday in SEC Press Days.
After beating No. 23 Cincinnati in the opening game of the college football season 2022Pittman was asked what his «drink of choice» was to celebrate the victory.
«I’m not promoting it, but I like some old cold beer,» Pittman said. «I think I’m going to have one, not promote it now.»

On Wednesday, a reporter asked Pittman if his drink of choice would ever include a Hamm’s beer, and Pittman didn’t miss a beat.
«I like an old Hamm beer, but you burp a lot afterward,» Pittman told the reporter. «Sounds like you’ve got a good job, man. Get a little better.»
Hamm’s Beer was first brewed in 1865, according to the company’s website.

Enos served as the offensive coordinator for the Maryland Terrapins during the last two seasons.
«I think it’s going to be the best season I’ve ever had,» Pittman said Wednesday of Jefferson. «If we run him as much as we have in the past, I don’t know. Maybe we throw the ball a little more than when he carries it. We have to keep him healthy.»

«I think he’ll be very active, but he’ll probably throw the ball a little more than he has in the past,» Pittman added.
