Bielema, Chaney stressing balanced offensive approach in first season at Arkansas

Arkansas coach Bret Bielema and offensive coordinator Jim Chaney seem to be an odd fit at first glance.

Bielema's reputation is linked to the power running game, while Chaney is known for his passing fancy. The two, however, are both preaching the same key to offensive success this season with the Razorbacks — balance.

Of all the new philosophies around Arkansas this fall in Bielema's first year, perhaps the most intriguing is his fit with Chaney.

The two insist they are both on the same page offensively, and they are excited to open the season against Louisiana-Lafayette on Aug. 31.
