Yes he was there and talked with the Arkansas coaches before the game. But he had to leave early.....he said Bama looked good and liked the way we used all of the running backs.
He said that game didn't change anything....he said we will still take an official to Arkansas, Alabama and Oklahoma State.

I don't see how that game could not change things unless he had already ruled the Hogs out.
"It's kind of hard to comment on the game," said Tenpenny. "I said whoever came out and played the best was going to win the game. Obviously it was Alabama.
"I saw all the backs who touched the ball yesterday. Lacy, Yeldon, Drake and Hart all got carries. I like that. You always have a fresh pair of legs in the game. That's what you need.
"I didn't talk to any of the Arkansas coaches after the game. I had to leave early. I talked to them before the game. They were just happy I was there.
"I talked to coach Groh after the game. He was basically asking me what I thought about all the backs getting carries and what I thought about the offensive line. I was impressed with them. They did good. So did the tight ends and fullback."
Tenpenny has traveled to Arkansas several times since his commitment to Alabama. His interest remains the same. His commitment also remains intact.
"It really doesn't effect me," Tenpenny said of the game. "This is how they are right now. It's a rebuilding year. It doesn't reflect how they will be in the future. They lost their head coach. I think everything going on definitely had an downward effect.
"I am still taking an official visit there. I don't have any visits lined up yet. I know I will visit Alabama, Arkansas and Oklahoma State. Alabama knows where I stand. They know I will take an official visit there. My commitment is firm though. They know that."
Tenpenny had a big performance Friday night with 161 yards rushing and four touchdowns in a 47-10 win against Pine Bluff. All four scores came in the first half. Alabama running backs coach, Burton Burns, attended his game.
Tenpenny does not have any other visits planned at this time.
It didn't change anything because he is still firmly committed to Bama and he still plans on visiting Arkansas and Okie State officially.
