Mustain Train Leaves for Tulsa
Nothing officially official according to the big websites, but Arkansas news stations are reporting that Mitch Mustain, the QB savior of the Razorbacks, has bolted Hogville for the football superpower of Tulsa. If you've read this blog before, you know my recent opinion of Mr. Mustain and his momma (ie, they can burn in hell next to Bobby Petrino), but its interesting to see the discussions on Razorback messageboards. A good 90% want to crucify Houston Nutt and the way he handled everything.
All I can say is that these people have too high an opinion of themselves. You're a freaking High School coach who only got his job because of his QB (Gus Malzhan), and Mustain is a freaking freshman. You want to know why the offense you wanted to run didn't get run? Because you have the Heisman runner up in Darren McFadden (and Felix Jones is back there too). What coach in their right mind would install an unproven, pass-wacky offense when you find that your hand it off to the RB offense is working perfectly.
A horrible ending to an otherwise remarkable season by the Hogs. Looks like a lot of Nutt and Dick jokes for the next year.
