I wonder if the same fans who get so up in arms about Mustain's mom getting involved are the same moviegoers who went "you go girl!" when Sandra Bullock showed Hugh Freeze Cotton a thing or two in The Blind Side.
He won't even have to be a very good shot to hit Prewett.
Yes. And nary a one said aMm when it was Matt Jones' dad.
Mitch had raw talent but it needed refining big time. That was evident during the all star game before he ever walked on campus. He was horrible and his weaknesses were exposed.
But still looked as good as the #1 pick in the draft 2 years later. It's amazing how much better the QBs get after their freshman year.

Despite his arrest, I was surprised to read he was a long-time taker of Vyvanse. These ADHD meds are basically pharmaceutical meth. (Adderall IS meth). You can utilize it to jack up scholastic performance in short bursts, but NOBODY can perform at a consistent high level of athletic performance on that aMm. It just ain't possible. He didn't need to "fight harder" for a starting position, he needed to detox. For me, this is the last piece of the puzzle, and it all makes sense now. Good luck, Mitch.
I don't really think Kristi Malzahn is crazy at all
Yes I did. My statement was more of a comment on Mrs. Malzahn's perceived craziness than Becks. I don't think Beck is that crazy...but she is a little crazy. Her son was screwed over but she did not handle any of it extremely well and while I don't think she is close to the "little league parent" many claim her to be, she could have handled things much better. I don't really think Kristi Malzahn is crazy at all, so Beck being crazier than her doesn't mean a whole lot.
This is exactly where we are at, dead on: To everyone that is hushing the Gruden talk, stop it, there IS a deal in place...
Explain how you think Beck handled the situation.
When Dick was injured before the start of the 2006 season, the job went to Mustain. Mustain led Arkansas to eight consecutive victories. But leading up to the ninth game of the year against South Carolina, Nutt noticed a shift in Mustain's demeanor."It looked like something was really wrong," Nutt said. "At South Carolina, he threw a pick in the first series. Dick went in and won a huge game."
Constantly lurking on message boards for any opportunity to defend her son, telling everyone around that would listen that the whole university needed to burn for the way her son was treated....even after everyone involved in that situation was gone. Those two things were terrible decisions.
Best of luck to the guy. Enlisting as a collage grad. he should be able to go the officer route, do his 20, and get a pretty damned good retirement with benefits. Not shabby.What I think gets lost on so many with the Nutt/Mustain fiasco is that it was year 7 or 8 of Nutt's tenure at Arkansas, AND HE WAS STARTING A TRUE FRESHMAN! Think about that. It wasn't like we were losing QB's early to the NFL.
This post is probably not going to be popular, but...From the article:No, the job went to Robert Johnson after Dick was injured, not Mustain. Mustain came in at the end of the USC game only after all of the Trojans' penii were fully inserted into our rectum. Only after that game was he named the starter.Second, we won several of those now-famous eight consecutive games in spite of Mustain, not because of him. I agree with much of what has been said about Mustain's situation in this thread (i.e. he was under an enormous amount of pressure and was undoubtedly a victim of QB Killa's "development"), but to say that his getting pulled against S.C. came out of nowhere is revisionist history:9/9/2006 - Utah State: "Darren McFadden ran 184 yards, making Mitch Mustain (9 for 17, 119 yards) a winner in his first college start..."9/23/2006 - Alabama: Mustain goes 7 for 22, 99 yards with 1 TD to 3 INT (it should also be noted that this was the infamous Leigh Tiffin meltdown game)10/7/2006 - Auburn: Mustain goes 7 for 10, 87 yards and 1 TD, with 50 of those yards coming on one (phenomenal) catch and run by Marcus Monk10/14/2006 - Southeast Missouri State: in a 63-7 blowout, Mustain goes...wait for it...5 for 13 for 51 yards. Casey Dick actually replaced Mustain in the third quarter of this game and went 8 for 9, 98 yards and 2 TDs. Although against a ferocious opponent like SEMO, I'm not sure you can read too much into the box score.He did have a couple of good games (Vandy, Ole Miss), but I would argue he was hardly the driving force behind that 8-0 start. I think it was a combination of the McFadden/Jones/Hillis/Smith backfield and a largely-new offense (Malzahn's) that our opponents hadn't seen before and weren't prepared for.All that being said, I wish him luck as well. I never knew him personally of course, but I enjoyed watching him play and the excitement around that season.Now I'll go get that screen door ready.
so how did the team do after he was benched?
