he was at usc's trojan huddle yesterday. I, however, don't want him.

He will get ZERO playing time at USC if he transfers. I think his best bet would be to stay at Arkansas or transfer to a smaller school...

he is a idiot if he thinks he'll ever play at USC.... Sanchez is older than him but I wouldn't doubt them pulling in another 5 star signal caller this year.

They signed Aaron Corp this year who will be their next big QB.

Mustain should seriously consider going to a school on the rise like a Kentucky or a Vanderbilt in order to make a name for himself

Does anyone know if Mustain is practicing in the Spring with Arkansas?

He's at Tulsa, I think... or at least that's what I remember hearing. I am probably wrong.

He would be ruining his college career going to USC, unless he thinks he can start over Sanchez...

I don't know if thats official but it would make sense with his former HS coach taking the OC job there and their starting QB Paul Smith is a senior. He'd be able to sit out this year and instantly be the starter in 2008.

Mustain was the #1 QB in the country entering Arkansas and could definitely compete with Sanchez, he transferred because Houston Nutt doesn't throw the ball, which is also the reason the offensive coordinator left for Tulsa. Mustain will be fine wherever he decides to transfer.

I wouldn't put money on it. If he was going to leave he probably would've gone by now. I may be wrong, but i think he'll stay.

Regardless, he isn't anything special. One of the more overrated prospects in recent memory.

JCarver27
04-12-2007, 03:48 PM
No he's leaving. He stayed in school because there was some kind of deadline and he couldn't work out which school he wanted to be at before then, so he just enrolled for the semester or whatever the new time period is.

Maybe he wants to be a career backup? I don't see him getting playing time over Booty or Sanchez.

It would be kinda funny if Sanchez outplayed him and made Mustain ride the bench until his RS Senior season.

I'm sure alot of Razorback fans would love it.

well i dont know how i feel about mustain coming here because I really want to see Sanchez start next and then Aaron Corp. I dont want him to cut into their playing time here at USC

Corp has no chance at beating out Mustain once Sanchez is gone. Mustain wasn't National POY for nothing.

Doesn't next years transfer year 2007 just count as a year off for him making him a True Soph. in 2008. Then he could RS in 2008 makiing him a RS Junior in 2009 which would leave him two years to start. Rocky Hinds did the same thing. He had already used his RS at USC, then sat out 2005, and entered last year as a RS Soph. The year off doesn't have to be a player's RS year does it?

Mustain played last year taking up his freshman season of eligibility. For transfers, it requires you to sit out one season. So Mustain will redshirt so he will not lose that season. So he will be a RS Sophmore for 2008.

He can play on the scout team, giving alot of help in practice, though.

i wonder why he chose to come here though, there are probably so many other division 1 schools he could have started playing at immediately after his transfer went through. Texas, Oklahoma, UCLA, Cal, Oregon, Virginia Tech all make more sense to me than him choosing to come here. on the bright side though, if he does good it will be one more player at our disposal though i guess...

Texas? I guess if Colt McCoy wasn't only in his Soph year and had a great Frosh year then yea that would make sense kinda...

maybe texas wasnt the best example but i still see it as a better choice than USC with all the depth at QB. i think he should have looked at Cal, Oregon, VT and Oklahoma though

If Corp is as good as advertised he'll beat out Mustain.

Mitch looked pretty pedestrian every time I watched him play. Matt Stafford was the best freshman QB in the SEC last year, but Mustain got all the hype.

well i havent seen much of mustain except a few highlights and the USC vs. Arkansas game. i wasnt too impressed with what he did in the arkansas game. looked like he threw short, safe passes that only amounted in a few yards...maybe he wasnt as good in that game or has improved. i guess there is a reason why he is so high recruited but i do think corp still has potential to beat him out. might give sanchez a little more insentive to work harder knowing that mustain is here too which could be good

SuperKevin
04-20-2007, 12:23 AM
One has to assume that the coaching staff told him the job will most likely be his because it's not everyday a guy decides to transfer to a team with two 5 star prospects already on the depth chart

RWFender1
04-20-2007, 12:29 AM
good chance but on the other hand there are no garuntees at USC. technically its not even garunteed John David Booty will start next year but its pretty obvious he will. stafon johnson was the top recruited running back last year out of all the RBs and he has barely seen the field.

That was only his very first college game. He looked impressive enough for it being the start of his college career.

Still, a stupid move considering there are plenty of other schools that he could've gone to where he could've essentially been guaranteed the starter spot after sitting out the year.

I agree. He could have gone to the University of Kentucky and taken over for Andre Woodson

I dont want to be mean hear but... Mustain will sit the bench for the rest of his carrer maybe some games here and there but not a starter. The players Pete C. gets he wont play. Maybe he will get drafted in the 7th round as a senoir (matt cassell type thing)

If he went to a D2 school. He would not only play the rest of his carrer he would put of huge numbers and get drafted (3-4) as the best small school player.

MY GOSH!!!!


First of all, NOT ONE PERSON HERE knows what they are talking about. You don't have any idea of what type of QB he is, why he transferred, etc.

First of all, as far as his QB skills, considering he was a freshman, didn't do all of too bad. Also didn't have the best crop of WR's in the world either. marcus Monk is an NFL WR but even he is extremely unpolished. Damian williams was okay but had trouble getting off the line at times and had a case of the droppies.

The reason he transferred is a little bit complex. of course he was the main cog in the springdale 5. At first, Neither he, nor Webb (OL for ND) nor Damian Williams, or Ben Cleveland had any intentions of playing for Arkansas. none whatsoever. Damian committed to Florida, Mitch was in love with ND and Michigan was a possibility. What made it worse is, springdale is a 10 minute drive from Arkansas's home field. you couldn't drive around town without hearing how bad of a recruiter houston nutt was, how you can not put a fence around your state, etc.

Houston Nutt somehow convinces Mustian to commit to Arkansas before his season starts. however, he sees the tragedy that was the arkansas's offense and thought better of it and de-committed.

So coming off a 4 and 7 season, Nutt was on the hot seat big time. After the season, Frank Boyle's (the AD) and the BOD met with Nutt and made him hire Gus as their Offensive Coordinator.. for thoose of you who don't know Nutt had been the offensive cordnator the entire time he has been at arkansas.

With the promise of Gus that the offense was going to change, which was really the S5's only concern about playing in a predictable jr high offensive scheme, all but Webb committed to Arkansas. All was well in Arkansas land.

So practice comes around and Mitch isn't red shirted, even though we had a true freshman as a starter the previous year (can't say I disagree, Mustian's better). however, neither one of them get the start in the USC game, Robert Johnson gets the start.. and after that game was switched to WR never to see QB again (although he has become a more than serviceable WR, best route runner on the team). Mitch comes in, and drives us to a touchdown in his first series.

After that, with the game slipping away, Mitch forces some balls, makes a couple of bad plays, but considering it was his first game as a college athlete, it was a hell of a showing.

so Frank Broyles than demands that mitch be the starter, so he is.

Mitch goes 8 and 0. however what you don't see is the offense never opening up, and arkansas, regardless of us hiring Gus as the offensive cordnator, Nutt is still calling all the plays.

You'd be pissed too.

Arkansas fans get a bad rep. it's not the lack of passing that pisses us off.. we have one of the best running back tandems ever. it's that when we are forced to pass the ball (i.e LsU, FL, Wisconsin), we fail and we fail miserably. Our WR's don't' know how to run routes, and usually we only run plays where there are 2 or even 1 WR in the entire Spread. Our QB's don't know how to read coverages, etc. All this comes from a lack of coaching, and a lack of practicing.

So we end the year. Gus actually gets Cordnatior of the year via rivals, AND TRANSFERS TO TAKE THE SAME JOB AT TULSA!!! to get away from arkansas. it's that bad.

Then (and this is one of the real reasons he left, not what you have read) One of houston nutt's friends, actually I think it's a friend of Danny Nutt, his brother and RB coach, emailed Mitch and basically blasted him, calling him names that you don't call a college freshman and you defeinatly don't do so if you are a friend of the Head Football coaches.

Then all this is brought to frank broyles, and Frank basically tells him tough **** kid, and that "he wouldn't make it in the SEC because he's not mobile enough".

So after all that, you'd leave to.

USC is getting a HELL of a QB. He's a VErY smart kid, he has all the tools in the world, has a little learning to do, but he's not a "mommas boy" like he's been spun out to be.. he got an extremely raw deal

Look at what happened this year. Not one top ARK player in arkansas would take arkansas seriously.. no one wants to be a part of that mess. We win 10 games and have probably the worst recruiting year since Nutt has been on the hill. We lost Burns and Ziemba (future 1st rounder, book it) to Auburn. We lost the running back to USC (I forgot his name) and we lost a WR that was highly recruited to Texas.

Ryan mallet was ours to loose since he was a sophomore, but when Nutt had him come to camp and try out as a tight end ,he promptly dropped us off his list.


Right after the Mustain situation, the BOD made Boryles resign at the end of this coming year (it will be his 50th year with arkansas, so they are letting him stay until then)

anyway, i'm getting pissed talking about it.

There is a good chance that he ends up starting for SC after Booty leaves, but there's also a pretty good chance he never gets to be a starter. As a college player it must be very enticing to play for SC right now. If Mustain becomes a starter, hes almost definately a first round pick, but he could also go undrafted if he doesnt start. High risk, high reward. Good luck to him.
