Springdale, AR. Dec. 6, 2005
Mitch Mustain of Springdale, selected as Gatorade National Player of the Year, has apologized to the University of Arkansas for apparently forgetting to include them in his latest list of top selections for his collegiate football career. Mustain, whose mother's name is Campbell which is confusing to say the least, says his oversight had nothing to do with the fact that Arkansas fired the guy in charge of his recruitment without consulting his mother.
Privately, Mustain has told close friends that he felt like he had been "Dicked" by Nutt who, he says, hasn't been straight with him.
Meanwhile, Nutt says he understands how the oversight could happen. "Just the other day, I made a similar oversight when I forgot to include ......eh, one of the eastern schools, ...eh, a very special school that has some very special atheletes and starts with a V, I think, in my top 20 coaches poll, anyway I won't forget them after the season is over I assure you."
The University of Arkansas football team finished the 2005 season with a 4-7 record, down from the previous year's 5-6 record, but included a resounding sweep of the dangerous Mississippi schools and several close games that could have been won if Nutt's dog had not eaten his game plan.
In other related news, Darren McFadden has recieved two unprecedented honors for an Arkansas player by his selection as SEC freshman of the year and All SEC 1st team running back. This has heightened speculation that Arkansas will be putting special emphasis on any future quarterback's ability to hand the ball off.
