Nutt Turns Into Speedy Gonzalez

Houston Nutt plays “Whose Under Center?” (Hint: the winner is always the whims of the fickle fans)

Mitch Mustain’s apprenticeship lasted about three quarters.

Mustain was named Arkansas’ starting quarterback Sunday, less than 24 hours after the Razorbacks lost their season opener, 50-14, to No. 6 Southern California. The freshman made his college debut in the fourth quarter, leading Arkansas on a touchdown drive but also throwing an interception.

“Mitch has done some good things all through camp,” coach Houston Nutt said. “He’s been very accurate. He has shown some very good things under pressure. And then he gets in the game and can execute and take us down the field. I just feel like, at this time, you have to give him a shot.”

That was one of the quickest QB turnarounds in recent college football memory.
