The blood letting in Arkansas over the Mitch Mustain, Houston Nutt, Frank Broyles, Gus Malzahn, alumni hate
- -- Drama not tied to Springdale - Springdale Morning News
Instead, my friend is left without as much hope for the long term after a divorce between Malzahn, Mustain and the Arkansas program. It's a taste that is even more bitter given that seemingly every top football recruit in the state is finding a way to leap that imaginary fence as quickly as possible on their way to top programs elsewhere.-- The Sinking Ship of Arkansas Football - Springdale Morning News
As much good as Broyles has done for Arkansas in the past 50 years, it's time for him to gracefully accept his accolades and turn the reins over to somebody else. Why would he even want to stay around through this mess? As for Nutt, he'll coach himself out of a job before too long.-- Hawgs Only Solution: Clean House - Ft. Smith Times Record
Sadly for Razorback fans, by keeping Nutt and losing Malzahn, Broyles just traded a Cadillac for a (Danny) Ford -- one that can't pass.
According to a Dec. 8 column by Matt Mosley on the Dallas Morning News’ CowboysPlus.com Web site, Nutt (and/or Broyles) approached David Lee about becoming the co-offensive coordinator in February 2006 ... after National Signing Day. After Malzahn had delivered three of the Springdale players to Nutt’s doorstep. Think about the dishonesty involved in that scenario.
Malzahn convinced players to attend UA based on those promises. But behind his back, there was already scheming and plotting to demote him before the Razorbacks even went through spring drills.
At the end of the day, Mustain is still at Arkansas while he looks for another school to accept him.
