Madgun, Gus is a god in Springdale. Anything associated with Springdale is a god in Springdale.
Well respected...yes. A god...no. We don't use that word lightly.

Gus will jump ship every 3 years or less ...Ladder climber!

I was referring to gods, you know - money, football coaches, schools, etc.

Gus is definitely well respected in Arkansas in general, he is a great guy but definitely too humble to be associated with a lot that I see on here.

I wouldn't hire him if I thought he would probably leave in the next 2 years.

That's never good for ANY Program at ANY Level.

Can't blame the guy for moving up... just don't like the short term pattern he has had recently, I think he will make one more short term move and fizzle out somewhere!

To answer your question yes the Capital One Bowl is a better bowl than the Cotton Bowl.

I don't know if I agree with that.  Capital One would have rather had Florida for sure.  Cotton wants the Hogs.  Hogs played a higher-ranked opponent, though the Wolverines finished strong.  It's hard for me to say that Capital One is more desirable.  Just opinion.

The more legit teams they play at Tulsa the less likely Gus will be able to realize his potential in his next coaching move. If he is coaching a team with equal talent levels of the opponent he will shine, when he has to step up and play against teams with much better talent it hurts his chances for the next level. So, I think he needs to make a move soon as an SEC coordinator and then try the head coaching ranks. Right now his potential as a head coach is somewhere like Arkansas State at best. Just my opinion.

He won't be a head coach until he can show that he can recruit, and I don't mean from the high he just left and all those players leave that school in two years!

he will be dangerous in the SEC just looks at the hogs after he left. they had a terrible year and got blasted in the cotton bowl.


The high powered offense he took to the Citrus Bowl while he was the OC here only managed 14 points. They got blasted in the Cotton Bowl by a dang good Mizzou team after our HC debacle went down last year not because Gus wasn't here.

Gus Malzahn makes a MAJOR difference at EVERY school he has coached at from being the Head Coach at Hughes High School to being the Offensive Coordinator for the Tulsa Golden Hurricane and that will continue to happen wherever he coaches. Even in the SEC. The guy is an offensive genius and surrounds himself with the right coaches to win in any situation.

Excuse me! He is the Co- Offensive Coordinator of the Golden Hurricane. I think there is a reason he wasn't given the full reins and named the OC by himself.

They run Malzahn's offense and he does ALL the playcalling. He is THE offensive coordinator. The other guy just coaches the offensive line. Oh yeah and the one year he was at Arkansas the Hogs won more games in a season than they had in 10 years. We saw how great the Wildcat formation worked after Malzahn left.

Are any of the cry babies from that vaunted class at Springdale High still at the U of A?  That was a friggin circus.  Hiring Malzahn was the worst mistake Arkansas ever made.

looked like it worked pretty well when the talent was there to run it.
they took the starting job away from gus's boy because he couldn't cut it.
there's a reason he was only there for one year.

When the talent was there to run it? Arkansas had the same guys in 2006 as they had in 2005. The difference is that Malzahn wasnt making the playcalls. I guess Mustain can "CUT IT" enough for USC to give him a full ride. I dont think Arkansas State would give Casey Dick a scholarship if he would have decided to leave the U of A. By the way Damian Williams seems to be "CUTTING IT" just fine at USC! But then again he had trouble dropping balls and couldnt get off the line of scrimmage at Arkansas! HA :-D

I totally disagree about Gus and the Hogs.  Houston Nutt was mad b/c they made him hire Gus, so I think he pulled Mustain to show Gus that he (Nutt) was still in charge.   I think the biggest mistake was keeping Nutt and losing Mustain, Williams and Gus.  Just think what we might have done last year with Mustain and Williams pulling some of the coverage off of McFadden and Jones.

It is a travesty that we have had such pitiful QBing (sorry Casey - you are a great kid, but ...) while Mustain is out there and Kodi Burns is at Auburn - 2 Arkansas kids that Nutt let get away.  You can say all you want to about Mustain's ego etc.  but don't forget he was just an 18 year old kid.  How many 17-18 year-old kids wouldn't get a little full of themselves with all the attention Mustain got and with his mom and all those Springdale people pumping him full of himself.  He was a kid caught in the middle of a bunch of big boys with even Bigger egos.  He was treated terribly and Nutt is a blow hard.  I get tired of the Springdale smack - but I am totally with them on this one.  Damien Williams is amazing and he was amazing in HS and we should have done anything to keep him!  IMO, of course.

i'm pretty sure your boy mustain hasn't seen much playing time this year, and won't.
damian is doing good.
my point was that they executed the wildcat/wildhog whatever you call it, just as good without malzahn. easily just as good.

I have said this many times, you simply cannot claim MM is that great as a college player because his stats will not back it up.  CD had just as good a year if you look at the stats and now is one of the better QB's in UA history if you look at stats.   MM played OK, weaker teams and still struggled to put up big numbers.  Now he is a backup at USC, and not proving his superstar hype there.   If it changes in the future I'll be happy to say so.

Like I said guys anything Springdale is a god to anyone from Springdale. You only have to scroll up on this page to understand it. This kid is arguing against the state he lives and supposedly the football program he supports to try and make GUS, MITCH, and DAMIEN look better. Just admit they are the greatest and he will go away.

The first time but the second time Sanchez got hurt Mustain was going to start. You obviously dont watch any USC games if you dont think Mustain is the second string QB. As far as Barclay coming to USC that doesnt really matter considering ever QB at USC including Mustain was a top 5 QB out of high school. Mustain will be the starting QB as a senior. He nearly beat out Sanchez for the starting job this season. Pete Carroll said he decided to go with Sanchez because he was more familiar with the offense.

my question to you, my friend, is did he start?
well...?
and this freshman QB they have coming in will play over him.
he already got beat out by a freshman, proving it can be done.
but hey, look on the bright side, he could win the "service team offensive player of the year" award again on  the scout team. haha

1. i cannot stand Mr. Nutt.
2. you're correct. he doesn't give scholarships to just anyone. i never said he didn't have a scholarship. you used the words "full ride" and i said he DID NOT have a full ride.  full ride are big words at a D1 school like USC.
3. he may have been the biggest recruit in history. but i think he's up there with the top 3 biggest busts in school history. yes, he has an 8-0 record. thats as a starter. he started 8 games that the rest of the team, (mcfadden and jones, to name two) saved his butt in.
mitch mustain had 1 less interception than he did touchdown pass in his 1 season at UofA. not very good numbers.

If you are rating him based on being 8-0 then you know little that makes him a good player.  Those games were won by the running game not the QB.  Those teams were the weakest part of the UA schedule.  Is he a good college qb or not, that's all I care about.

Keep in mind gentlemen, that 8th game Mitch got credit for starting and being a "win" for him as a starter, he ONLY played that one first series, threw the interception and NEVER played another down. Actually, Dick was the QB who played virtually the whole game I think.
  And, Nutt was just looking for a reason to show Mr. Mustain who was boss after having read THE BOOK and reading what MM said about him. Nutt NEVER forgot that and we see how an immature adult can lower himself to an immature high school/Freshman college student.. Nutt deserved what MM said about him, based on his "used car salesman" antics on and off the field. But, MM does have an ego, fired and fueled by his mom. Seems like another USC QB I heard of went to the PROs and is starting and did NOT play a down at USC. Maybe someone in the PROs will know MM has an arm..... etc.. yea, right!  ;)

Mitch Mustain will not start next year because he does not have the talent to be the starter. If you want to know a lot of behind the scenes info on Mustain, you need only to talk with Broderick. I seriously doubt that Mustain will be drafted in the pro's, as he does not have the arm strength he needs.

Mitch will start next year IF Mark Sanchez goes pro this year. There is no way a freshman will start over him. Mitch had to learn the offense his first year which sanchez had already learned and gave him a leg up. Mitch will be the next starting QB at USC. Oh like someone said Matt Cassell I think he rode the pine to at USC i think he is doing fine now. One more thing Mitch doesn't have the arm strength hahahaha thats funny.
