Mustain Re-Enrolls at Arkansas

The Mitch Mustain story has taken yet another twist. The Arkansas quarterback, who was given his release earlier this week, has re-enrolled at Arkansas. Mustain has not rejoined the team and is not likely to stay a Razorback beyond the spring semester. The move reportedly was made to give Mustain more time to examine his transfer possibilities, but given all the bizarre developments this past week at Fayetteville, all bets are off. Mustain did visit Tulsa on Thursday, and Texas El Paso, Texas Tech and to a lesser degree Oklahoma are in the mix. ... The story also reached the pages of the New York Times. Thayer Evans interviewed Kurt Voigt, the prep sports editor at The Morning News in Springdale, Ark., where Mustain attended high school. Voigt also authored the book "Year of the Dog," which chronicled Mustain's senior season at Springdale and quoted the quarterback as saying that Arkansas coach Houston Nutt's offense was boring. Razorback fans remain split between Mustain and Nutt. "I had someone the other day refer to it as a civil war, and it is," Voigt said. "It really is. It's incredible. You have people in offices getting into fights, not fistfights, but real yelling debates."
