Mustain in Holding Pattern at Arkansas

The latest episode of As The Piggy Turns has us learning that all-everything quarterback Mitch Mustain re-enrolling at Arkansas.

This is probably not a move indicating a return to the Razorback team as Mustain has asked for and received permission to seek a transfer. Thus, holding pattern on the runway to leave the Razorback program.

He has been rumored to be looking at three schools (Tulsa, Louisville and Oklahoma), according to the Arkansas Traveler. The Wizard of Odds expands that list to UTEP and Texas Tech but notes several schools have backed off.
It appears you can scratch Louisville and Oklahoma off Mitch Mustain's list. The quarterback, who earlier this week was given his release by Arkansas, was told Thursday by Cardinals coach Steve Kragthorpe that he wasn't welcome.

"Due to widespread media speculation, the University of Louisville is not interested in recruiting Mitch Mustain," Kragthorpe said.

And a report out of Norman said Oklahoma had closed the door on Mustain becoming a Sooner.
Slim pickings, eh? The responsibility for the mess at Arkansas cannot be completely laid at the feet of Mustain but other major programs are giving him that safe distance of a man far more guilty than has been documented. Interesting.
