Mitch Mustain does a fine job at 10-14-13 Little Rock Touchdown Club Part 5

2005 Springdale Bulldogs Arkansas State Champs

I thought that Mitch Mustain did a great job at the Little Rock Touchdown Club the other day and he came across as humble. He was part of one of the most talented Arkansas teams ever assembled. I give Houston Nutt credit for bringing together players like Peyton Hillis, Darren McFadden, and Felix Jones together and putting them in the same backfield. Can anyone remember a more talented backfield? When 13th ranked Tennessee came to Fayetteville to play Arkansas and ESPN game day was there we knew it was going to be a great game, but it really wasn’t because Mcfadden did a such a great job in the Wildcat offense as the quarterback. Out of that position he ran for a touchdown and he threw for one just in the first half and Phillip Fulmer said in his halftime interview: “McFadden is all man. We got to tackle his butt. We got an eight man front and we got to do that better. As the quarterback he is kicking out tale!!!!” (This was when the score was 28-7 at halftime and Arkansas went on to win 31-14.)

During his talk at the Little Rock Touchdown Club Mustain said that the movie really filled in the blanks and if we wanted to know more then check out the movie. I am looking forward to seeing it.

A Mitch Mustain Movie Is Coming

By – Apr 18th, 2013 at 1:22 pm

Clips from an in-development Mitch Mustain movie surfaced over a year ago, and the project seems to be coming to fruition.

The upcoming NFL draft renews conversation of busts every year around this time. Football fans can rattle off a laundry list of college stars who never made it as professionals. The highly touted prep football prospects who never achieve collegiate stardom are less recognizable.

The Identity Theft of Mitch Mustain (EP Trailer) from Incognito Mosquito Flicks on Vimeo.

The Identity Theft of Mitch Mustain will premiere at the Little Rock Film Festival in May. It is an interesting concept with the proliferation of football recruiting. High schoolers become household names before ever wearing an athletic department-issued set of pads.

The explosion of recruiting coverage really began in the early 2000s, and Mustain was an early superstar; a can’t-miss prospect. And he showed flashes of the anticipated brilliance with the Arkansas Razorbacks.

In 2006, he threw 10 touchdowns and helped Arkansas to a 10-win season. But he transferred that offseason and landed at USC, where his career never took off.

Mustain played in limited capacity, throwing just 89 passes in his two seasons as a Trojan. His time at USC is perhaps more notable for his February 2011 arrest in a drug sting, though felony chargers were never brought up.

Mustain’s since made attempts to fulfill his athletic promise. In the spring of 2011, he attended a United Football League tryout my friend and Yahoo! Sports editor Cody Brunner covered from the player’s perspective.

He later pursued baseball in the Chicago White Sox organization. Mustain made 19 appearances pitching for the Bristol White Sox and Kannapolis Intimidators.

The above trailer looks promising. The quarterback’s life has certainly had some interesting turns. At the very least, the Mitch Mustain movie can be a guide for the next generation of young recruits who will never see their NFL dreams play out through the college gridiron.
