No, we didn’t forget.
Q A local paper said last fall that MM had trouble in the locker room with some of his fellow players, and also had trouble with coach Nutt, even while he was still in high school.
The same paper, this past week, reported that MM received a controversial e-mail from a booster while at Arkansas, and that MM’s attorney requested university e-mails re this incident, and that coach Nutt’s cellphone records were requested.
When asked about this, MM replied that he did not want to talk about it.
I’m not sure how to phrase my question, so I’ll just ask you–in general–do you have any details–or thoughts, feelings,comments, that you can share with us on this matter?
A. Everything you mentioned was already reported in the Arkansas papers. I suggest you read those articles. The text messages on Nutt’s cellphone were also a major issue back in Arkansas because there were so many to a female TV reporter. So anyways, yes, it’s well-known Mustain was unhappy and did not get along with Nutt. No one transfers because they are happy.
Q I read on Pete Carroll’s blog that there is an all new offensive playbook being prepared for spring training with completely new plays. So how much of the entire playbook (percentage wise) is all new and how much is brought over from last year? Are any plays from last year being removed?
A Perhaps dashing your hopes, the playbook is not being thrown away and revamped. Remember last year, the shotgun was being installed at this time a year ago. And we all know how dramatic that was. Some new plays will be installed but until we something dramatic, we’ll reserve judgment.
