Football cometh: Remembering Nutt, Malzahn, Mustain

  • COMPETING VISIONS: Gus Malzahn and Houston Nutt couldn't get on the same page offensively.

With football season six weeks or so away, the sports pages of the SEC are ginning out reams of copy to sate fans. And speaking of reams:

An Alabama writer, preparing for former Arkansas coach Gus Malzahn's first year at Auburn, takes readers on an epic-length ride through Arkansas football history. Ah, the days of Houston Nutt, Gus Malzahn, Mitch Mustain, the Springdale Five, email wars, a controversial high school football book and more — updated with interviews of the key figures today on that high drama. Much of the discussion centers on Nutt's resistance to fully implementing Malzahn's offensive schemes.

A must for football nuts. For others? Maybe not so much. Interviews with Mustain's mother and Teresa Prewett, the Nutt pal who memorably stirred the pot back then, could have spiced up the story considerably.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
