Arkansas preview or gay porn?

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Robert Johnson is getting another chance to start at quarterback for Arkansas.

Johnson, benched midway through last season when the Razorbacks needed a spark, was made the starter for 2006 on Wednesday night. Coach Houston Nutt's announcement ended -- for now -- a three-way competition between Johnson, Casey Dick and prized freshman Mitch Mustain.

"Robert has improved greatly and we want everybody to get behind him," Nutt said.

Johnson started the first seven games of 2005 as a sophomore, but Arkansas was 2-5. Dick, a freshman, played the last four games. The Razorbacks finished 4-7, their second consecutive losing season.

Dick threw for 584 yards with seven touchdowns and four interceptions in 2005, and Johnson threw for 876 yards, five touchdowns and six interceptions.

Johnson's prospects for this season appeared dim at first. Dick had shown potential, and Mustain, the heralded in-state recruit from Springdale High School, was on his way.

But Johnson played well during spring practice, and his improvement continued in the fall. Also, Arkansas overhauled its offense in the offseason, bringing in Gus Malzahn -- Mustain's coach at Springdale -- to become offensive coordinator and hiring Alex Wood as quarterbacks coach.

"It gave each one of us a fresh start, come in and learn a new offense," Johnson said.

Meanwhile, Dick has been bothered by a back injury that has caused him to miss some practice time.

"Right now, we are working with two quarterbacks," Nutt said. "I feel for Casey Dick. He has been through a lot and he's very frustrated. This is not what we planned."

Nutt said Dick wouldn't be ready for Arkansas' opener Sept. 2 against Southern California, and the team needs to move forward with a clear No. 1 quarterback. He hopes Johnson will be helped by having more experience than at this time last year.

"Robert Johnson is a little older and I think he is much better now then he was a year ago," Nutt said. "We are going to keep him going and hopefully our team will keep improving."

I think you're projecting

No I think that you are.

You shut your mouth when you're talking to me!

LOL @ Johnson, Nutt & Dick.

holy shitskies, johnson sucks.  i predict he gets pulled DURING the first play against USC.

johnson gets pulled?  johnson...  pulled...    heh, nevermind.  sorry.

Johnson gets pulled becasue Nutt likes what comes out of Dick which leads to a Mustain.  Dick Mustain with Nutt is also common sense.  It seems that Johnson needs to get some fast and long reps to allow a Mustain on the field.

OK it gets better, I found out tonight during the USC game that the quarterbacks coach last name is Wood.

the best is houston's brother, dickie nutt.  no shit.  he might still be the women's basketball coach at arkansas state.

Jesus.
