Arkansas hopes it finally has its elite quarterback

Some think quarterback often has been a problem area at Arkansas.
But before accepting a blanket statement like that, let’s consider some facts.
• Just four years ago, Razorbacks quarterback Matt Jones was taken in the first round of the NFL draft. Then again, he was selected as a wide receiver.

• Clint Stoerner passed for more than 2,000 yards in three consecutive seasons. Of course, there was that unfortunate fumble against Tennessee in ’98.

• Just three years ago, Arkansas signed one of the most highly touted quarterback prospects in the country. But Mitch Mustain now is at USC – and apparently running third string.
