Mallett to sit out ’08 season after transferring from Michigan
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The NCAA ruled Friday that transfer quarterback Ryan Mallett must sit out a year before playing for Arkansas.

The Razorbacks had asked the NCAA to waive the requirement that Mallett sit out a year. Mallett transferred from Michigan after coach Lloyd Carr retired and was replaced by Rich Rodriguez.

Mallett can practice with the team, but not play during the 2008 season. He practiced with Arkansas this spring, but missed many practices with a thumb injury.
