It's set to debut in May at the Little Rock Film Festival it also features ESPN's Joe Schad. Here's a link with an article about the film and it's release along with a new trailer. Should be an interesting film.

When is the Mal-a-zahn documentary coming out?  My favorite part would be his wife telling Armani Ronnie: "And Gus was like, shut up!"

Anyways....sorry to intrude on the thread derail. Should be interesting. But, we already know good story. Shouldn't we be focusing on kids that weren't handed everything they wanted for  19 years? The first actual hard times this kid faced were over where he'd get his free education. Just shows we'll give anyone a documentary. Hope it surprises me.

Why thank you DOGALUM.  Your opinion is appreciated! 

Ben Cleveland if I recall seemed to be the most tragic of them all (Springdale 5) what with the injuries and talent never realized after he, like the others, came to become Hogs together and were ran off or ruined by Hootie's Clown Posse.  Something got into the mind of the kicker, too, and a kid who didn't miss 50 yarders in high school all the sudden couldn't make 30 yarders in college. 

As for the trailer, the choice Nolan to be narrator makes 100% perfect sense!!

Oh and look below, there is Armani Ronnie right there offering his hand to Hogville at the bottom of the page!  Why did he let that woman do that to herself??  Lol his uncomfortableness was priceless.  Anyone have a link to that interview?  I lost it somewhere...

Supposedly has an original score by someone.  I see that Fayetteville's favorite bartender Benji del Shreve has some original music on the soundtrack...

Film is being scored right now by Lendell Black, from what I understand. It will premier at the Little Rock Film Fest. Matt Wolfe is no hack, so it should be good.

The butthurt is strong in this thread. 

Appropriate, since it is now taboo to support or reminisce the Springdale 5 or (and especially) Gus Mal-a-zahn.

Actually the trailer looked well-produced and interesting. One day, we will finally get to hear what actually happened, but I doubt most of us will hear too much new from this. Hopefully, in a few years, everybody involved will be interviewed in a neutral setting by a neutral party. The UofA/Nutt line is all we've heard publicly, Malzahn's not gonna talk anytime soon. (perhaps when he's through coaching he will.) I'm still waiting for someone with clout to characterize the FOIA investigation as something other than trying to catch Nutt texting Donna Bragg. Nobody in the media has ever taken the Hootie/Danny/TP texts to each other seriously. I doubt it's even brought up in this. I'd like to get some perspective on Mitch's mom. Was she REALLY a meddling busybody stage mom, or is that just the Nutt party line pushed to the media?

Uh oh. Then you can bet it won't portray the UA in a positive light.
Maybe even give ole Nolan one more public chance to gore his hated "white haired devil".
It is spilled milk, old "news", digging up bones, all minus/no plus, and not that interesting. I'll pass.

I still wonder why no one called Danny under the carpet as the circles were closing in on him, then he suddenly resigned for health reasons (thus his computer couldn't be FOI'd) but then was perfectly fine once they got to Ole Miss.

From the clip I heard, Nolan is just talking about Mitch, not himself. His narration sounds good. I know he's done plenty of interviews (to say the least) which I suppose prepares you for this sort of thing, but he sounds like a pro, at least from the short clip.

Someone should do a Hogville Documentary where all these questions are answered. Maybe we can dig up Big Deal for the rebuttal.

I don't think that's the case at all, from what I know of the project. Matt Wolfe said that he and a friend were discussing narrators, and the friend said, "Would you rather have Nolan Richardson or Morgan Freeman narrate?" Matt realized that he'd choose Nolan hand's down, so then he began to try to make it happen. Bizarrely, Nolan agreed to do it (maybe to build up his voiceover resume?).

I don't get the Identity Theft part. No one stole his name and went on to QB greatness.  Seems like a better title would be "The quick trigger fingering of Mitch Mustain."   :)

You are completely off base about that. Nolan's interest has nothing to do with the U. of A. In fact he was never mad at the U. of A. He had issues with Frank, John White and at least one BOT member. None of those people are decision makers at the U of A and these days he has no issues whatsoever with the athletic department, school administration or any BOT members.

As far his his interest in Mitch's situation that goes all the way back to 2006 when it had become obvious that Mitch had been benched by Nutt and would stay benched.

I ran into Nolan before the SEC championship game and he asked me what was going on with Mitch. I told him what I knew. He said to me (paraphrasing because it's been a while), I didn't think anything about the kid getting benched at first because I did that all the time with rookies. Sometimes they just need to sit a while and watch. But at some point you have to put them back in. If you don't you'll destroy whatever confidence they have left.

Nolan went on to say that when Mitch stayed on the bench he knew that it was not a football issue but something personal with Nutt toward Mustain.

Bottom line, he thinks the kid got screwed because of Nutt's massive ego.

My own view, based on conversations I've had in the last few months with some of Frank's closest supporters, is that there was a belief by them that Frank needed to retire. White was after him and they knew it was only a matter of time until he got Frank.
The man was in his early 80's. He did not wield the power he once had and his decision making had dropped off.

The plan was to hire Gus, win the SEC two or three years down the road, convince Nutt to take Frank's job for the good of the program, and make Gus the head coach.

Nutt was well aware of this plan. He hated the idea. His goal in 2006 was to win enough games to avoid getting fired and then figure out a way to demote Gus and either take over the play calling again or hire somebody for that job that he could control.

Guess what? His plan worked perfectly.

My issue with Nutt is, he should have told the boosters pushing Gus to buzz off. If you don't like my staff fire me but you're not telling me who to hire.

Instead he did what they asked and in the process of getting rid of Malzahn he and his supporters blamed the whole mess on Mustain and his mother.

They were both easy targets.

Mitch is an introvert who doesn't live, eat and breathe football. Off the field he tends to go his own way. It was easy to turn that into, he's a self centered jerk who wants his own way.

Beck Campbell is actually a fairly low key person but if she thinks you're trying to mess with her or her kids she will get nasty in a heartbeat. She had that reputation in Springdale. Those that know her will tell you that raising her kids as a divorced mom she felt she had to be the mom and the dad of the family. At times the "dad" had to get into people's faces.

Stories were being spread about her when Mitch was a junior in high school. I know. I heard these stories from Nutt's supporters.

The main rumor was very clear. Wherever Mitch played his mom was going to be there controlling things.

Really?

Then how is it that he went to USC and she continued to live in Arkansas? How is it that the entire time he was a USC she had one conversation with Pete Carroll?

Ask any of them if Beck Campbell tried to run the team?

In a nutshell (pardon the pun) Nutt and Gus were involved in a power struggle. Mitch Mustain and Ben Cleveland (who also got caught up in this mess) paid the price for that struggle.

Seven years after the fact that stuff is still outrageous.

Also, for those who care and to echo some of Mike Irwin's comments about Beck Campbell:

She's not involved in the documentary and declined to participate in any way, shape, or form (at least that's what I've been told).

Q: Do you think this Nutt/Mustain/Broyles/Malzahn "documentary" will portray the UA in a positive light?

If not, why would Nolan Richardson agree to be the narrator of such a thing?
