Quarterbacks Do Enough To Get Job Done
And he didn't really have to in a lopsided 44-10 win against Louisiana-Monroe in front of 55,420 fans.
Mustain was only 7 of 18 passing for 71 yards, 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. In his defense, he also had three passes dropped.
"There are some things we still need to improve on," Mustain said. "I made some mistakes like those interceptions.
"The first one, I thought I saw one thing then tried to hold the ball back and tried to keep it but it just came out. The second one, I don't know what happened. It's hard to tell, judging on remembering it.
"I don't know if I just threw it too hard or what."
Mustain played almost three full quarters but gave way to sophomore Casey Dick, first with 5:54 left before halftime, and then in the final minute of the third quarter.
"I think they were trying to get Casey some reps," Mustain said. "We didn't lose any momentum. That was the main thing."
Dick, who was 2 for 4 for 17 yards, kept things mostly close to the vest, relying on his running backs to move the chains.
"It was real easy going out there because our running backs did a good job for us," Dick said. "I came in pretty early but that's just something that happens.
"If it happens, you have to be ready."
With South Carolina, Tennessee, Mississippi State and LSU on the horizon, Mustain must concentrate on the stretch drive.
So, how's his comfortable level?
"I feel fine," Mustain said. "I don't know to gauge it."
What about gauging the passing game?
"I think we are feeling more comfortable with our passing," Mustain said. "We've been working on it. Tonight was a good night to do that. We didn't have a lot of completions but for the most part I think we got more comfortable with it and got a little more organized with it."
