USC backup QB Mitch Mustain has been thrown a career lifeline by the USC sanctions, the former prep wonderkid surely to consider transferring following the allowance for junior and senior trojans to transfer without penalty, provided not within the Pac-10 (or pac16 or whatever it will become). Mustain came to LA from Arkansas after a coaching reshuffle with hopes of being the next in a line of great Trojan QBs. Unfortunately it never worked out that way for Mustain with Mark Sanchez, Aaron Corp and Matt Barkley all sitting ahead of him over the 3 years. Mustain, now a senior, has a chance for one last season to give himself post college hopes, or wait at USC for a shot there or a Matt Cassel-esque opportunity.

The question is, who would give him a shot. Here is one idea…how about Penn State?
