Well, football continues its hypocrisy. Just transfer and get a second, third or sixteenth chance. All the discussion about players deserving another chance, after they have had a second one does cull the schools that have ethics from those that don't. Oregon schools do, but Ole Miss does not. Love Ole Miss and was a big supporter of Nutt who got a raw deal at Arkansas, but maybe those folks were right after all.

As an Ole Miss fan I was very concerned with the addition of Jeremiah Masoli to the Rebel football team. The wisdom of that decision will be truly known at a later date. That being said the rules, as far as I could see were followed. I would imagine that rule will be changed as quickly as possible...and it should be. Loopholes in rules have been used by many schools in this area and around the country. As a life long Rebel fan I find it amusing to watch all the haters(like Geoff Caulkins) get on their soapboxes to beat on Ole Miss.I'm sure he will say every time we win a game, we would have lost it without Masoli.

First, this isn't Masoli's second, third, or sixteenth chance. This is Masoli's LAST chance as a collegiate quarterback or even as a law-abiding citizen. Let's review Michael Vick, Brett Favre, Maurice Clarrett, and others in other sports. It doesn't stop at sports. People, in general, should get a second chance. I commend Houston Nutt for reaching out and attempting to help player's with troubled pasts. Ole Miss has tried this before (reference Brent Schaefer) and not all of them had the best outcome. Players get kicked off the team, students get kicked out of school, and criminals get kicked out of society. In most cases, everyone receives advice and a plan of action of how to stay on track. It's not about how hard Masoli gets hit or even knocked down. It's about how he takes the punches, gets back up, and keeps moving forward. I don't believe Ole Miss is giving an image of getting thugs off the street and letting them play ball. He is an intelligent athlete that has received a degree from a respectable university. Football is not just about throwing, catching, running, and tackling. It's a team sport where people work together. It helps build character. I don't recall ever seeing Nutt's team members ever punch out a member of another team after losing a game. Ever consider Ole Miss just might be better at DEVELOPING an INDIVIDUAL?

Ole Miss wants to be "somebody" so bad they would hire Bin Laden if he could throw a ball 20 yards. Do us all a favor: Leave the SEC and go for conference usa!

Hey Exaggeration, your rantings are pathetic! Just admit that being a nobody in college ball has forced you"local hicks" to drop to new levels.

this is just proof, you can rationalize anything, Barksdale breaks a old miss rule, he is off the team, Masoli breaks a Oregon rule, he is off the team, but can get on the team. Both have character flaws, no one is held to "true north" princples anymore, it is "win at all cost", maybe would should empty the overcrowded prisons and have them suit up every Saturday for our favorite team.

I say get rid of the NCAA. They're a bunch of communist crybabies. If things don't go their way then it's best for them to throw some school under the bus, but when it comes to a favorite son like DUKE OR NORTH CAROLINA (BASKETBALL) they get free passes and they can get away with you know what.
(Didn't want to offend anyone) but get rid of the BCS and the NCAA, they both suxxck

If all of you would actually read the police reports none of the situations masoli was involved in were him, its just a matter of him being in the wrong place at the wrong time. No one takes in account that this kid graduated college in 3 years, and has never had anything under a 3.0. what the hell do you all expect..NOBODY IS PERFECT!!! AND THE COACH GETS ALL OF MY RESPECT FOR ACTUALLY GIVING THE GUY A CHANCE!!

It may be that Ole Miss detractors will come to believe that Masoli is fine so long as they play like yesterday. Beaten by a 1AA school. Yikes! Any for sale signs in Nutt's front yard this morning?
