It was reported earlier this evening that Jeremiah Masoli was doing the long-rumored and expected, heading to Ole Miss to play football for the Rebels in 2010.
Speaking to the Jackson Clarion-Ledger, Rebels head coach Houston Nutt said he warned his soon-to-be new quarterback of the public repercussions that would come with enrolling at the school and taking the field with his off-field baggage not too far out of view.
“I got eyes on me for taking a thug — that’s what people are saying,” Nutt told Masoli according to the Clarion-Ledger. “You’ve got to be able to handle it and be a positive kid.”
Nutt also spewed the blahblahblah as should be expected in this situation that, no young man, your Eugene insolence will not be tolerated here in Oxford thank you very much.
“The rules are going to be different for him,” he said. “I told him I have zero tolerance. I have a hairtrigger. I know he knows I will pull the trigger so fast.”
Really, though. What does Nutt have to worry about?
His newest QB was simply a victim of circumstance every single time he was judged to have stepped his toes across a legal line. Most certainly, lightning won’t strike an unfortunate and innocent and football-talented bystander a fourth time, right?
