Holla playa: Ole Miss signs JUCO returner Philander Moore

Ladies Man

There is one reason and one reason only why we are posting on a JUCO return specialist signing with Ole Miss.

Dude’s name is Philander Moore.  Philander.  Moore.

In a press release issued by the school, the Rebels announced that Philander Moore is officially one of a handful of JUCO transfers who have become Rebels and will be on the roster for the 2011 season. Philander Moore is slated to enroll in classes later this month.

We’re excited about Philander’s athleticism,” UM coach Houston Nutt said in a statement. “He will be able to play numerous positions, and we love his attitude and work ethic. He is a great addition to the Ole Miss family.”

Philander Moore spent the 2010 season at Blinn College, the same junior college Cam Newton attended before moving on and winning a national title — and the Heisman — at Auburn.

OK, I just gotta ask: who the heck names a newborn “Philander”, especially when your last name is Moore?  Heck, who does it regardless of the surname?

    that surprises me that Ole Miss would take a juco. i would think that Ole Miss wouldn’t have to settle for any of those juco people

    And the coach’s name is “Nutt,” that the popped cherry on the top.

    Philander Smith College is in Little Rock. Elijah Pitts, ex-Lombardi era RB & Super Bowl I star played there when they still had a football program.

    goldtooth–the SEC in general is big on juco players, and Ole Miss in particular has been one of the biggest on them.

    As for Philanderer, what a stupid name. Parents are stupid. Here’s another one: Wonderful Terrific Monds II. That’s right, this wasn’t even the first Wonderful Terrific Monds in the family.

    I have Philanders in the family. They were born in 1810 and 1843.

    Perhaps if Mr. Moore if successful it will help me convince my daughters/nieces/cousins to restore the name to its former position in the family.

    /New England Yankees (and still upset that the NY baseball team took our ethnic branding).
