    Just heard on radio that Jeremiah Masoli has been cleared to play by the NCAA. No doubt many teams on the Ole Miss slate are not to happy that they will now have to face Mr Masoil.

    That's absurd, and I'm an Ole Miss alum.

    What a celebration of college football. The guy's on probation in another state and he is getting a master's in recess.

    I hope he wins the Heisman. I can't wait for the stories about how misunderstood he is.

    Student-athlete! Legislative relief! Hike!

    I think this is the right call.

    He didn't violate any NCAA rules.

    He was eligible to transfer.

    If a school is willing to accept him, that's their business.

    Schools let athletes who are facing charges play all the time.

    May not be fair. He may not end up getting a doctorate or anything, but the loophole is there to be exploited.

    All that said, the SEC in particular is a fucking joke when it comes to "college" and "football." I guess we all knew that already, but this is Case Study #1.

    And, slightly off-topic, but Nick Saban is the pimp daddiest of them all.

    With all of the trees the NCAA kills with its rule book - you would have thought thought this area wouldn't have been as murky.

    Great for Jeremiah, who followed all the rules exactly how he was instructed to in order to play. Good luck to him in his pursuits both academically and on the turf

    There were points last year that Mr Masoli was the best QB in college football. It certainly makes Ole Miss games more interesting.

    Class: Low.

    An obvious subject for a DLB sympathy card.

    I think the initial rejection of Jeremiah Masoli's claim was capricious at best. Plenty of others in the same shoes were granted a release by the NCAA to play immediately.
