About time. He can still appeal but you gotta figure he's run out of opportunities.

I'm sure he's disappointed, but "shocked?" Seriously? I would have been shocked, and will be shocked, if he is allowed to play this season. What makes him think he can plead guilty to burglary, get a season long suspension, and then just waltz into another program and play football right away after being booted for possession of weed. What an idiot. :-S

Found a link

Good luck to him. I know his uncle and wish him the best.
Hope he learned a very valuable and possibly expensive lesson.

What a crock of ----.

Just another instance of a lawyer being able to fight the wording of a rule and not the intent.

Masoli was suspended from Oregon's team. If he hadn't been suspended from Oregon, he would've never transferred to Ole Miss. He worked the system by transferring to Ole Miss because he completed his bachelor's at Oregon and saying "Ohh, yes I totally want to enroll in Ole Miss's basket weaving master's program because Oregon doesn't offer a master's degree in basket weaving."

He worked the system, and he's going to get away with it.


Also, incoming derray post saying don't blame the lawyer for fighting the wording...i'e. it's not the lawyer's fault, it's the guy who wrote the rule. Love ya, dee. :-D I would agree to an extent, the wording needs to be changed, but that doesn't make the ruling 'okay' in my opinion.
