Amidst an unfavorable ruling, Ole Miss’ Masoli stands in better light
Jeremiah Masoli, dressed in an Ole Miss collared shirt,
stepped to the podium inside the team meeting room of Ole Miss indoor practice
facility Tuesday with dampened spirits.
In monotone, he said all the right things and put his faith
in an NCAA Subcommittee for Legislative Relief, an
independent group comprised of representatives from NCAA member colleges,
universities and athletic conferences.
How could he not? Even before the NCAA denied his residence
waiver request just days before his team was set to open its season against
Jacksonville State, Masoli had spent the better part of three months repairing
a tarnished image following his dismissal from the Oregon football team.
Tuesday was standard operating procedure.
