I don't think I believe he's as innocent as he claims. That story is just a little too convoluted for me to buy into. In my opinion.... he's just trouble.

As much as we Huskies dislike that place in Eugene, I don't wish Masoli on anyone.This young man has been given more chances then one can imagine,and STILL hasn't made the right choices.He's been getting into trouble since high school.When I say trouble,I don't mean public intoxication,DUI's,minor in possessions.I understand these aren't to be taken lightly, but compared to robbery,and or burglary,those pale in comparison.Coach Kelly gave Masoli every opportunity to change his ways and he still found trouble!Do I hope he can choose the right path?Absolutely.Would I bet my Husky season tickets on it?Absolutely NOT!

Before going into Masoli's account of his downfall, as told to SI.com, however, consider a brief recap of what's happened since January:


•He allegedly participated in a burglary of an Eugene fraternity house on Jan. 24, then repeatedly denied - to his coach, to police, to others - involvement in the matter.
•He pleaded guilty to that crime on March 12 in Lane County Circuit Court, and was subsequently suspended for the 2010 football season.
•Told to stay on the straight and narrow if he hoped to potentially don a Ducks uniform again, he was pulled over for traffic violations and a minor drug possession charge in Springfield on June 7, non-criminal charges which led to his dismissal from Oregon's football program and to which he initially pleaded not guilty.
•Then, on July 21, he pleaded guilty in that case, raising questions about whether it constitutes a violation of his burglary conviction, while he attempted to find a place to continue his college career. 

http://blog.oregonlive.com/behindducksbeat/2010/07/jeremiah_masoli_talks_to_sicom.html


Masoli is unwilling to discuss the details of his guilty plea for the robberies in and around San Mateo, Calif., in 2005, which resulted in his expulsion from Serra High and a stint in the juvenile detention center.

http://www.dwightjaynes.com/some-news-about-jeremiah-masolis-background-and-its-not-pretty


Do I beleive in second chances?Absolutely.Has Masoli been given more then a few second chances?Absolutely.At this point,he's not going to prison which is an opportunity in and of itself.Does he deserve to play collegiate athletics at this point?

AU just got a great commitment today,C.J. Uzomah.  We have gotten some really exciting kids lately, and I just can't wait until some of them take the field.

Our first game of the 2010 season is inching closer. I'm making preparations, and planning the menu. I'm also giving the dog a tune-up....


WDE!!!

Nutt's desperate. He has almost nothing on the depth chart at QB. And I do mean nothing. Ray Cotton was his main man, and now he left school. The Rebels are high and dry in the signal calling dept. Nutt had to get somebody that has some kind of experience. Enter Mr. Masoli.....


Masoli is gonna have to take the field blind...and in the SEC at that. 
Our style of football is nothing like what that kid is used to in the PAC 10, and he's got no time to get seasoned. He won't really know the playbook either. He may have a rough year. He'll be lucky if some SEC defense doesn't tear his head off. I don't know much about the Ole Miss O-Line, but I hope they are good.

BBM

Nope. He has one year of eligibility left, and he can use it if Ole Miss has a graduate program that Oregon doesn't offer..... very convenient for him


I'd like Masoli a little bit better if he'd just admit that he was stupid and immature, and made some really bad choices. All I see from him are excuses. For the sake of the other kids on the Rebels team, I hope Masoli will behave and not be a distraction.

PDH - Just for you!  Thought you would enjoy this read about Tommy Tuberville's reception by his team... great read from our paper!


Barfknecht: Tuberville hire a good move, Tech QB says
Don't look for Texas Tech quarterback Steven Sheffield and fired Tech coach Mike Leach to do lunch any time soon.

Not after Sheffield called Leach's ouster “a blessing in disguise'' for the program.

The senior from Austin, Texas, whose nickname is “Sticks,'' openly hurled stones during Big 12 media days at Leach's quirky style.

Leach, known for his single-mindedness toward offense, really did ignore the defense to the point of not even knowing the game plan or major calls at critical times.

“This sounds bad, but they were treated like the step-child,'' Sheffield said, which led to stress between the two units. “They were off on their own and did about whatever they wanted.''

Leach also tried to keep out any NFL influences, to the point of intentionally misleading his players about agents.

“We thought it was illegal to talk to agents,'' Sheffield said. “We had a sign in our facility that there was a $500 reward if anybody saw an agent.''

Schools often tailor some of their teachings and physical conditioning to work done in the NFL, which helps during pro tryouts. Sheffield said that was absent under Leach, leading some Red Raiders to feel they were behind the curve.

Sheffield offered this example:

Leach, for all his self-promoted wizardry, told his quarterbacks nothing more than to throw to the open receiver. Under a new staff, Sheffield said, different reads are in place for different defenses from the first step.

“And our steps must be precise,'' he said. “Stats are kept on those things, and they are shown to players every day.

“NFL scouts look at that stuff. They look at your first step being straight back and not false-stepping. That's stuff we were never coached up on.''

Like many college athletes who see their coach fired, Sheffield originally hoped someone on the staff would be promoted, simply to avoid the hassle of major change.

In this case, it was popular associate head coach Ruffin McNeill, who coached Tech to a win in the Alamo Bowl.

But McNeill went to East Carolina. And the Tech administration went outside for Tommy Tuberville.

Sheffield said it took one meeting with Tuberville to ease his mind.

“The first thing he told us,'' Sheffield said, “is that we're trying to win the Big 12 championship.''

What's the big deal about that? Isn't that what all coaches tell their teams?

Not Leach.

“That was something that was never brought up before,'' Sheffield said. “Championships were not talked about in the Leach Era. It was win one game a week.''

That philosophy got Tech into 10 straight bowls under Leach. But none was a BCS bowl. And the Red Raiders sniffed only one championship, in 2008, and that ended with a 44-point loss to Oklahoma.

It wasn't just Tuberville who got Sheffield motivated for this season.

“When I saw his hires, I just went, ‘Wow!''' he said. “These guys know what they are doing.''

Offensive coordinator Neal Brown is charged with helping pick a No. 1 quarterback between Sheffield and fellow senior Taylor Potts.

Both have starting experience. Both have thrown seven touchdown passes in a game. And both are coming off injuries that knocked them out of spring practice — Sheffield with a broken foot and Potts with a broken index finger on his throwing hand.

Sheffield reinjured the same foot first broken last October by Nebraska's Ndamukong Suh.

“From watching tape,'' Sheffield said, “I can't tell if it's when I planted and he hit me or when I got slammed to the ground.''

Texas Tech struggled at quarterback last season but seemed to get a spark from Sheffield before he was sidelined. Meanwhile, Potts was booed by home fans, and for one week wore the name “Nick'' on the back of his jersey because Leach thought it sounded tougher.

But with a new coach, no one is sure which of the two has the best chance to start.

Sheffield said he and Potts don't hang around together but that both are handling the situation well.

“It would be a waste of time,'' Sheffield said, “if we went around writing hateful messages to each other and slipped them in each other's locker.''

Thanks for the article beans. Tubby seems to have a renewed spirit, and he will be great for TTech. Of course I'm now a Red Raider fan, and I wish Tubby all the best. I can't wait to see them play.


Hey cuz! Great to see you back!

Somebody go drag nonesy away from the Natalee thread and tell her to report in to fan camp.

Who else are we missing?

Great Owl hasn't been around lately either.....

Good news for Cuz and the  Razorbacks. 

Bama lost a starter at supposedly their weakest position - safety.  Had to laugh... on the board I got this from they said Houston Nutt would probably pick up this kid.    Monkey Devil!
