Jeremiah Masoli sniffing around an SEC school?
It’s been exactly three weeks since Jeremiah Masoli was booted from the Oregon football program following a mini-string of legal incident this offseason.
The quarterback who would’ve entered the upcoming season as a Heisman contender instead was undone by a burglary charge that led to his suspension for the entire 2010 season; then, three months later, the QB was charged with pot possession -- among other things -- and was summarily dismissed from the school.
Now that’s he’s available, Masoli is taking a look at schools who may have an interest in his talent despite the hefty baggage he would bring to a program. And one of the schools he’s reportedly looking at resides in the most powerful football conference in the country.
According to (take grain of salt... NOW!) television reports out of the area, Masoli is “looking at” Mississippi State and visited the Louisiana Tech campus this past weekend.
As far as the former is concerned, there was no word on whether Dan Mullen & Company were making the interest a two-way street or if it’s simply a matter of Masoli having a wish list and the Bulldogs just happen to reside on it. Or if there is even any real meat to this “story”, for that matter.
