Dan Wolken: Reeling Rebels lose more than a game

“It was a very disappointing loss,” Nutt said. “We’ve just got to keep working, going one step at a time.”

Slumped over at a podium a few minutes after the game had ended, Nutt spoke gently about youth on his offensive line and dropped passes by receivers, a handful of plays that could have made a difference. But his tone was more resigned to the truth that has defined Ole Miss thus far. This season, which seemed so full of promise when Masoli was declared eligible by the NCAA on Sept. 3, might be slipping away

“That one just got away from me, and you can’t have that,” said Masoli, who completed 19-of-35 and threw another late interception. “It’s unacceptable.”
