Finding Jeremiah Masoli’s niche in the SEC

There’s not much recent precedent for those kinds of numbers in the SEC, the least offensively-oriented of the major conferences last year. But there is precedent for decent defenses bottling up Masoli, whose track record tends to be all-or-nothing. Against the two BCS-bound defenses the Ducks faced in ’09, Boise State to kick off the schedule and Ohio State to close it in the Rose Bowl, the result was largely nothing. And Masoli has never put much of a scare into respectable defenses (here, we’ll define “respectable” as “among the top half of the country”) with his arm – compared with other SEC quarterbacks we have a little data on, Masoli’s niche at Ole Miss is clearly going to be as “the scrambler”.
