Houston Nutt: Masoli will not lead the “thug” life

Nutt has made it clear that transfer quarterback Jeremiah Masoli, who was suspended at Oregon after a burglary charge, will be carrying a load of baggage for a long time.
Nutt also knows that his reputation is also on the line telling the QB that “I got eyes on me for taking a thug — that’s what people are saying. You’ve got to be able to handle it and be a positive kid.”
