Probation could derail Masoli-to-Ole Miss talk

Or, more specifically, a probation violation.

When Jeremiah Masoli pleaded guilty to second-degree burglary in March, he was sentenced to, among other things, 12 months probation. Of course, three months later, the quarterback was busted for, among other things, possession of marijuana.

That last act led to his permanent dismissal from Oregon. And could play a role in what his football future holds as now, just as talk of the former Oregon QB enrolling at Ole Miss and playing football for the Rebels in the fall has reached a fever pitch, Masoli’s lawyer has unzipped and is looking for the punch bowl.
