Default Masoli/Ole Miss win appe

Jeremiah Masoli eligible at Ole Miss

ESPN.com news services

Ole Miss quarterback Jeremiah Masoli, who was told he wouldn't be eligibile until the 2011 season earlier this week, has been cleared to play immediately, the school announced Friday.

Masoli, who played last season at Oregon, had appealed the ruling. And Friday, the NCAA Division I Subcommittee for Legislative Relief ruled that Masoli can play this season.

Upon filing the appeal, Mississippi athletic director Pete Boone said the decision was "subjective" and expected a successful appeal.

"There is no question in my mind Jeremiah is in the right place," Mississippi coach Houston Nutt said when the appeal was filed. "We're in the people-helping business. I want to plead with that subcommittee. He's done nothing but what he's supposed to do."

Masoli transferred to Mississippi after being kicked off Oregon's team after two run-ins with police.

He pleaded guilty in a January theft at a fraternity house and was suspended for the entire 2010 season by Oregon coach Chip Kelly. Then in June, he was cited for misdemeanor marijuana possession and dismissed from the squad.

The senior has completed his undergraduate degree and enrolled in Mississippi's Parks and Recreation graduate program. The NCAA will sometimes waive a one-year residency requirement for athletes who are transferring but enrolling in a graduate program not offered at the previous school.

In a news release announcing he wouldn't be eligible until 2011, the NCAA said Masoli's request violated the intent of the waiver: "The waiver exists to provide relief to student-athletes who transfer for academic reasons to pursue graduate studies, not to avoid disciplinary measures at the previous university."

Included in Masoli's appeal was the fact he was kicked off only the football team, not the university.

Ole Miss plays Jacksonville State on Saturday.

Oops. That should say appeal in the title.
