Jones, Jackson dismissed from football team

A brush with the Oxford Police Department cost two Ole Miss players their spot on the team on Monday. Ole Miss football coach Houston Nutt released rising sophomore linebacker Clarence Jackson and rising sophomore defensive end Delvin Jones from the roster after the two were charged with public drunkenness last Friday.
“Clarence Jackson and Delvin Jones have been dismissed from the Ole Miss football program for violation of team rules. I believe in trying to make a difference in a young man’s life, and second chances are a part of that,” Nutt said in a statement released on Monday afternoon. “However, you reach a point where you can’t get through to them, and as a team, we have to move on.” (May 17, 2011, Page 6)
