Mackey forces Nutt’s hand in QB competition

Houston Nutt cut to the point pretty quick following Ole Miss’ football practice on Tuesday.

Flanked by reporters, the Ole Miss head coach skipped his customary opening statement and announced that Randall Mackey will be suspended for the Rebels’ season opener against BYU on Sept. 3 because of his recent arrest.

In Mackey’s place, Nutt said sophomore Barry Brunetti will start and junior Zack Stoudt will also see playing time.

Talking to reporters, it was obvious that Nutt was disappointed Mackey forced his hand in regard to the quarterback competition.
