Opinions

What’s going on with Masoli, UM and the NCAA?

The breaking news that the NCAA had denied a waiver request that would have allowed transfer quarterback Jeremiah Masoli to play for Ole Miss this fall was so hot that it ended up locking up The Oxford EAGLE web site for a time because of all the hits.

      Let’s remember all affected by Katrina

      Hurricane Katrina hit land – on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi – five years ago Sunday. Editor Don Whitten mentions all of the programs and specials marking the fifth anniversary of the deadly and destructive hurricane, but wonders why it seems like there is usually more mention of New Orleans than of the effect on Mississippi. (August 30, 2010, Page 4A)

          Tablecloth marks time

          Assistant News Editor Anne Pringle recalls years and years of tailgating, whether outside Mississippi Memorial Stadium in Jackson, out of the backs of cars in the Grove at Ole Miss or in the current “tent city” style all over the UM campus as she and other family members get ready for another season of Rebel football – and tailgating. (August 26, 2010, Page 4)

                  ‘Experience’ degrees just another scam

                  A master’s or PhD in just a few weeks? Based on “life experiences.” That’s what Editor Don Whitten was offered a chance at in a recent e-mail message. He looked into degrees by mail and found that it’s a very lucrative business that’s worth little or nothing more than to make the purchaser feel good. (August 23, 2010, Page 4A)
