Ole Miss may add another quarterback to the roster if former West Virginia quarterback Barry Brunetti chooses to play for the Rebels and coach Houston Nutt. The 6-foot, 200-pound Brunetti, who could enroll at Ole Miss for the spring semester, is expected to decide where he will play in the coming days.

I am passionate about football. The August heat reminds me of long, hot two-a-day practices.
