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. More questions and comments have followed since Tuesday’s new, and Editor Don Whitten gives some answers and comments of his own about the situation. (September 1, 2010, Page 4)

            Abram’s autopsy released

            A coroner says complications of sickle cell trait caused the death of Bennie F. Abram, a Ole Miss football player who collapsed during a Feb. 19 workout.

            Officials released the autopsy results Monday for Abram, a 20-year-old junior from Southaven.

            Lafayette County Coroner Rocky Kennedy said the official cause of death was the sickle cell trait associated with exertion.

            Kennedy said a contributing factor was that Abram had an enlarged heart.

            Kennedy said a person with sickle cell trait inherits one gene for sickle hemoglobin and one for normal hemoglobin. The condition can be asymptomatic. However, Kennedy said Abram knew he had sickle cell trait. (May 18, 2010, Page 10)

                  Another successful Grove Bowl

                  THE GODFREY SHOW – Late in the third quarter of Saturday’s Grove Bowl the realization hit that spring football in the South must be similar to the crackling atmosphere of a ACC tilt between Maryland and NC State in late October: About 25,000 disinterested fans and families lounging in a cavernous, fairly empty football stadium under blue skies and no humidity. See what Oxford Town’s sports columnist Steven Godfrey has to say about the Rebels as they wrap up their spring training. (April 22, 2010, Page 12)

                    Draft this man!

                    THE GODFREY SHOW – This is Dexter McCluster. The waterbug. The scatback. The X-man. The Wild Rebel. The savior of an impostor offense in 2009. He’s also the undersized draft risk, an offensive tweener thought to be too small to withstand life as a primary (or even changeup/third down) tailback in the league and too much of an unknown at receiver. See what Godfrey has to say about Dexter’s draft chances on The Godfrey Show in this week’s Oxford Town. (April 15, 2010, Page 12)
