FOOTBALL: Jackson has Powe timeline in mind

Jerrell Powe is no respecter of vaction. His story isn’t at least.

I was watching kids swim at the hotel last night, about to settle into my Nelson DeMille novel, when Powe’s attorney, Don Jackson, called to tell me he believes a decision on Powe’s eligibility will be announced within a day or two.

Here’s the Powe update link.

I guess I’m no respecter of vacation either, because when I finally got Pete Boone on his cell he was vacationing in Puerto Vallarta.

Pete had no comment, nor did the SEC, regarding a timetable for a Powe announcement.

The ball is in the SEC’s court on this, and any such announcement would come from them.

I’m about to load up the family van for Philadelphia this morning, and we’ll be back in suburban DC tonight. I’m back at work officially on Monday then leaving late Tuesday or early Wednesday for Media Days in Hoover.

    Everything I’ve heard says he’s gonna be eligable. Have a safe trip PA. Relax all you can, it’s about to be football time.

  2. VA Reb Says:

    Thanks for the update, PA. And have a safe trip back. Looking forward to hearing all about media days. And am hoping that Powe will be playing. He’s definitely worked hard enough to deserve the opportunity.

    Ole Miss Football – 2008 Roster/Bios: Don’t see his name on this list.

  4. tcfan Says:

    He’ll be on there in a matter of days. I expect tomorrow lunch announcement or Friday lunch.

  5. Jimmy Barbee Says:

    Well maybe Ole Miss should close the books on this guy as far as athletic scholorship is concerned. If they have made a commitment to him, then switch him to one of their other scholorship programs and allow him to achieve a quality education. Just, please do not jeopardise the University Athletic Programs to any NCAA scrutiny.

    Jimmy –

    I haved the opposite thing in mind. I don’t beleive the eyes of the NCAA could be looking any closer than they have regarding Powe. He has met with them at his and their own request to do so.

    They gave him their deal and he has responded and responded very well. It is now teh SEC’s decision as he has evidently made his end of teh deal hold up.

    I would think the NCAA would think Ole MIss handeled this thing very well throughout the entire process. Don’t think for a moment UM has not consulted with them to determine his status.

    Thanks, R&BRED, wait and see.

    Daily Journal reports that Powe has apparently been cleared to play.

  10. Jimmy Barbee Says:

    I am sorry, but I do have uneasiness about the Powe situation. Still think that Ole Miss should close this book.

  11. bigdraws Says:

    If they’ve cleared him to play, what is there to worry about? Surely they’ve checked it all out to make sure it is him doing the work. The only thing I could think of would be, if he continues to meet guidelines. Not sure if all the hoopla would be worth one season.

    Football Math Test
    A football coach walked into the locker room before a game, looked over to his star player and said, “I’m not supposed to let you play since you failed math, but we need you in there. So, what I have to do is ask you a math question, and if you get it right, you can play.”

    The player agreed, and the coach looked into his eyes intently and asks, “Okay, now concentrate hard and tell me the answer to this. What is two plus two?”

    The player thought for a moment and then he answered, “4?”

    “Did you say 4?” the coach exclaimed, excited that he got it right.

    At that, all the other players on the team began screaming, “Come on coach, give him another chance!”
