FOOTBALL: Looks like Palmer

December 12, 2008

Looks like Ashlee Palmer is the starter who may miss the Cotton Bowl because of eligibility issues. Following Friday’s practice Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt said it “doesn’t look good” for Palmer. It’s a shame to see him miss his final game. Look for Patrick Trahan to get a lot more playing time.

FOOTBALL: Judgment Day

December 12, 2008

Fall semester grades are due at the close of business today. Those who didn’t meet requirements will not be eligible to play in the Cotton Bowl Jan. 2.

Houston Nutt’s answer on how many that might be was sort of gray earlier this week. I’m hearing a couple, possibly a starter. These are numbers that are much more normal across college football.

Having about 30 players academically ineligible at the close of the fall semester, as was the case last year, is not normal.
