Rebel Roundup - 8/2/10 - Do the Haka, Y'all, Cause Masoli's In.

Masoli's Going to Be a Rebel | The Wild Samoan's Website

It looks like I am going to be a Rebel!

The University of Mississippi has accepted my application for graduate school and Coach Nutt has invited me to walk on the football team. It will be official when my transcripts and other paperwork is approved.

I am very excited about this opportunity and very thankful Ole Miss is giving me this chance. I really want to thank Coach Nutt for believing in me.

Yes, I have edited my NCAA 2011 roster.

Snead Cut from Tampa Bay |
I'm a bit mixed up as to how I should feel about this. Naturally, Schadenfreude kicks in and the "damn you Jevan Snead" side of me comes out. But that's only initially. After a while, I start to feel bad for a guy who, love him or hate him, was a pretty important part of the Rebel football program and the Ole Miss "family" (that sounds corny, doesn't it) for the last few seasons.

Moore Will Play for Ole Miss |
We need wide receivers. Darrin Moore of Blinn Community College, the same school which saw now-Auburn Tiger Cameron Newton put up huge numbers in the passing game, will help alleviate that need. At 6'4" and 220 pounds, he's got the necessary size to play a significant role in the SEC and, if anything, he's a warm body with some experience at the collegiate level (he played a very minor role in the UTEP offense his freshman season).

Taylor Hashman Injured
The only source we've got on this right now is Rory McKean's Twitter account, but the story goes that Rebel rising-senior outfielder Taylor Hashman suffered a severe head injury this weekend resulting from a fight off-campus. Keep him in your hearts and minds during his recovery, y'all.
