Jeremiah Masoli Wins Appeal, Immediately Eligible To Play For Ole Miss

In a surprising twist, the NCAA Division I Subcommittee for Legislative Relief has overturned the decision that required Jeremiah Masoli to sit out this season, making the quarterback eligible to play immediately for Ole Miss.

The announcement was made by the school Friday afternoon.

Initially, the NCAA had denied a waiver request from Ole Miss to allow Masoli to play in 2010. According to the NCAA rules, "football graduate student-athletes must receive a waiver in order to compete if they enroll at a university other than where they received their undergraduate degree."
