Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt has three quarterback candidates, all of them transfers, competing to start for the Rebels this season in the place of Jeremiah Masoli
, also a transfer.
There is a pattern there, isn’t there? Nutt said he doesn’t have a long record of taking transfers. He took Masoli, kicked off the Oregon team, to fill a hole last season. Masoli, without the benefit of spring practice and with a very young team, led the Rebels to a 4-8 finish.
This season, the candidates are West Virginia transfer Barry Bernetti, Louisville transfer (via Iowa Western CC) Zack Stoudt, and junior college transfer
