    Rumors did have him going to Ole Miss, but Nutt quickly shot that down in a text.

    I would love to see him stay in D-1A and see what he can do, even if it was in a smaller conference. I believe he would destroy other teams if he did end up going to the WAC.

    I'd also like to see him stay in 1A. He's an extremely gifted athlete, but I think he probably benefited a lot from Oregon's system and talent around him. He's not an accurate passer and isn't the best decision maker.

    I feel like if he gets in a system along the lines of the one at Oregon, he'll still do great. It was basically an primary option-first system, but when he did have to make the throw, he'd make it. Look at Dennis Dixon, he was a great quarterback, more accurate then Masoli IMO. I think if he gets a shot at the NFL level, he'll do fine. He might get the change these first 4-6 games so we'll see.

    What if he would jump to another Pac-10 school just so he would have the chance to play Oregon?

    Like you said, Dennis Dixon was a much better passer than Masoli. He was also four inches taller and quite a bit faster and more agile. Masoli is built more like a running back. He's basically a permanent wildcat formation quarterback who can throw the ball marginally. I don't see him fitting into any other Pac-10 offenses as most of them are either pass first or pro-style offenses.

    He's expected to start if he actually makes the team, which I don't see why he wouldn't.
