Houston Nutt takes a licking

Posted By on Mon, Aug 2, 2010 at 12:27 PM

The haters will love this column by a Sports Illustrated writer on "dirty" coach Houston Nutt.


Nutt's controversial decision to add trouble-plagued Oregon exile Jeremiah Masoli to his roster on the eve of preseason camp is so transparently pathetic in its desperation you wonder how he can make it with a straight face. And yet we should hardly be surprised.

This is, after all, the same man who hired a high school coach he didn't want just to keep a quarterback recruit he wound up losing anyway; turned the practice of oversigning into such a farce that the SEC had to make up a rule just to curb him; and, just last year, welcomed another high-profile castoff with a checkered past only to watch him run afoul of the law again before playing a down with the Rebels.

The so-called "Right Reverend" has voluntarily gone down the wrong path again

.

Ouch. It gets worse, with detailed recall of some lowlights of the Nutt era at the University of Arkansas.
