Jeremiah Masoli's bid to play in 2010 for the Mississippi Rebels has been denied by the NCAA.
Masoli was hoping to take advantage of an NCAA rule that sometimes allows student-athletes to be immediately eligible upon transfer if they are entering a graduate program not offered by their previous school.
He was forced to leave Oregon after several run-ins with the law and is now enrolled in Mississippi's Parks and Recreation graduate program.
However, with the ruling in hand, the former Oregon standout now won't be eligible to play until 2011. Ole Miss officials say they plan to appeal the ruling within the next week.
As a result, the Rebels are down to two quarterbacks: Likely starter Nathan Stanley and junior college transfer Randall Mackey.
