Masoli will be back in California but not in Fresno | Ole Miss Sports

We had a good day in San Francisco. We left the room about 7:30 local time and got back not too long ago.

Before we left I sent an email to Linda Masoli, Jeremiah Masoli’s mother. We emailed a couple of times last year during Masoli’s transition to Ole Miss.

I knew Masoli had caught on in the United Football League, had forgotten with whom, and asked Mrs. Masoli if Jeremiah might be on hand for the Rebels game at Fresno.

He will in fact be playing for the Omaha franchise nearby against Sacramento. Masoli led two touchdown drives in the team’s first game, and 23-13 loss to Virginia, and will be the starter against Sacramento.

“We have 90 tickets sold in our family and friends group seating,” Linda Masoli said. “If Jeremiah wasn’t playing in Sacramento tomorrow, the whole Masoli clan wold go out to Fresno and support Ole Miss.”

I don’t have an info pipeline with Patrick Willis, the former Ole Miss star who is now an All-Pro linebacker with the 49ers, but I doubt he will be in Fresno. The 49ers have a noon central kick at Philadelphia on Sunday.
