Nathan Stanley officially leaves Ole Miss

Nathan Stanley leaves Ole Miss football program | The Daily Mississippian

"Quarterback Nathan Stanley has left the Ole Miss football program, according to a University Spokesman.

“After meeting tonight, Nathan has decided to leave the program,” Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt said through the spokesman. “We wish him the best and are going to help him find a new school. I appreciate all he has done for Ole Miss and the type of student-athlete he has been.”

Stanley, a junior, was competing with three other quarterbacks including junior Randall Mackey, junior college transfer Zack Stoudt and West Virginia transfer Barry Brunetti for the Rebels’ starting quarterback job. Stanley started the spring as the Rebels’ top quarterback, but saw his reps diminish as of late in favor of the other competing signal callers.

Stanley won the Ole Miss quarterback job last spring, but lost the job to Jeremiah Masoli once he arrived from Oregon. In three years with the Rebels, including a red shirt season, Stanley threw for 424 yards and four touchdowns. The Rebels conclude spring drills on Saturday with the Grove Bowl. A starting quarterback hasn't been named.

Stanley really did get a raw deal. If I were him, I would have left too.

We had a QB transfer every year while Nutt was here.

How may QB's have just up and left the Rebels in the past couple of years? First Cotton left, now Stanley. Are there any others? What the hell are you doing Nutt?

We didnt' name him the QB Killa for nothin, Chalk. They're relying on a 5'8" guy that has never started an SEC game, who also has a speech impediment, to lead them to the promised land.

At least Mackey and Danny Nutt can probably converse with one another without any problems.

Yeah and I'm surprised it took him this long especially after busting his ass last year to win the starting job only to lose it to Masoli for simply showing up. He should have left last year. Bad situation.

I never like to just pencil in a "W", but is there going to be anybody to play QB when we visit Oxford this Fall? Or will y'all be running the wishbone?

No disrespect, but I don't think Georgia can pencil in guaranteed W's just yet.

6' even. Also Stanley showed to be completely incompetent this spring and was passed over for people who were playing much better. That's how competition works, and Stanley has never been able to handle pressure.

So you're relying on st-st-st-st-stutterin Steve to take command in the huddle under pressure?

Didn't Stanley win the starting job last season, before he was railroaded by the QB Killa in favor of masoli?

Nice try, but I believe his stats would say that he's understood just fine.

It wasn't a try, Ryan Mallett actually does have a speech impediment, no joke.

Also, if you in fact believe that having a speech impediment means absolutely nothing to how good a QB is or will be (citing Ryan Malletts stats) why would you bring that up?

You're really grasping at straws here. Straws that don't exist, btw.

Nope.

Just pointing out that pointing out useless information is, in fact, pointless. Don't go trying to diss some QB you have never seen play because he has a speech impediment when your most recent QB had a speech impediment and as you say " I believe his stats would say that he's understood just fine".
