Ole Miss quarterback Jeremiah Masoli gives Tigers dual-threat concern

The blog didn't fare so well at the craps tables in Tunica, Miss.. But before we lost our shirt, we filed this game advance about Ole Miss quarterback Jeremiah Masoli and how Auburn will have a tall task trying to contain him tonight. Here's how it starts:
AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn’s defense is well aware of the danger a dual-threat quarterback can present. It sees one of the best in practice every day.

That doesn’t make tonight’s matchup against Ole Miss' Jeremiah Masoli any easier.

The Tigers (8-0, 5-0 SEC) will try to keep their No. 1 Bowl Championship Series ranking at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium by corralling Masoli, a smaller but still-dangerous version of Cam Newton.

“He’s the most athletic quarterback we’ve faced,” Auburn safeties coach Tommy Thigpen said.

Although the Rebels (3-4, 1-3 SEC) have struggled to win this year, it can’t be pinned on Masoli.

The 5-foot-11, 220-pound senior has thrown for 1,260 yards and 10 touchdowns and has added another 400 yards and three touchdowns on the ground in his first year at Ole Miss.

Even Bammer beat Ole' Miss by 13. I look for Auburn to win by more than 20. Say, 42-17.
