Rebels Powe Ineligible...Again

It's been 2-years since former South Panola High School star Jerrell Powe first tried to become academically eligible and play football at Ole Miss..

After Tuesday's NCAA Ruling, he'll have to keep on trying.

Once again, the NCAA has ruled Powe ineligible..but, offered a small ray of hope.

While not accepting some of Powe's academic credentials requested last week, Powe WILL get athletically related financial aid to attend classes.

He WON'T be allowed to practice or PLAY until he meets the NCAA's and Ole Miss' academic requirements.

The earliest he could play is 2008.

Ole Miss is appealing the decision not to accept powe's course work, and also appealing the ruling keeping him from practicing or playing.

The Saga continues.
