Ole Miss football coach Ed Orgeron was busy Monday. Garry Pack, one of the Rebels' top defensive players, was kicked off the team for the dreaded undisclosed violations of team rules. Four other players were suspended for the same reason (allegedly smoking marijuana). And fullback Quentin Taylor quit the team. The timing of this disciplinary action is crucial. Now the Rebels have a ready-made excuse for their upcoming thrashing at the hands of Auburn on Saturday.
The dismissal of Pack clears the way for him to go back home to Hattiesburg and become an All-CUSA player at Southern Miss.
Good for him. Letting the "undisclosed rule violations" slide are the fastest way to send a program even deeper down the tubes.
"A.. Hawmaha, hawmaha, hawmaha, hawmaha..... Off the team!" Glad he did it and hope it gets the other guys in line.
