Oregon Ducks Starting QB Booted from Team

6/9/2010 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0609_masoli_BN_Getty_01Jeremiah Masoli -- who was once regarded as one of the best quarterbacks in the country -- has just been officially kicked off the University of Oregon football team days after the 21-year-old had another brush with the law.

The U of O just released a statement explaining, "Masoli has been dismissed from the school’s football program for a failure to adhere to obligations previously outlined by head football coach Chip Kelly."

Earlier this week, Masoli was cited for marijuana possession following a traffic stop in Oregon.

Masoli had already been suspended for the upcoming season after pleading guilty to burglarizing a frat house back in January.

I'm a crazy person...    

"Good luck"?? This guy is PRIME TIME NFL material!! I'll be shocked if pro teams aren't jockeying for position with this guy RIGHT NOW! You can coordinate dog fights and torture the losers (Michael Vick) or even kill somebody (Ray Lewis) and still have a career as a professional football player. You're not allowed to be black and play ball without being a criminal... Come ON people!!

I wish in junior colleges and universities that use these talented kids that may come from a background where it was rougher then most some kind of guidance would be given (that most take for granted) so they have a better chance of making it. It would be a win/win for all.

I sure want to comment, but as a buckeye fan, it's to scary to say a word, except "there, but for the grace of god...."

It's not like he entered a Top Pot Donuts at 3 a.m. for some maple bars.

Masoli had no chance to make it to the NFL anyways.



At least Ryan Leaf and Lawrence Phillips got drafted and paid.

Masoli, you are an idiot! Not only have you let Duck Fans down, but you've also let down your teammates who at one time were probably your friends. Way to flush opportunity down the toilet.
