08:20 AM ET 10.04 | The oversigning debate earned a new entry Monday. Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt said his inability to sign Auburn cornerback Jermaine Whitehead offers a good example of why he opposes the SEC's new rule limiting 25 signees per class. The limit had briefly been 28 players and was changed due to concerns about oversigning. "Gene Chizik came in and stole my man Jermaine Whitehead," Nutt said during a speech [Monday] at the Monday Morning Quarterback Club in Birmingham. "I asked Gene, 'Now Gene, you didn't even have a home visit.' It must be nice to hold up that crystal ball." ... Nutt, who is often criticized for oversigning, said Whitehead was committed to Ole Miss for a month-and-a-half up to the final week before Signing Day.

If Nutt really wanted him, maybe he should have offered over someone else. It's the rule, deal with it.

sCAM Newton will suffer the same fate as Reggie Bush. Heisman Trophy winner returning the hardware after the NCAA wipes the egg off its face.

Exactly, except 2010 was Miss St instead of Ole Miss and the going rate for a CB may be less than a buck 80.

Auburn likes pickin' on the Mississippi boys.

For those of you with Dyslexia, it is "Nutt: Chizik stole my man" not the man Chizik stole my Nutt.
