OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- Mississippi coach Houston Nutt has
dismissed linebacker Clarence Jackson and defensive end Delvin
Jones after the two were arrested and charged with public
drunkenness last week.

Jackson, a 6-foot-1, 235-pound sophomore, was listed as a
starting linebacker after spring practice. Jones, a 6-foot-4,
240-pound sophomore, was listed as a fourth-team defensive end.

It was Jackson's second legal issue in his short career. The
sophomore was arrested last fall after allegedly stealing a
television and other electronic equipment from a building on
campus. He was suspended for the rest of the season.

In a statement, Nutt says he believes in second chances, but
"you reach a point where you can't get through to them, and as a
team, we have to move on."
