Armour to Rejoin Team

You do not see this happen too often in my opinion. Coach Ed Orgeron has allowed LaMark Armour to rejoin the team following a year in which he was suspended for most of the season. To my knowledge he is the only one of a handful of players that was suspended to be allowed back on the team. If Orgeron has allowed him back, he obviously paid his dues both in the classroom and in off the field workouts.

OXFORD, Miss. - Ole Miss head football coach Ed Orgeron announced Monday that sophomore defensive lineman LaMark Armour will be rejoining the Rebel football program.

Armour, a 6-2, 255-pounder from Nashville, Tenn., was “indefinitely” suspended by Orgeron last September for “violation of team rules.”

“We are going to reinstate LaMark Armour as a member of our football team,” Orgeron said.

Armour, who appeared in two games as a true freshman in 2005, did not see any action last season prior to his suspension and was redshirted. He will still have three years of eligibility remaining
