The MIT bag model is used to calculate masses of (R-)baryons, composed of three quarks and a gluino. If the gluino mass is small, the lightest of these, a flavor singlet, could be long-lived or even absolutely stable. The next lightest, the R-nucleons, probably have only weak decays, while all others are likely to decay strongly. This physical picture is not ruled out experimentally.
