Ole Miss gets hit with additional bowl-ban year

Reports: NCAA smacks Ole Miss with additional postseason ban, more scholarship cuts

In three interviews with enforcement officers past year, the sophomore Bulldogs linebacker said that during his recruitment he received free Ole Miss merchandise, free food and cash payments amounting to $10,000 from a prominent Rebels booster.

"While we continue to review the full report, we will vigorously appeal the 2018 postseason ban". That could lead other programs to make a run on Ole Miss' roster, and it also might contribute to players deciding to leave school for the NFL.

In the NCAA's infractions report released today, the COI states that past cases against Ole Miss were considered as "aggravating factors" in their current punishment of the Rebels. Lewis even testified in front of the NCAA committee on infractions. That resulted in a second Notice of Allegations that dealt with recruiting violations that were unrelated to Tunsil but discovered due to the Tunsil incident extending the inquiry.

The hammer came down on Ole Miss on Friday, and Rebels' administrators aren't happy.

"When the facts did not support allegations or we thought the process was unfair, we challenged the NCAA", Bjork said.

NCAA spokeswoman Stacey Osburn wrote in an email that Ole Miss has 15 days to notify the appeals committee of its intent to appeal.

Every coach named in the investigation will receive a show-cause tag by the NCAA.

Former Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze will be suspended for two conference games during the 2018 season if he's employed as a head coach at another school.

The COI expressly agreed that I "promoted an atmosphere of compliance and expected my staff to abide by the rules".

The Rebels will also be on probation for three more years through November 30, 2020 and must pay a financial penalty of about $179,000.

The Rebels, who are accused of 15 Level I violations, including lack of institutional control, appeared in front of the NCAA committee on infractions in Covington, Kentucky, on September 11-12. The committee said it reviewed 53,000 pages of information related to the case. That won't be easy considering the additional postseason ban for the 2018 season. Luke, who played at the school in the mid-90s, was hired as the program's permanent coach on Monday.

The Rebels went 6-6 in 2017 under interim coach Matt Luke, who replaced Freeze when the former Ole Miss coach was let go after the school discovered that he made improper calls from his university-issued cell phone.
