In response to an NCAA notice of allegations, Ole Miss self-imposed sanctions on the football on Friday team that included a double-digit reduction in scholarships. Per ESPN:
quote:

In a 154-page response to the NCAA, Ole Miss announced that it had self-imposed the loss of 11 total scholarships in football over a four-year period from 2015-18, including a reduction of three initial scholarships in each of its next three recruiting classes, which would allow the school to sign a maximum of 22 players in each class.

Ole Miss officials also asked the NCAA to delay the school's hearing with the Committee on Infractions so they can have more time to investigate whether Miami Dolphins rookie Laremy Tunsil received additional improper benefits while playing for the Rebels.
Ole Miss was accused of 28 NCAA rules violations in football, according to the NCAA notice of allegations which the University received back in January.

If Ole' Miss doesn't get MAJOR sanctions, it's open season in the SEC.

Fans outside of Ole Miss sure don't like us. If you think your school is all clean, think again. When someone or an entity forces change on the status quo, hate and gnashing ensues. It is human nature to point at others but remember there are three digits pointing back. I guess it is a good thing to be hated.

fella - Ole Miss signed 3 of the top recruits in the nation in a single year, and these guys were all from different states and not part of some package deal. It raised eyebrows then, and now it's confirmed. If Ole Miss is hated, it's because everyone thought they cheated, and now we know for certain.

These infractions are the tip of the iceberg. Ole Miss has been the biggest cheater in college football since Reverend Freeze showed up with his Revival Tent in Oxford. The guy comes in from Arkansas State to a small hick town in North Mississippi and immediately becomes a player for some of the top recruits in the nation. Tunsil becomes a last minute decommit from UGA to go to Ole Miss because he is just dying to become a "Rebel"? He had some childhood dream of waving Confederate Flags and playing in Mississippi? Seriously? That is laughable all by itself. He is just one example. Like the old saying goes, "Money Talks" and it was screaming at Ole Miss. How else do you entice kids to come to Ole Miss? You certainly can't show them the Trophy Case with the 1963 SEC Championship Trophy in it. Do you honestly think that kids were nlown away by Hugh Freeze and his record at Arkansas State? Not just cheating but flagrant cheating and academic fraud. Then Reverend Freeze pops off about his innocense while fully knowing he is lying. What a laugh. What a hypocrite. Ole Miss will and should get reemed by the NCAA and the damn SEC should as well. Academic fixing of grades/ACT scores is just intollerable. The SEC wouldn't allow Valentine to play at LSU but Ole Miss was fixing grades and ACT scores. Hmmm?

I wonder how many ole miss-like mediocre schools out there would be willing to drop their scholarship level from 25 to 22, in trade for top ten recruiting classes? If I were Ole Miss, I'd take that deal in a heartbeat, and keep on paying players.
