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: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.
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.
