While rumors have noted Ole Miss could face a postseason ban, head coach Hugh Freeze is also reportedly a possible target for the NCAA despite his limited involvement in the reported violations.
Ole Miss is facing plenty of "Level 1" violations, considered "a severe breach of conduct," per the released Notice of Allegations. According to the report, there were 28 allegations against the school.

Thanks to those reported violations, ESPN's Chris Low thinks Ole Miss could be handed a postseason ban.
While many of the alleged violations came during the Huge Freeze era, there are a few shocking issues that reportedly occurred even before.
Ole Miss has responded, per the Clarion Ledger:
"There were 28 allegations levied against the school, and athletic director Ross Bjork and chancellor Jeffrey Vitter wrote that "we agree that a violation of NCAA rules occurred; however, for several of those allegations we do not agree on all of the facts. For five of those 27 violations, we believe the violation should be classified different," meaning as a lower level of violation."
And here were the reported self-imposed penalties:
"The self-imposed penalties for football included a disassociation of an organization and four individuals for at least three years; additional rules education for the staff; recruiting suspension for two assistant coaches; a reduction of scholarships and initial grants-in-aid; reductions of recruiting evaluation opportunities, initial and unofficial visits; and a fine of $159,325."
The NCAA's investigation was sparked after text messages detailing improper payment to Laremy Tunsil were posted to his Instagram profile during the NFL Draft.
