Ole Miss received the latest report on their NCAA investigation, and based on their reaction, it doesn’t look like things went well.

It was announced on Wednesday that Ole Miss would be self-imposing a one-year postseason ban for the 2017 season. Ole Miss will also be contesting some of the charges against them, which include lack of institutional control.

Ole Miss originally received a notice of allegations back in January of 2016, which detailed almost 30 NCAA violations from all of Ole Miss’ programs. 13 of those violations were tied to the football program, some of which stem from Houston Nutt’s tenure at the school from back in 2012.

Others come from the Laremy Tunsil fiasco that started back in the summer of 2015 when Tunsil was arrested for a domestic dispute. Tunsil was never charged in that dispute, but comments his stepfather made led to more investigation into the program that may have led to unrelated sanctions for Ole Miss.
