Ole Miss is facing plenty of “Level 1” violations, considered “a severe breach of conduct,” per the released Notice of Allegations:
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.”Advertisement
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.
