Ole Miss Football Self-Imposes Post-Season Ban After Updated Charges From NCAA


Ole Miss has received an updated notice of allegations from the NCAA and as a result the school has decided to self-impose a one-year postseason ban, according to Bruce Feldman.

Feldman’s string of tweets on the matter tells the entire story:

The “lack of institutional control” charge is huge, and likely means the school is headed for a rough collision with the NCAA Committee on Infractions. Whatever is in that updated notice of allegations has to be substantial for a program to self-impose a postseason ban.

Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze defended himself immediately:

Well Hugh, clearly not if you got slapped down this hard and your bosses went ahead and self-imposed penalties.
