NCAA Ruling Will Not Cost Additional Scholarships for UM

Ole Miss

"While we continue to review the full report, we will vigorously appeal the 2018 postseason ban".

The NCAA added an additional bowl ban for 2018, which Ole Miss will appeal. The school met with the NCAA Committe on Infractions in September, and the school is set to release the official findings at some point this morning. He testified before the NCAA infractions committee and is now playing for Mississippi State. Six football staff members and 12 boosters were involved in the violations, which included the provision of approximately $37,000 to prospects through cash payments, the use of automobiles, lodging, transportation, meals and apparel.

"Patterson and Ole Miss executed what is termed a "permission to contact" form on Friday, according to those sources".

The head coach must serve a two-conference-game suspension for the 2018 season should any NCAA school hire him between December 1, 2017, and November 30, 2018. The ruling said that Freeze promoted an atmosphere of rules compliance, but that he failed to monitor his staff. That suspension would go into effect only if Freeze became a head coach again.

Freeze, who was sacked in July for issues not related to the NCAA investigation, has received a show-cause penalty, though the length is unknown.

The Rebels will also be on probation for three more years through November 30, 2020 and must pay a financial penalty of about $179,000.

Vacation of all regular-season and postseason wins in which ineligible student-athletes competed.

The complicated case consisted of 21 alleged violations, including 15 that were Level I, which the NCAA considers the most serious.

Scholarship reductions through 2018-19, as detailed in the public report (self-imposed by the university).

That means Ole Miss and Head Coach Matt Luke will be able to offer 81 scholarships in 2018, down four from the allowed total of 85.

Now that the NCAA has tacked on another year of postseason punishment, players with eligibility covered by the ban (rising Rebel seniors) can transfer to another school without having to sit out for a year.

Freeze resigned over off-field issues - including allegations that he repeatedly made phone calls to escort services - in July.
