    Ole Miss and Death Penalty

    Will they get the Death Penalty and be out of Football for 5 years? West (Left) Coast Sports media says it is an almost certainty!

    Re: Ole Miss and Death Penalty

    They probably deserve it but I don't think ths NCAA will give anyone the death penalty again, but I do think OM will take a hard hit.

    Ole Miss needs a great purging of its boosters...this is not the first time this has happened.

    Re: Ole Miss and Death Penalty

    Is anyone blaming Mississippi State? I usually hear things like that when it comes to Ole Miss.

    Re: Ole Miss and Death Penalty

    Not really State but maybe on of its linebackers.
    https://www.seccountry.com/mississip...aa-allegations

    According to the university’s official response to the NCAA’s notice of allegations, Ole Miss wanted to question Mullen about the testimony of one of his players, LB Leo Lewis. Ole Miss implied in its response that Lewis may have lied to NCAA investigators about receiving impermissible benefits from Ole Miss boosters and that he was trying to hurt the Rebels’ football program with his testimony.

    Here’s an excerpt from the university’s 124-page response. “Student-Athlete 39” refers to Lewis, which means his coach, “College Head Coach 1” in the document, would be Mullen, and “Institution 10” would be Mississippi State.

    “Further, when evidence led to the University requesting that [Institution 10] help with a limited interview of [Student-Athlete 39’s] coach, [College Head Coach 1], [Institution 10] rejected the request outright. Prior to submitting this response, the University sought permission from the Committee to interview both [Student-Athlete 39] and [College Head Coach 1], but the Committee denied that relief.”

    According to Ole Miss, both Mississippi State and the NCAA denied requests to interview Mullen.

    Re: Ole Miss and Death Penalty

    I agree there won't be the death penalty here, especially at an SEC/Power 5 school. That being said, I would be surprised if we don't get major scholarship cuts and an additional year postseason ban on top of what we have already self-imposed. When the NCAA decides to do something, it's about like Hillary's health care commission twenty plus years ago, it's already a predetermined conclusion as to what they are going to do - and it won't be good. The open question is whether Coach Hugh Freeze will get suspended - or even pushed out. All I can say, is I hope not. I don't believe he knew or was personally involved in any of the violations, and I believe he's been the best coach overall at Ole Miss since Johnny Vaught.

    If you don't believe Hugh Freeze knew about any of these violations, I have some ocean front property in Perry County I want to sell you.

    I think Hugh Freeze is a good guy, but good guys make poor choices and get caught up in the competitiveness of their business all the time.

    If somehow he DID NOT know that several members of his staff broke some major rules on several occasions, I think that is even more of a reason for him to be fired. That is the picture of "lack of institutional control".

    Re: Ole Miss and Death Penalty

    I'm going with a loss of 40-50 scholarships over 4 years and a total of 2-3 years post-season ban. The question is does Freeze get a show cause order. I'm thinking he will. The Rebel Rags lawsuit, along with other rumored lawsuits, has the potential to shake this up (in a way that's worse for Ole Miss).

    Oh yeah...first post in years lol

    I thought the same thing. Then I realized it wasn't a short story explaining how I was wrong.

    Just ask Louisville's Basketball Coach, he is probably finished coaching for Life!

    Re: Ole Miss and Death Penalty

    OM is going to get hammered and not in the Grove sense. Freeze is done and the AD should be considering this is his 2nd school in trouble and he's got half the sports on campus involved.
