After an investigation that has spanned five years, and 11 weeks since representatives met with the Committee on Infractions in Kentucky, Ole Miss may be set to receive their final ruling on the NCAA case this Friday morning.

Chuck Rounsaville with the Ole Miss Spirit and multiple reports say that Ole Miss has received its 24-hour notice of the ruling which will be delivered at 8:30 tomorrow morning, before being made public later in the day.

Of the 21 allegations levied against the program, the University pushed back on nine of them; including the charge of “Lack of institutional control” under then-head coach Hugh Freeze. It remains to be seen how Freeze’s departure will affect the outcome of these charges.

Ole Miss recently finished the 2017 regular season, after playing the entirety of the season under a self-imposed bowl ban which was announced back in February. The self-imposed penalties also included up to $8 million in lost revenue, a double-digit reduction in scholarships and recruiting limits on official visits.

In their public response to the second notice of allegations, Ole Miss detailed instances of attempting to change the culture around the program and build a level of compliance. These steps included disassociating boosters, cutting ties with individuals inside the program and several other instances to attempt to create what they called the “University’s proactive approach to compliance.”

While multiple reports say that the notice is coming, Ole Miss media was unable to confirm them.

Stay tuned for more information in the coming days.
