Ole Miss Football Self-Imposes 1-Year Postseason Ban for 2017

(By Mark Schlabach)






Between 2014 and 2016, Mississippi beat Alabama twice and took them right down to the wire a 3rd time (48-43.)

They also made 2 upper-tier bowl appearances in that span, winning the 2015 season Sugar Bowl, and losing the 2014 season Peach Bowl.


2017 has seen them fall on hard times, as they were blown off the field by Alabama (66-3) and have only managed wins over South Alabama, Tennessee-Martin, and Vanderbilt in the 8 games that they have played so far.

Ole Miss IMO got off pretty light in the long run. The post season ban for the 2018 season will hurt, but to lose only 3 additional scholarships is pretty light for what they were accused.

What floors me is the head of the enforcement committee said that he was flabbergasted that they actually found instances that Ole Miss continued to break numerous rules even knowing they were under investigation.

It's crazy how they already have 15 commits and are holding an .87+ average recruit ranking on 247.  Granted, by SEC standards, that's a pretty average recruiting class.  But even in the ACC, a southern talent dominated conference, that average basically puts them with VT and UNC as the second tier of the conference. 

SEC programs get put on probation, and still end up talent wise about as good as any team in another conference.  They are just on a completely difference level.
