    NCAA apparently just hit Ole Miss with a notice of allegations for ~30 rule violations for football, women's basketball, and track and field. No word yet on the breakdown by sport or the severity of the violations. I'm going to go out on a limb and assume a lot of them are football given how well they've been recruiting for the last 4 or 5 years or so. In typical SEC fashion it sounds like they may have been ratted out by multiple SEC schools. They tolerate a certain amount of rule bending, but if you start to be too egregious about it, or if you're cheating over your level in the established pecking order they'll turn you in.

    I'm not really surprised given Ole Miss currently has the #4 ranked recruiting class, which has been raising some eyebrows.

    I'm curious as to the nature of Forde's sources. It's...ummm...interesting timing for this news to leak the last weekend before National Signing Day when Ole Miss just happens to be killing it in recruiting this year.

    Disappointed in lack of generic, dumb SEC jokes thus far.

    Those most responsible for that sorta thing are gearing up for the beer on a Friday afternoon thread. Which leads us to the question, what are you doing here?

    I doubt SEC schooLs would snitch on each other, a la the SWC, which led to their downfall.

    Ole Miss may have fibbed just a tad regarding the severity of the violations in order to not scare off recruits right before signing day. All the sources out of Oxford were claiming the majority of these were for sports other than football, and almost all the football stuff occurred during Houston Nutt's tenure. Apparently the first point is technically true, but 13 of the 28 violations were for football, and the latter was an outright lie. Nine of the 13 violations are on Freeze's staff. No word yet on the severity of the violations.

    I'd be worried if I was them. They aren't Alabama.

    Yep; they'd pretty much be an ideal target for the NCAA to hammer since they're:

    1. Not a blueblood or cash cow
    2. But still a "premier" program by dint of being in the SEC
    That way the NCAA can point their critics to how harsh they were on an SEC school. Meanwhile, bigger programs will continue to skate by.

    A lot of these cases highlight, at least for me, how much college sports would benefit from putting its athletics programs within a trade group in the way professional sports teams are organized. A commissioner and common rules that go beyond recruiting, student-athlete benefits & training standards into the realm of punishments for conduct detrimental to the league seems to be what the public wants and is increasingly demanding. That is not, however, something that the conferences or the NCAA are empowered to do. I'm not sure that people understand that.
