The Ole Miss football program continues to be engulfed by an ongoing NCAA investigation thanks to a plethora of allegations which includes four Level I charges, including the dreaded lack of institutional control.
According to former Ole Miss assistant athletic director Barney Farrar’s attorney, Bruse Loyd, the program could be in a whole heap of trouble.
Loyd stated the program is “as close to a death penalty as you can get.”
From Saturday Down South:
“It is as close to a death penalty as you can get without having that actually happen,” Loyd said. “Coach Farrar has been questioned extensively, in fact, five times by the NCAA about those allegations.
“To use the excuse that everyone else is doing it, that’s just not a good defense. That’s not a good reason. That’s not an acceptable reason. Some of these rules, you wish they weren’t there but the fact of the matter is they are — and they’ve got to be enforced, and they’ve got to be followed. And if you don’t, you’ll find yourself in the position the University of Mississippi athletic department has found itself.”
The school’s response to the NCAA’s notice of allegations could reportedly become public next week.
