Another week is in the books, and the NCAA investigation into Ole Miss’ football, women’s basketball and track and field programs is still at the forefront of conversation. A word of caution to all Rebels fans out there is to be patient because this will be lingering for the next couple months until the final punishments are finally handed out.
Here are four things to know:
- Speaking of the NCAA investigation, a former Ole Miss assistant coach, who has been at Texas the past couple of seasons, parted ways with the Longhorns because of implications in the investigation.
- When the NFL combine kicks off in less than two weeks, six former Ole Miss players will be among the participants looking to improve their draft status.
- Another former Rebel is making strides in life after football, but this former signal caller is working his way up the football coaching tree, as he accepted a job in his home state this week.
- Former Ole Miss great Eli Manning and his brother, Peyton Manning, have always been known to make fun of each other, and the older of the two brothers didn’t shy away from poking fun at the New York Giants quarterback on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon.
