A former Ole Miss football player turned state representative is going to bat for his alma mater against the NCAA.
The bill would fine the NCAA $10,000 for every day past one year that the association does not hold a hearing and hand down a ruling after being informed of the allegations.
Lamar is a former running back at Ole Miss, which is under investigation by the NCAA. Ole Miss was issued a notice of allegations in January 2016 but the case was re-opened after the controversy surrounding Laremy Tunsil on NFL draft night.
According to his Ole Miss football bio, Lamar also attended Mississippi State in 2000, but did not play on the football team.
The Republican from District 8, which represents Lafayette and Tate, has served since 2012.
