The Rebels, then, have nothing more to lose other than some money if they appeal the recent NCAA rulings.
According to Ben Garrett at the OM Spirit, that’s exactly what they plan on doing.
Ole Miss is appealing the addition of a postseason ban in 2018, as well as the lack of institutional control charge and the unofficial visitor restriction. Ole Miss was handed a three-year probation period, during which time Ole Miss “shall limit all prospective student-athletes in the sport of football to one unofficial campus visit per academic year.” The penalty is considered unprecedented.
Other details of the appeal, according to Garrett, include a focus on the penalty structure. SEC commissioner Greg Sankey is also expected to help, Garrett wrote.
The appeals process could last anywhere from three,-to-six months according to the report.
