The last step of the NCAA examination concerning Ole Miss is finished, and it closed with the program emptying 33 wins over a seven-year time frame because of ineligible players taking an interest in football match-ups. Four successes from 2010, two from 2011, seven in Hugh Freeze’s first year in 2012, seven out of 2013, eight from 2014 and five from 2016 have been cleaned from the record book.
As per 247Sports, the six from 2010-11 under Houston Nutt were because of ACT infringement and the seven from the 2012 season are left over from the players who were ineligible amid the past two seasons. Former offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil’s cooperation in games in 2013-14 caused those to be deleted, however since he was suspended for the initial seven games of the 2015 season before being restored, no amusements from that season are influenced including the Sugar Bowl win over Oklahoma State. Five more were eradicated in 2016 because of unlawful player participation.
“It’s the last part of this process,” Ole Miss athletics director Ross Bjork said. “In a way it’s just a piece of paper because you saw those games.”
In reality we did, and there is no hope – put something aside for Will Smith breaking out the neuralyzer from Men In Black – that can change that. In any case, the all the more stunning advancement is the effect it has on the records of two previous Rebels’ head mentors, Freeze specifically.
Nutt drops from 24-26 (10-22 SEC) in four years at Ole Miss to 19-26 (9-22 SEC). Freeze’s record drops from 39-25 and 19-21 in conference play to 12-25 generally speaking and 6-21 in the SEC. Freeze was rejected in the late spring of 2017 after it was found through the Freedom of Information Act that he made wrong calls from his school-issued cell phone. He was enlisted by Liberty toward the beginning of December 2018.
