Now that the NCAA has tacked on another year of postseason punishment, players with eligibility covered by the ban (rising Rebel seniors) can transfer to another school without having to sit out for a year.

The NCAA Committee on Infractions has extended Ole Miss' postseason ban for another year, among other penalties dealing with the 21 allegations against the football program.

The NCAA laid down harsh penalties against the University of MS on Friday, including scholarship reductions and a postseason ban, as part of the investigation into a series of recruiting violations committed by the football program.

Every coach named in the investigation will receive a show-cause tag by the NCAA.

"We are deeply disappointed and angered by the additional penalty of the 2018 post season ban, it is simply not warranted", Athletic Director Ross Bjork. He testified before the NCAA infractions committee and is now playing for Mississippi State.

However, SPD party leadership announced that it would give a formal recommendation on how to proceed to its members by Monday.

All show-cause penalties, which would stick with a coach for a specified period of time, were issued to former Rebel coaches.

Former Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze will be suspended for two conference games during the 2018 season if he's employed as a head coach at another school.

According to the NCAA's official report, the three-year probation period is from December 1, 2018, to November 30, 2020.

The 2017 season wasn't much better for Patterson, following the abrupt exit of Freeze, Patterson was lost for the season in the LSU game.

David Saunders: Eight years, during which "he must not hold any athletically related duties or have contact with prospective student-athletes and their families".

A five-year show-cause order for the assistant coach who facilitated standardized test fraud and living arrangements.

The sanctions also included the "vacation of all regular-season and postseason wins in which ineligible student-athletes competed". He must not hold any athletically related duties during this time.

"Multiple well-placed sources have confirmed to the Ole Miss Spirit today that quarterback Shea Patterson has been granted permission by Ole Miss to talk to other programs about potentially transferring".

"This is now the third case over three decades that has involved the boosters and football program", the panel said in its decision.
