Well, the floorboard gun was going to be tough to hit Robinson on with a "stolen firearm." First, unless he said it was his you have problems over which one "owned" it. Second, you might not be able to prove that either one even knew it was there. Third, not knowing an item is stolen is a defense to...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (5)

re: With Freeze asking for depo to be sealed, will the NCAA wait? - Blawdawg on 5/28/16 at 7:51 pm
I'm doubtful that the multiple allegations against Harris will be magically moved down to level 2 status. Harris said he didn't know about the boosters and the NCAA didn't believe him. Arguing, "no, believe him" isn't an argument that I'd project as a winner. That's arguing that the NCAA has their f...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Saunders not turned in by olé miss - Blawdawg on 5/28/16 at 6:57 pm
I only skimmed the Saunder's portion of the NOA and response since OM agrees to every allegation made against him and and school on the issue. But, it is all framed as OM had no clue he did that and it was totally rogue. Saunder's was getting "his guys" in and providing "his recruits" benefits. That...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Their law school is quite good. It doesn't compare with Vandy, UGA, Bama or Florida, but most of the lawyers from that school end up in Mississippi. Being the best law school in Mississippi they are kind of the cream of the crop unless lawyers come INTO MS from other states or schools. MS has nice p...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: With Freeze asking for depo to be sealed, will the NCAA wait? - Blawdawg on 5/28/16 at 6:47 pm
The NCAA got in trouble (internally) before for trying to use civil depositions for rules enforcement. I don't expect that they are purposely trying to go down that road ever again. That being said if they are informed that he has testified under oath in a way that is substantially different from h...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
Was OM jerking our chain before signing day? - Blawdawg on 5/28/16 at 4:10 pm
I used the interwebs to look back in time to January 2015: Pre signing day leak on the NOA: "One Ole Miss source tells Steven Godfrey they believe only five of the 32 are alleged football violations, and that coaches are "confident" allegations related to the current staff are secondary violati...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)

How big are each of Ole Miss's graduating classes coming NCAA isn't a fan of penalties that don't really matter. It was one of the reasons I thought Bama's penalties were raised in 2003. We took away 7 in year one, but had a small graduating class and we could survive signing 18. We proposed 21 in y...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: 2003 Alabama history - Bama self imposes loss of 15 scholarships - Blawdawg on 5/28/16 at 3:46 pm
I like to see where some people took this. What I was getting at more than anything is we prepared for 15, we were OK with 15, local media said the 15 might stick, and the NCAA made it cut deeper, plus the bowl bans. I've never studied other self imposed sanctions to know the average number that...

Actually there was no LOIC in this round. Just failure to monitor RE Tunsil situation and other violations by individuals with no direct failures by the AD (Harris, Kiffin, Saunder's, Vaughn, Nix). The Tunsil one was the only one that brings the system into the discussion. Then again didn't we g...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

It's theoretically possible that 3 coaches get show causes out of this. Probably not Nix or Kiffin's, but Harris is done unless the NCAA reclassified all his allegations. OM admits he's guilty, they just support him as being sloppy and lazy instead of being in business with boosters to recruit. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Technically speaking the Saunder's stuff isn't the absolute worst violation since they are of the same level as alleged violations of Harris and in the "failure to monitor" Tunsil's agent/booster/car situation. If these were 3 separate infractions cases over 10 years OM might have been better of...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
Did OM only offer 84 Scholarships this past year? - Blawdawg on 5/28/16 at 4:47 am
They claim a reduction to 84 for 2015 is part of their penalties. Guess they planned on these self imposed penalties for a good long while since that was locked in stone August 2015. Finally saw the breakdown. 84 total last year, 83 this upcoming season, 81 for 2017 and 2018 and then back to 85 ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

I wouldn't be surprised to see a 2 game suspension (15% season) for Freeze. Yes, he is accused of nothing, but one of the stated goals of the new penalty system was to make head coaches more accountable for the actions of their staff/assistant coaches. That is supposed to motivate head coaches to pr...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

The self imposed penalties are in part based on OM's response that some of the Level 1 penalties should be level 2 (including all of current coach Harris' violations) and some of the level 2 should be level 3 (Including all of current coach Kiffin's violations) Also, they dispute the serious Lev...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
