Ole Miss chancellor Jeffrey Vitter and athletic director Ross Bjork announce the school will appeal the two-year postseason ban. Ole Miss has 15 days to file the appeal, and the process could take three to six months.
The postseason ban for 2018 also opens the door for player transfers, and upcoming seniors in the football program will be able to transfer without a penalty for the upcoming season.
Players who will not be upcoming seniors will still have to file a waiver to the NCAA to request a transfer, and would need the NCAA’s approval in order to successfully transfer without penalty.
As of Friday night, no player has announced they will be transferring.
