In a long case being investigated by the NCAA, per multiple sources, Ole Miss has been formally charged because of the violations which occurred within the women's basketball department, football and track and field.

As reported by Yahoo Sports, the university did receive a Notice of Allegations from the NCAA addressing the allegations of about 30 violations among the three sports departments.

Ole Miss Athletic Director Ross Bjork issued a statement:

"As has been the case for the past three years, we are bound by confidentiality and cannot comment publicly on the matter very seriously. However, I can say that I'm confident in how our coaches and staff operate our program, and we take compliance, NCAA and SEC rules very seriously. We are working hard to seek a resolution to this matter."

The NCAA protocol is to allow a university 90 days to respond to the allegations being investigated about them. A Committee of Infractions (COI) can have a hearing date if there happens to be an agreement on the facts of the case. If the case does happen to go to a hearing, both sides will state their sides and the COI will decide the penalties assessed which then will be issued between six and eight weeks following the hearing.

There has been no comments on the allegations from the officials at Mississippi nor SEC spokesman herb Vincent, as reported by Yahoo Sports.
