Ole Miss announced Friday that they will file an appeal on the bowl pan they received from the NCAA Infractions Committee.

The school had a self-imposed bowl ban for 2017, and will now appeal for the chance to play in a bowl -- assuming the Rebels qualify -- in 2018. The postseason ban comes after the Infractions Committee found that Mississippi committed 21 rules violations. The school also received a loss of scholarships, and former coach Hugh Freeze will have to serve a two-game conference ban if he returns to coaching.

Four-star 2018 QB Matt Corral flipped his commitment from Florida to Ole Miss.

In late October, Corral tweeted that "nothing is changing this class," after Jim McElwain was fired. Something changed. Corral will now be the quarterback of the future in Oxford, not Gainesville. Scout.com currently ranks him as the third best quarterback in the country, and 60th overall. Scourting reports rave about his arm strength and ability to improvise. Florida will need to look elsewhere for another future signal-caller.

Ole Miss sophomore WR A.J. Brown announced he is staying at the school rather than transferring.

Brown is not draft-eligible, but it is safe to say a number of Ole Miss players are considering transferring after the program was ruled ineligible for a bowl following the 2018 season. Brown is the school's go-to receiver, recording 75 catches for 1,252 yards and 11 touchdowns this season.

The NCAA’s Committee on Infractions ruled Friday that Ole Miss' postseason ban will go through next season, and the Rebels also received scholarship reductions.

After the dust had finally settled on the NCAA's five-year investigation into Ole Miss, the Rebels stood accused of 15 Level I violations, including the dreaded lack of institutional control. The NCAA also levied financial penalties and a probationary period, but the biggest news here involves scholarships and the 2018 bowl ban, which allows Ole Miss seniors-to-be the opportunity to transfer without restriction. That means that star QB Shea Patterson (a junior-to-be) can't transfer without sitting out a season, but backup QB Jordan Ta'amu, who flashed after Patterson went down this year, can. The NCAA docked Ole Miss an additional 13 scholarships, which will be added to the 11 scholarship cuts the school had previously self-imposed on itself. Ole Miss has a handful of attractive seniors on its roster. You can almost hear the vultures beginning to circle over Oxford.

Ole Miss S Deontay Anderson has been granted a full release from the program.

Anderson will seek immediate eligibility in order to play in 2018. The former four-star recruit claims Ole Miss mislead him on future NCAA sanctions, and his college decisions might have been impacted if he knew the truth. He decided to sit out the 2017 season.

Ole Miss removed the "interim" label from Matt Luke's title and named him head coach.

Ole Miss is in a difficult spot, but Luke held the ship together on short notice when Hugh Freeze was let go following NCAA turmoil this offseason. There will be trickle down and ramifications and sanctions in the coming years, but Luke, the former offensive line coach, is well respected by current and former players. Ole Miss closed their season at 6-6.

Mississippi junior QB Jordan Ta'amu (throat) completed 10-of-22 passes for 247 yards and two scores with one interception in a 31-28 victory over Ole Miss on Thursday.

Ta'amu wasn't at his best, but he didn't have to be with Mississippi State unable to make plays until the game was essentially in hand. Both of his touchdowns were of the long variety; a 77-yard bomb to A.J. Brown, and a 63-yarder to D.K. Metcalf. Ta'amu should be given the chance to battle for the starting job this spring, but he'll have to be more accurate with his short and intermediate throws if he's going to be the signal-caller for the Rebels in 2018.
Nov 23 - 11:29 PM

Mississippi redshirt junior RB Jordan Wilkins ran for 147 yards and two scores in a 31-28 victory over Mississippi State on Thursday.

Almost all of Wilkins yardage came from two plays, but they were two big plays, and Ole Miss won't be complaining. He opened the game with a 22-yard burst that gave the Rebels a 7-0 lead with 14:16 left in the first quarter. He was held in check for the rest of the first half, but then in the fourth quarter, he again gashed the Bulldogs for a 42-yard score that made it 31-13 and essentially put the game away. In a disappointing year for Ole Miss, Wilkins and a few others -- namely AJ Brown -- inspire hope for the 2018 season.
Nov 23 - 11:20 PM

Ole Miss sophomore WR A.J. Brown caught six passes for 167 yards and a touchdown in a 31-28 victory over Mississippi State on Thursday.

This was basically a bowl game for Ole Miss because of self-imposed sanction, and they played like it. Brown was particularly impressive, and often looked like the best player on the field. His touchdown came off a double-move from Jordan Ta'amu from 77 yards out to give the Rebels a 17-6 lead in the middle of the third quarter. His season ends with 1,200 yards receiving and 11 touchdowns, and he'll be among the most hyped wideouts in the SEC in 2018.
Nov 23 - 11:17 PM

Mississippi junior QB Jordan Ta'amu (throat) is "fine" and will play in the season finale Thursday against Mississippi State, interim HC Matt Luke announced.

Ta'amu took a hit near his throat in the first half against Texas A&M last Saturday. After the game, he said he felt some dizziness. That has apparently passed. "Just got treatment, so I feel a lot better," Ta'amu said.
Nov 21 - 2:04 PM

Ole Miss sophomore RB D’Vaughn Pennamon will undergo season-ending surgery on his dislocated knee sometime in the next few weeks.

This according to HC Matt Luke. Pennamon was carted off the field on Saturday against Texas A&M after suffering the injury. Working as a rotational back off the bench, Pennamon had 53 carries for 217 yards and two touchdowns this season. Coming out of high school, Pennamon was ranked as the No. 5 all-purpose back in the country by Rivals.com.

Ole Miss S Deontay Anderson has filed paperwork with the intent to transfer.

He went a step further, claiming Hugh Freeze and others mislead him about potential infractions and Anderson hopes to acquire immediately eligibility for the 2018 season, including SEC programs. Anderson sat out this season when Ole Miss' infractions were released, including th4e school's self-imposed postseason ban.

Ole Miss sophomore WR A.J. Brown caught seven passes for 70 yards with a touchdown in a 31-24 loss on Saturday to Texas A&M.

Brown has now scored in the last three games, and has caught 28 passes over that time frame. His score on Saturday was a 27-yarder from quarterback Jordan Ta'amu that gave the Rebels a 7-0 lead with 12: 29 left in the first quarter. Brown now has over 1,000 yards receiving and has scored ten times on the season. He'll try to add to those numbers while getting Ole Miss bowl-eligible next week against Mississippi State on Thanksgiving.
Nov 19 - 11:39 AM

Mississippi redshirt junior RB Jordan Wilkins carried the ball 19 times for 147 yards and a score in a 31-24 loss to Texas A&M on Saturday.

Wilkins got off to a great start, but was held in check during the second-half for the Rebels. His score was an impressive 64-yard stroll to give the Rebels a 14-7 lead in the middle of the first quarter. Outside of that run, Wilkins had a solid -- if not spectacular -- 18 carries for 83 yards. Ole Miss and the junior tailback will get another chance to qualify for a bowl on Thanksgiving against Mississippi State.
Nov 18 - 10:58 PM

Ole Miss redshirt sophomore WR Van Jefferson (dislocated elbow) will not play on Saturday against Texas A&M.

Jefferson will also probably miss the Thanksgiving Egg Bowl against Mississippi State with the injury as well. He picked up the injury last week against Louisiana Lafayette. Unless Ole Miss wins one of their next two games, it sounds like the sophomore wideout's season will come to a close.
