Thank you for participating in our poll. Here are the results so far:
Ole Miss fans are coming off a high point from last week after winning the Egg Bowl over Mississippi State. Many fans say these sanctions could have short and long-term impacts on the Ole Miss football program.
Some believe the impact of the bowl ban could hurt them in several ways.
First, they don't get the national TV exposure that comes along with the game, and also thousands and thousands of dollars for the university are lost if you don't get to play in the game.
As for the scholarships and other fines, many believe the impact there will impact recruiting, and the quality of players that Ole Miss will be able to attract.
"Reaction so far we have seen for Ole Miss fans is that it's been worse than it actually seems because the details have been so confusing for fans," said Ole Miss Student Collin Ribera. "They think it was another 2 years added on so a 3-year total bowl ban and that's not the case. So the way the fans are reacting as of right now they think this is way out of proportion."
Some Ole Miss fans believe the university's appeal of the sanctions could encourage the NCAA to reduce the severity of their restrictions. Many are concerned that if they don't have a good quality team on the field, ultimately their fan base could also drop off.
Penalties and corrective actions imposed by the panel include:
