However now we do welcome on with the breaking news we welcome on the emigrating immigrated to publisher of rebel group dot com again. Ole miss has received its sanctions from the NCAA game. Neil. Good day my man today sir I should say this first what do we lark. What exactly. Well that is still work it'll one's pretty short there's a little bit of disparity and sourcing and that's. And I think it's because the document is so long that people sorting through our armed. Is that the thirteen scholarship number I don't know what that's thirteen including what was already self imposed or that's thirteen additional. And that's quite a discrepancy between ministers changed because of its thirteen additional tart with a put into words just. How long how devastating. Sanctions or we do notes to your old man. That includes. The use of minority Serbs which one additional year to almost be available from postseason twenty and eighteen. Com. Shall causes for being here everyone's. But the ones that will get the most news of course is the one you're shall calls for increased. All don't really know exactly what that means just forget that you know does that mean going forward is back just like go retroactively. There's a two game suspension on top of that to anyone who employ it's whether he has been head coach as an assistant coach anything he will have to sit the first two games of it is perceived him. At that job. Point to walk out five years the shocking want to be Chris kept in which two years while a lot in a Christian campaign. It being suitably so differently. Heard from different people haven't seen this year and obviously that the NCAA. And see why I should say. Specifically. Says that. That. That Leo Lewis was credible as a witness. Which is. Intriguing whole lot of fronts but I'm an out of that period. That's still McChrystal Soviet. So I'm joined now by Danielle McCray Regan the publisher of rebel grove you're just joining us almost has received its NCAA sanctions they do you receive an additional year of a bowl bans of their for the rebels will be an eligible. Four bowl game for next year. All coaches involved in the document most importantly Hugh freeze. Has received a show cause Chris Kiffin who's at Florida Atlantic also currently receives a show calls pouring Farrar former almost assistant received a five year. Show cause. Neil so based on what you're telling me and from my ears were you know working under you and and covering this investigation. It sounds like the NCAA dust at this point has largely gone with what the investigators put forth is that your understanding as well. Yeah you know what you're just seeing it all if you remember this Jeffrey thank you wish you knew that already had in the two not just by this point. About a year ago in December. So not quite a year ago. Right after Christmas we have had a very Cologne source tell us. It would be a two year old man. When he got scholarships. On the show cause is that kind of thing we heard all of those things. Source. I have to go back and compare notes is technically didn't Neely. He made an a only trail put it that way he needed mr. Obama much and so it really does beg the question. Was this predetermined. Why is this. There was to see a lot essentially rubber stamp. Or. Wasn't one of those deals where yes the NCAA the CO. Believe the investigators. They believe Leo Louis they wanted to hold up the immunity. And then he did not believe all of us is defense. And if that's the case then then you know being the only way to Ole miss was going to avoid this day was score they have to. Impugn the the credibility of Leo loose and to call into question the motives of the investigators it appeared that it appears that they failed of that dark. You better report out yesterday I'm saying Greg Bernstein got rid report out history you added a a column right after that added even further detail. Based on what you heard about the committee of infractions. Does it seem like that this indeed was a predetermined outcome in your opinion. It sort of say you couldn't eat it it's impossible not at least entertain that idea. So what happened on the Tuesday this is what you know me I mean. A lot of people that do all you can overall national news from the illness due. You know me pretty well I'll leave it commute. Either decision to attack him I'll I'll accept your judgment. What happened we we talked a lot of people on Tuesday. Met Tuesday in in Covington. We Lewis did not come across well to really wanted that room. Which you know you got to remember this is the that we can't tell you how many times I've said the words this is not. The criminal courtroom here this is not a civil courtroom. This is a room full of academics this is a room full look true believers. And they call it a lot stop. It to the welfare and and and and such of the student actually. And and their allies Leona Lewis was a student athlete. Who. In their eyes it would greatly come to Covington Kentucky to testify. In the middle of this season there was LSU week for Mississippi State. And I think that they gave him every benefit of every doubt. And it is obvious that they deemed him credible. And once that decision was made full list that skirts. You don't whale that could avoid this was only allude to the end not credible and it appears that did not happen. New McRae joining us here on the programming in the publisher rebel grove dot com also you can hear him every single week day on the Oxford Exxon podcast. Check out that podcast on I eighteen stitcher and sound cloud new or SS speed up this week. So make she go and check that out is a fantastic podcast. I cannot recommend it enough to ever won Neil was this the hammer. Yeah this is and I am sure this is. This a major amber it will dramatic ramifications. Inside that program I would presume inside that athletics department. I'll I would assume that wants some of the people who are rivals local biscuit from celebrating. It will sit and shutters down the spine. Shivers down the spine of employee. Power side program out there. This Joost. This is really. It to win it could be NCAA investigator it's important steps. It should scare the living hell out of every program out there which you have a kid. And you lose that kid. You law at the message it sent is that that you can tart on. And the NCAA can grant that that that individual. Immunity and let him sane and that's what happened here this is this is a hamburger is at all by one. Student athlete. One. A kid that. Summer would look a rival program a kid that admitted industrialised. Hearing that he took money. From more than one program including the program that he signed with now that go into another question what happens. With Mississippi State and Leo Lewis called for the nose wheel speech I think. The the enforcement staff is at least obligated. To give some lip service if you will to a investigation into what happened in the Mississippi State's open wheel loose. But you'll what was the greater community so because it could fail those things in an industrialised here in the state people are telling the truth squad. And so long ago his eligibility people detail what is Israel to buildings don't like or not. Actually it's not. Yet the hammer it's absolutely hammer in Oxford it is say that this is. I suspect you will see transfers. I don't know grew out of how many. It begs the question why old Mr. Bush earlier this week in the head coach hiring. How would think that last Bjork is going to have a lot of of explaining to do to blow to rebuild in the trust. There you might still would prominent oldest people. I would think for that compliance staff. For the people who made the decision. Five years ago to go for exemplary cooperation. I would think those people I don't I can't imagine that there are able to walk in the door of their new Yorker. I would I would anticipate people will lose jobs. I think you will be I think the ramifications what will just kick started today there will be this will be felt for a long time. Neil is this. I guess the best route phrase that is was this the NCAA's. Was this kind of they're drawing of the line in the sand and saying that. You know is big the questions are always gonna be compared to you want North Carolina got off a blue blood got off and all miss it is getting hammered. The blood will forgo showed it failed Alabama the real state. It nailed US feet at all the what does it get much more blue than that. I don't know I don't know what it is this isn't a case that. That got started because frankly you could create. More mayor. Arrogance. One man ego. And it just kept feeding it. And he won big. And win that. When would we make guy that we're all frankly most coaches on draft. When that happens we'll play in the console most coaches what Austin drops. It would have been a preemptive strike liked it. All but couldn't do that or chose not to be there. There will now be a nice section of that decision a lot of dissecting the decision going on in Oxford already this week we'll be dissected as well who may gut decision. To double down not too risky inquiries. To double down on its. They double down with their rhetoric. Who make that decision. Whoever made that decision that I have a hard time. And I know people partisan well there was nothing about Laramie consulate the second in a way. No repeat it help you get to pull me. And I didn't I don't understand it was a dirty program. Bet that you would we talked about this back accurate when you were partly out trick some podcasts you talked about the July. The the NCAA very frequently. Hammered it went but the allegations that it could prove. That it thinks it can prove. But it sometimes however you can be allegations that they couldn't group fully packed. There might be a little bit of that today include everybody all Tripoli Parcells I don't know what about the way it works that's not the way it works. That probably fall on deaf Beers along today. And then lastly you we we really appreciate your time he'd been very gracious. Again you can always follow me on Twitter at neo McGrady he is back on Twitter. Your backyard you. Just so much the dark lord Baltimore that would be under efforts but the the dark lord is back he is back what are. But let's let's let's wrap here. Is this for all the mess I mean we we mentioned this is kind of the hammer scenario this is the worst of the worst. If you're old mess and now. How much incentive is there for it to be well we went down so you're coming down listen you kind of get scorched earth and start bringing people down with a. Well. Take for you or me. We were and so are two of athletic department there would be there'd be fodder brimstone everywhere. We are. Who will be are all exceptionally good. What they will do idol though it is difficult for me to believe it is ready to have my item number. I think the site will probably come from attorneys. Bob. Disassociated boosters. People rebel rag and now really gets interesting that this. All that happens rebel. At some point is that the transcripts released from these these hearings moving forward with people will be deposed under close. And eventually there will be. Probably civil trial where these people will indeed be put in a different environment where you don't have the protection of the NCAA. It usually go to different. In the interim I don't know what all missed. I really don't I think I think he. Before you could even be here today to that question the most person could create a site where. Grit their leadership. Moving forward and there's going to be a whole lot of public trust to be rebuilt I said this earlier this week and smoke was people got really angry. It got about Matt Luke beat them up just a diplomat Luke congratulations to look it's always the storms on the strength coach trip that being said. It's pretty obvious that Jeffrey bidder has lost a large portion. I mean not a majority but a large portion. Of the public trust. With some of the RA detonated and the decision the decision not open to Kennedy's decision to move so quickly. On that loop. Well now he's not the only person who lost the public trust and regaining the public trust it's very critical weather. These people can do it or not remains to be seen because they can't it's important. You know when you're there will. Killing John Curry right now Tennessee it just comes a point where people I don't know. And public I would guess that a lot of prominent oldest people there if they are not passed that point or at that point they're close. And then I saw those last question this is act actually the the last question. You take us back to draft night and if you're old mess and you end up getting hurt if you freeze that night. Would they be faced with deep would they be facing today the way that they are facing today if they wouldn't if they would have parting ways with freeze that. So mean that's that's what it all comes down to Neil you're very gracious thank you so much for joining us again you'll crede on Twitter. As always the Oxford Exxon podcast available on IT and stitcher and sound comics she go check it out Neil thank you mom and appreciate it this dirt that are corporate.
