OLE MISS’ BOONE NOT OPTIMISTIC ON APPEAL

From staff reports

Ole Miss Athletic Director Pete Boone is expecting to hear from the NCAA concerning the school’s most recent appeal concerning penalties against the football program. Ole Miss is seeking relief from those penalties, based on an amended allegation.

“I’m just not optimistic, especially compared to a week ago,” said Boone, who confirmed his expectation of the NCAA response today or Saturday. “I based that on two factors.

“First, it has taken longer than anticipated for the NCAA to reply. Secondly, the conversation I had with them earlier in the week was cold. There wasn’t a lot of response on their part.”
