As more news continues to break regarding Houston Nutt’s lawsuit against Ole Miss, the Rebels are also facing off against the NCAA.

On Wednesday evening, the NCAA Division I Committee on Infractions (COI) set a date for the Rebels’ hearing, which will determine the penalties for 21 alleged rules violations committed by the football team.

The case will be heard on Monday, Sept. 11, at the Embassy Suites in Covington, Kentucky, according to the NCAA’s letter to Ole Miss.

The COI has as many as three days to hear the case and the hearings are closed to the public.

Ole Miss has already self-imposed scholarship reductions and a one-year bowl ban as a result of the allegations, so it remains to be seen if the COI will impose any further penalties on the program.

The good news is that we should know what the committee decides by mid- to late-September, if all goes according to schedule.
