While Ole Miss football fans would really appreciate the NCAA investigation into football be a thing of the past it still isn’t the end for some Rebels.
Most Ole Miss football fans wish the NCAA would simply fade away but it isn’t that simple. The NCAA investigation into Ole Miss has left a trail which can be followed and it really isn’t pretty. It is especially ugly for the NCAA when it includes players from a rival college and includes some of their biggest recruits ever and they both have to face each other in a court of law.
While the NCAA and MSU fans would want you to believe this is a case about a local Oxford business owner/Ole Miss donor it really isn’t. This is all smoke and mirrors for the NCAA, their investigators and a couple of players who barely made it beyond JUCO. To be totally honest neither player would be more than an option on the Ole Miss roster and their names wouldn’t mean anything now if it weren’t for the Rebel Rags and NCAA case.
In Case You Didn’t Know
Ole Miss Rebels
So let’s get started. There is a case which revolves around Rebel Rags and the NCAA. Apparently after all the years Terry Warren has been in business he supposedly decided to let his hand out fall to two of the biggest frauds in college football. The NCAA is trying to facilitate these athletes even now which is pathetic.
Amazing but true that they just happened to wind up going to the same in-state rival college and one Leo Lewis who admitted to soliciting incentives from multiple SEC schools to include LSU and ultimately Miss State where Lewis is a starting LB. This isn’t a pretty site and it gets even uglier as the truth comes out.
But Justice Weighs
Monday Rebel Rags legal counsel Charles Merkel filed documentation stating “The NCAA would like to deprive the Plaintiff of the use of any portion of the voluminous records and documents which will be clearly contrary to the NCAA’s present position, and will clearly reflect the disingenuous nature of the position which it now urges upon the Court. The NCAA seeks to present and argue its motion to dismiss while effectively preventing not only the Plaintiff but also the Court from viewing evidence which is clearly contradictory of the position.”
Thursday morning in Oxford Circuit Court judge Kelly Luther denied the motion of the NCAA legal team to dismiss the case. This will allow Rebel Rags and owner Terry Warren to proceed in their lawsuit against the NCAA. So far the defamation lawsuit is being brought against the NCAA, Lindsey Miller the stepfather of Laremy Tunsil, former MSU and now current Florida head coach Dan Mullen, current MSU players Kobe Jones and Leo Lewis and 11 ‘John Does’.
While I am very familiar with Rebel Rags and Terry Warren I have a difficult time believing Warren was wrong in this. If so we would have heard it way before the NCAA and rouge players came into play. In my own opinion I believe there was a designated witch hunt which was placed on Rebel Rags amid a NCAA investigation and when the investigators couldn’t snag him legally they introduced recruits who signed with a instate rival school.
From the NCAA documents we know at least one recruit, Leo Lewis solicited financial gains from multiple universities and we know for sure was offered money from both LSU and Miss State. There is no way Miss State walks away from this clean. Come on people this is like connect the dots in kindergarten and apparently the NCAA believes we are idiots.
