When Laremy Tunsil’s history with bongs and loans came out during April’s NFL Draft, it was just about a guarantee that Tunsil’s name would come up in any wrongdoing done by the Ole Miss football program.

That notion was confirmed Friday when the NCAA released a Notice of Allegations against Ole Miss. The report from the NCAA included eight Level I violations committed by the the football program. The violations range from fraudulent ACT scores to boosters providing impermissible benefits to athletes. The report also shows a number of ways that Tunsil violated the rules during his time at Ole Miss.

The violations date back to Tunsil’s official visit to campus in 2013, where Chris Kiffin, Ole Miss recruiting director and brother of college football favorite Lane Kiffin, dished out more than $1,000 in lodging and food to Tunsil and his traveling companions.

In August 2014, the beginning of Tunsil’s sophomore season, Tunsil’s father allegedly accepted $800 from a booster. At the same time, Tunsil brought his car to an Oxford dealership (one that apparently has Ole Miss connections). The dealer took Tunsil’s 2002 Chevy Impala and lent him a 2012 Nissan Titan. Tunsil eventually used four different cars lent to him from the dealership. He also allegedly bought a Dodge Challenger from the dealership but never even paid the $3,000 down payment.

Since the release of the report, Ole Miss claims that it took “corrective action” following Tunsil’s acquisition of the Nissan Titan. However, Tunsil managed to get the other three loaners following the school’s action. Funny how that works.

However damaging the allegations against Tunsil might be, this doesn’t appear to be the end. Pat Forde says in his article that Tunsil’s draft-night debacle wasn’t even a part of Friday’s report. This means that while Tunsil plays his rookie season with the Miami Dolphins, the Rebels will be playing the 2016 season under the cloud of a major NCAA investigation.

That punishment looks to be just the beginning of a long line for Ole Miss. It looks like football coach Hugh Freeze finally got his wish.
