So we are to believe that several years ago Ole Miss, who was near the bottom of the SEC, suddenly was able to recruit the top players in the nation at several positions and bring in one of the top classes?

RIIIIIGGGHHT!

So, to be fair here after reading more about it, the ruling simply allows them to return to a bowl in 2019 & removes the restriction on official visits. The vast majority of the NCAA's findings of lack of institutional control & Level 1 violations was upheld.

Haven't had time to read the link yet, but from what you said the punishments went away but the ruling was upheld. Sounds like a "so what?" to me.

I can't remember the last time they had any real punishment stick.

Even when OU got busted in the Big Red sports and Imports scandal, the NCAA quietly backed down on appeal.

Ole Miss self-imposed a bowl ban last season & limited official visits for last season & this one. The committee tacked on a bowl ban for this season, as well.
