Ole Miss Sanctions Result in $7 Million in Lost Revenue

Ole Miss postseason ban as a result of NCAA sanctions cost the school close to $7.1 million over the last year.

They Rebels ended up with $10 million less than what a few SEC programs made in the same time frame and largely the result of 13 other schools getting a slice of the Rebels’ cut and a good chunk being held back from the school as part of their infractions penalty.

The SEC’s per-school revenue distributions for fiscal 2018 were impacted by Mississippi’s postseason ban. According SEC spokesman Herb Vincent and the conference’s rules, that meant 50% of the postseason football revenue that would have been designated for Mississippi was distributed to the other 13 schools. The other 50% was placed in escrow and can be distributed to Mississippi if it does not have a major rules violation over a five-year period.
