The NCAA gave two reasons for the denial, according to Ole Miss athletic director Pete Boone.
“First was that Jeremiah would have not been eligible for the 2010 season at his previous institution (Oregon),” said Boone. “The second was the time frame discrepancy between the previous institution and Jeremiah regarding when the institution said they dismissed Jeremiah and when he decided to transfer.”
Boone said the school has appealed the decision.
“We had to get it in by 1 p.m. today in order to hopefully get a ruling by Friday by the subcommittee of appeals,” said Boone.
The latest the subcommittee could rule is one week
