Mauk got denied in his final appeal today. Let's hope Grutza can do it.
Took forever for the ruling, but it was expected. Suprising that Mauk wasn't allowed to plead his case, but thats how the cookie crumbles I guess. I heard someone bring up an interesting point the other day on wether the NCAA commitee took longer because of the rumors that Mauk would bring a lawsuit. He obviously doesn't have the time to do that now. Hopefully its not too late for him to have a tryout for an NFL team, but that is probably an even longer shot now than before. I wish Mauk nothing but the best. He seems like a class act and I hope he hangs around UC to mentor the younger guys.
The official release from UC
I received my season tickets today.
Ben Mauk sued the NCAA.
What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
Mauk was just denied again. He has one more chance to plead his case before the NKU game Thursday. I really doubt he has any shot now.
Mauk is grasping at straws. I don't blame him for trying, but its not going to get him anywhere. Can't wait until Thursday though.... got a nice little party planned.
Not so fast says Bill Koch. No decision has been reached:
Interesting. Seems like a pretty big mistake somewhere.No decision on Mauk after all

The NCAA has not ruled on Ben Mauk’s request for a sixth year after all
In the latsst twist in the Mauk saga, Kevin Murphy, the attorney for Mauk who confirmed Monday night that the NCAA ruled against Mauk said this morning that no decision has been reached.
“The call that was made to me last night was a mistake,” Murphy said today.
UC compliance director Maggie McKinley confirmed this morning that the NCAA has yet to reach a decision.
Asked how a mistake like that could have been made, Murphy said only, “right now we’re still in the midst of this, so I need to focus on what we’re doing.
“I’m just concentrating on being positive and I’m grateful that they’re looking at this thing and we still have an excellent opportunity to get a positive ruling from the staff.”
Let it go.

I think what the NCAA is telling Ben (repeatedly now) is that you can tell us your story till you're blue in the face and we'll be sympathetic, but there isn't any documentation of the injury in question.
I just wonder what UC will do if Mauk's appeal does finally work.
Today is the day.
Its not quite Reds Opening Day, but I've got a little extra bounce in my step today. Looking foward to listening in on the radio while watching the Bengals on TV wishing I was just as excited about them. Should be a fun season for UC football.
It's definitely a little hard to keep focused at work today.
SeeinRed, are you in Cincy? It's supposed to be a beautiful night...screw the radio, get to the game!
