McNair Appeal

| 8 Comments

Former USC running backs coach Todd McNair had his appeal denied today by the NCAA Division I Infractions Appeals Committee.

Click here for the official NCAA statement.

To be clear, this ruling is separate from USC's pending appeal of its NCAA sanctions.  Per the NCAA release, "This appeal decision is separate from the university's appeal, which has not yet been decided."

Wonderful blog! I definitely love how it’s easy on my eyes and also the data are well written. I am wondering how I might be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your rss feed which need to do the trick! Have a nice day!

Unfortunately not unexpected, although grossly unfair. Probably an unwise move by the NCAA as they did not followed fair standards, nor standards that would be followed in a court of law.

Basically the NCAA in all of their infinite wisdom has decreed that an ex-convict who cannot vote, a clearly photo-shopped meaningless photograph and a 2:15 second call at 1 am in the morning after Reggie declared himself eligible for the draft is more credible evidence than Todd McNair.

I cannot see a judge or jury following the same line of logic in this country unless the trial is held in Tennessee!

This ruling caries significant overtones to the USC appeal. Mr. Haden has stated that we will not sue should are appeal be rejected. That was before the Cam Newton and Ohio State decisions. I find it hard to imagine that we will turn the other chick should we get slapped again by the NCAA.

Should we decide to pursue our court options the sanctions would be stayed most likely by a court ordered injunction in order to limit the possible damages to USC should they eventually win the outcome.

Further, precedence has given USC the distinct advantage. Courts in the past have ruled if the NCAA did not follow its bylaws the sanctions were stayed. The NCAA did not allow SC to be present or cross Michaels. This was in clear violation of the NCAA procedural rules.

It will be interesting to see how this continues. I really hope that USE will FIGHT ON!

The NCAA still can't get their dates correct! In their report they refer to written communication that followed a hearing that took place on November 14th, 2011! That's impossible since it is only May 2011!

I am copying this directly from page 8 of the REPORT OF THE
NATIONAL COLLEGIATE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
DIVISION I INFRACTIONS APPEALS COMMITTEE
April 29, 2011

Alleged Ex Parte Communications.
The former assistant coach argues that the Committee on Infractions[‟s] shar[ing] its draft report with the enforcement staff so the staff could inform the Committee on Infractions of any „factual errors‟ in the report” constituted improper ex parte communication which “create[s] a rebuttable presumption of prejudice.” (Written Appeal Page No. 47.) This issue resulted in additional written communication following this committee‟s November 14, 2011, hearing on the former assistant coach‟s appeal. Specifically,

Should we decide to pursue our court options the sanctions would be stayed most likely by a court ordered injunction in order to limit the possible damages to USC should they eventually win the outcome.

You'll want to look like you know what you're doing and if you say something, say something relevant.

So wonderful!Very worth to read.

We caught up with Tim McDonald at football practice last week before he took off for class
