Devon Ramsay's NCAA appeal on hold
Posted December 15, 2010
University of North Carolina running back Devon Ramsay will not have his NCAA appeal as scheduled for Thursday, December 16. The University announced that the appeal has been postponed.
“We asked the NCAA to postpone the appeal hearing for Devon, which was originally scheduled for Thursday," UNC Director of Athletics Dick Baddour said in a statement. "We decided it was in his best interest to allow more time to develop the case in support of him. We do not know the date of his rescheduled appeal at this time.”
Ramsay played in 4 games this season but was then held out the rest of the season as the NCAA investigated the football program.
The junior was ruled permanently ineligible by the NCAA on November 15. “While we respect the decision, the facts of the cases simply do not support permanent ineligibility,” Baddour said at the time of the suspension of Ramsay and Michael McAdoo.
McAdoo, a junior defensive end, was also ruled permanently ineligible by the NCAA. His appeal was heard by the NCAA reinstatement committee on December 14 but he has yet to hear a ruling.
