I will save the commentary for someone else. This news has been a long time coming as rumors have persisted that this ruling was inevitable.
University of North Carolina football players Devon Ramsay and Michael McAdoo have been ruled permanently ineligible by the NCAA, UNC director of football communications Kevin Best said Monday.
The university said that it will appeal the decision to the Committee on Student-Athlete Reinstatement, an independent panel comprised of representatives from NCAA member colleges, universities and athletic conferences. This committee can reduce or remove the condition. The student-athletes remain ineligible until the conclusion of the appeals process.
“While we respect the decision, the facts of the cases simply do not support permanent ineligibility,” UNC Director of Athletics Dick Baddour said. “We will aggressively appeal and are hopeful the reinstatement committee will reach the same conclusion.”
