UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI

The University of Missouri took the next step in the process of appealing overly-harsh sanctions imposed by the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s (NCAA) Committee on Infractions by filing its 64-page appeals brief with the organization’s Appeals Committee Monday afternoon. “We believe that the penalties our programs received were a clear abuse of the Committee’s discretion based upon existing NCAA bylaws. Our staff and legal team have worked tirelessly to research and develop a well-written appeal that accurately reflects our position,” said Mizzou Director of Athletics Jim Sterk.  In its appeals brief, the University argues the following: The penalties handed down were contrary to NCAA case precedent; They were not supported, or appropriate, given the nature of the violations;
They could have a chilling effect on future NCAA enforcement processes. The NCAA Committee on Infractions now has 30 days to respond to Mizzou’s appeal, and following that, an in-person hearing date will be established for Mizzou to appear before the NCAA Appeals Committee. – Read More
