Balogun's Collegiate Career Is Over

In case you missed it over the weekend, as I did, Oklahoma linebacker Mike Balogun was denied his final appeal by the NCAA's committee on Amateurism Certification, according to his attorney Woody Glass.

Glass told the Star-Telegram.

"I am so disapointed for Mike," Glass said. "His only avenue now is in the courts."

With that statement, Balogun's collegiate career is likely over. Oklahoma is unlikely to challenge the ruling in the courts, considering NCAA can penalize any team who allows a student-athlete to play under a court order and that order is later to be found unjustified.
