Mike Balogun Decision Expected Today

Attorney: Sooners linebacker Balogun will not likely be re-certified: The Fort Worth Star-Telegram is reporting, NCAA will likely not reinstate Mike Balogun's eligibility according to his attorney. And the Balogun saga will drag out for weeks to come.
"I am confident they will not certify him," attorney Woody Glass said. "If [the staff] was going to certify him, they would have done it a long, long time ago."
However, if Balogun is denied eligibility that's not the final judgement, NCAA's committee on Amateurism Certification could have the final ruling.
"If we cannot agree, we will submit our proposed findings of fact. The two position statements will then be submitted to a fact finding committee that will resolve the factual issues. Once the factual issues are decided, the case gets submitted to the Amateurism Certification Committee for decision."
