NCAA Denies Former Sooner Justin McCay's Request

NCAA denies McCay eligibility waiver request: The Kansas football program received some bad news on Friday, as sophomore receiver Justin McCay had his eligibility waiver request denied by the NCAA. KU plans to appeal the decision. McCay, a graduate of Bishop Miege, had appealed for a hardship waiver that would have allowed him to be immediately eligible for the 2012 season after transferring from Oklahoma in January. According to KU, the NCAA informed the school that it could not approve KU’s request for a waiver based on the guidelines the staff is required to follow. However, the NCAA recommended that KU go to the subcommittee for legislative relief for an appeal. The subcommittee is comprised of representatives from conferences and universities from around the country and has the authority to ignore certain waiver guidelines. “We are disappointed in the NCAA staff’s decision,” KU coach Charlie Weis said in a statement.
