The University of Memphis has filed notice of its intent to appeal the NCAA's ruling forcing the school to vacate all 38 wins from the Tigers' historic 2007-08 season that ended in the national championship game.
Memphis officials are upset the NCAA clearing house cleared a player believed to be NBA star Derrick Rose to play. The committee on infractions later ruled the player ineligible after a testing service invalidated his SAT score.
University officials declared their intent to appeal Aug. 20 when the NCAA announced the ruling by the committee on infractions. Memphis had 15 days to file notice of the appeal and after Friday's actions now has 30 days to file arguments why the ineligibility ruling and punishment should be reversed.
