 CINCINNATI (AP) -The NCAA has turned down Cincinnati quarterback Ben Mauk's latest appeal for another year of eligibility, but granted him one more chance to plead his case before a reinstatement committee.
The NCAA notified Mauk on Monday that it was holding to its position that he used all of his collegiate eligibility - the fourth time it has rejected his request for more playing time. However, Mauk will get a chance to argue his case before the association's reinstatement committee on Thursday, a few hours before the Bearcats' season opener.
Mauk overcame severe arm and shoulder injuries last season, leading the Bearcats to a No. 17 final ranking. He then asked the NCAA for another season, arguing that various injuries had cost him playing time at Wake Forest before he transferred.
He has been turned down every time. The reinstatement committee represents his final chance at reversing the decision through NCAA channels. Mauk will talk to the committee members by phone on Thursday.
