CINCINNATI (AP) -Quarterback Ben Mauk has lost his latest appeal to the NCAA for another year of eligibility to play for Cincinnati.
After a couple days of uncertainty, the NCAA informed Cincinnati on Wednesday that Mauk had been turned down again.
The case fell into confusion this week. Mauk's lawyer was told by an NCAA representative on Monday night that the appeal had been turned down, only to get another call from the NCAA a day later saying the staff was still considering the case.
Mauk led the Bearcats to 10 wins and a No. 17 final ranking last season, when he came back from serious shoulder and arm injuries. He appealed for another season on grounds that injuries had sidelined while he was at Wake Forest. He's been turned down four times.
