The Memphis newspaper reports the 45-page brief argues that the penalties and its reasoning are unprecedented and improper.
The school particularly targets the so-called ``strict liability'' standard imposed after the NCAA ruled that Derrick Rose was retroactively ineligible because of an SAT score that was invalidated by the Educational Testing Service in May 2008.
Under ``strict liability,'' the NCAA punished Memphis even though it wasn't accused of being involved in the academic fraud.
