CINCINNATI (AP) -Former Cincinnati quarterback Ben Mauk has lost his final appeal to the NCAA for more playing time.
Mauk was turned down Wednesday by the NCAA's reinstatement committee, the last available step in his eligibility appeals process. It was the fifth time that he had been turned down by the NCAA staff or its reinstatement committee.
Mauk contended that injuries cost him playing time at Wake Forest, so he should get one more season at Cincinnati. The committee, which heard his appeal by phone last Thursday, concluded there was no proof that Mauk had to redshirt his freshman season at Wake Forest because of injury.
