Mauk appeals for one more year of eligibility at Cincinnati
CINCINNATI -- Quarterback Ben Mauk is taking his case for another year of eligibility at Cincinnati back to the NCAA.
At the request of both sides, a judge in Hardin County, Ohio, postponed a hearing scheduled Friday in Mauk's lawsuit against the NCAA. That puts the lawsuit on hold while Mauk submits new information to support his contention that a foot injury prevented him from playing his freshman year.
Mauk's attorney Kevin Murphy said the material will be reviewed by NCAA staff as early as this weekend. Messages for comment were left Thursday with the NCAA.
Mauk led the Bearcats to a No. 17 final ranking last season, after coming back from arm and shoulder injuries suffered in 2006 while playing for Wake Forest.
The NCAA has rejected three earlier appeals.
