Default NCAA denies Mauk's request for another year...

NCAA rejects Mauk's request for another year of eligibility

The NCAA turned down Cincinnati Bearcats quarterback Ben Mauk's request for another season of eligibility

Under NCAA rules, a player has four years of sports eligibility that must be used up within a five-year window. Mauk took a redshirt season as a freshman, then missed almost all the 2006 season because of injury.

He asked the NCAA to give him a sixth year to exhaust his eligibility, arguing that he was forced take the redshirt year as a freshman. The NCAA declined.

Associated Press



This is bad news...no doubt.

However, I don't think it will be as bad as some may think. QB Dustin Grutza is returning for his senior season. He was the starter in 2006 and did a helluva job. Plus the Bearcats have Notre Dame transfer Demetrius Jones who has some skills.

It would have been nice to get Mauk back for another year but I don't see this having too much of a negative impact on the squad.
