Georgia Tech Officially Notifies NCAA Of Intent To Appeal Sanctions

When the NCAA announces penalties levied against an institution, that institution has up to 30 days to notify the NCAA that they intend to appeal the sanctions. July 28th marked the thirtieth day for Georgia Tech, and what was hoped for, felt for, is now official. Georgia Tech will appeal the penalties handed down by the NCAA. Tech had vacated the 2009 ACC Championship Game, pay a $100,000 fine, and lost two recruiting on-site visits for the basketball program.

The Georgia Institute of Technology has notified the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) that it will exercise its option to appeal the decision of the NCAA Division I Committee on Infractions announced earlier this month.

While the specific grounds for the appeal are under consideration, Georgia Tech was required to notify the NCAA of its intent by July 28, 2011. The university will have 30 days to file a written appeal.

To successfully win an appeal, the administration has a bit of an uphill climb. They must prove that the penalties handed down are both excessive and inconsistent with similar issues in the past. Georgia Tech will be appealing to a different group of individuals than the NCAA Infractions Committee.
