Georgia Tech Officially Notifies NCAA Of Intent To Appeal Sanctions
"The institution, not the Enforcement Staff, is responsible for deciding when a student-athlete has compromised his or her eligibility. The Committee determined that Georgia Tech’s decision not to withhold Student-Athlete 1 ultimately proved to be incorrect, but the fact that an institution makes an incorrect decision, or that the Enforcement Staff might disagree with an institution’s decision, does not constitute a failure to meet the conditions and obligations of NCAA membership. Based on the evidence known at the time, Georgia Tech concluded, in good faith, that Student-Athlete 1 should be allowed to compete."
