Report: Updated timeline revealed for Mizzou's NCAA bowl ban appeals process
The Missouri Tigers were hit with a one-year bowl ban by the NCAA this offseason, and now the school is vigorously appealing that decision.
As the appeal continues, many are wondering when a decision may be reached. Now, it seems as if a final ruling may not come until the 2019 season is well underway.
Per a report from Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports, Missouri will meet with the NCAA Infractions Appeals Committee this week to make its case once again:
Missouri will appear before the NCAA Infractions Appeals Committee this week to make its case that a controversial bowl ban for this upcoming season should be lifted, sources tell CBS Sports.
No decision will be rendered before mid-August, and the process could extend into September after the beginning of the season, the same sources said. The appeals committee typically takes between 4-8 weeks to issue a decision.
If the process extends to September, the Tigers will have already begun their 2019 season and may be as many as four games in. That seems a bit strange.
However, there’s still a chance the ruling could come this summer, so we’ll see what the NCAA committee decides.
