In case you missed this when we posted the story on Monday night, the NCAA (as well as the University of North Carolina) supports the dismissal of the lawsuit that former Tar Heels football player Michael McAdoo (pictured, left) filed against the university, the NCAA and UNC Chancellor Holden Thorp.
You can read that story here.
And, here, you can read the brief that lawyers for the NCAA filed on Monday.
So what does this mean, in the grand scheme? Not too terribly much. As you remember, McAdoo in July 2011 sued the NCAA, UNC and Thorp after the NCAA declared him permanently ineligible. He sought monetary damages and the restoration of his eligibility, after it was stripped because of his involving in UNC’s academic fraud case.
