Jeez, I don’t know what all the twists and turns in Jackie Sherrill’s lawsuit against the NCAA are, but I’d sure like to.
What I am fairly certain of is that when Donald Remy says something like this,
“Rather than continuing what already has been a lengthy legal process, all parties have agreed to confidentially settle the claims in this case without admissions of liability or responsibility. We thank the court and jury for their service and professional participation in the process.”
… Sherrill is probably on firm ground in claiming vindication.

I don’t know all the twists and turns either, but on the surface it seems a risky concession/settlement for the NCAA. Admonishing and issuing punishments for recruiting violations is one of their favorite things. How many coaches have been guilty of crossing those lines (both major and minor) and being named publicly? That certainly could impact their reputation and how they are perceived in the marketplace.
Forced the NCAA To a jury trial and the threat of it all going public.
15 years – that’s what it takes to bring the NCAA attorneys to the wrestling mat.
