"U of L expanded on that point, saying one student-athlete left the room before any stripteases began; one was shielded by NCAA immunity in exchange for his testimony; and one received benefits below the NCAA's restitution threshold. "Even if these student-athletes were technically ineligible, they would unquestionably have been reinstated," the appeal said. "If nothing else, the (appeals committee) should reverse the COI’s decision to erase these two seasons of play in their entirety." To back that argument, U of L's appeal points to the example of a player who was still competing for the Cards when the allegations were first revealed, in the fall of 2015. U of L said it filed a petition for reinstatement after learning of the misconduct, which was valued at $205. The NCAA restored the student-athlete's eligibility "without any loss of competition," the appeal said, and the player was required to perform 20 hours of community service and attend an on-campus program "about respecting women and the dangers of high risk behavior." The school said it would accept several other penalties, including the NCAA's docking of four men's basketball scholarships over the next four years; a $5,000 institutional fine; and a requirement that prospects on unofficial visits stay off-campus."
