Former Mountaineer Pat McAfee had on West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey on The Pat McAfee Show on Thursday to talk about the ruling in the court on Wednesday and how that affects RaeQuan Battle’s future at WVU.
Morrisey outlined the steps he took including sending multiple letters to the NCAA pleading Battle’s case. Then, after the NCAA repeatedly said they are not going to grant Battle a waiver, Morrisey explained the legal action.
“At the end of the day, RaeQuan was denied and the more we started to look at that fact pattern, we saw that some people were approved, some people were denied. Then we start to say, the NCAA is operating on top of a house of cards and they think they’re unaccountable but they too have to comply with the antitrust laws of our country. The competition laws that governs how businesses behave, how individuals can transit and move on to receive the type of employment or athletic opportunities of their choice. What we saw here, the NCAA we thought, were violating the antitrust laws,” Morrisey explained.
