Fred Glass’s statement from an Indiana release.
“Earlier today, we received notice that our appeal for a reduction in the withholding penalties for Hanner Perea and Peter Jurkin was denied. While we are disappointed with the denial, we are even more disappointed in the case summary as communicated by the NCAA public relations staff. This case continues to be about $185 in Varsity Club contributions over 20 years ago, notwithstanding the NCAA National Office’s troubling references to activities that are permissible or would have been permissible but for the minor donations. Having said that, we accept this as the NCAA’s final word on the case, and we will have no further comment on the matter.”
