This just in at noon today (Saturday) on JayhawkSlant from KUbanker, a highly reliable source with contacts in the KUAD. His word isn't gold, but it's darn near it.

KUbanker, Today at 11:57am:
The feeling isn't positive within the department he will be cleared. No decision made- but they are not expecting good outcome.
_____________________________________________________________

Not at all what anyone was hoping to hear, and I sure hope the departmental pessimism turns out to be unwarranted.

If it is not, come on down, Precious!

Personally I've shut the door on hope for Silvio... but it is NOT locked yet.

It really is total BS. I really don't understand why they'd be so harsh to a kid who didn't even know anything was going on. It's not a real good way to start out a young life. "Hey we know you didn't do anything wrong but we are going to severely penalize you!" I have tried to let it go and wrap my head around the whole situation but I just can't. It's given me an extremely bad taste in my mouth for the NCAA. Seems totally unjust...especially when Arizona lost Ayton for what one game? Oh well it is what it is. Poor Silvio...

Having seen similar behavior in other fields, I suspect the answer is to prevent future shenanigans by being extra harsh

Let me reemphasize that NO DECISION HAS BEEN MADE YET.

The report is simply a statement of the pessimism of the KUAD.

The appeal could still be approved in Silvio’s favor.
