UNC just announced this afternoon that Tez Walker's eligibility was denied by the NCAA and the college football world is not happy. UNC head coach Mack Brown released a statement via the team's X profile blasting the NCAA and calling for North Carolina fans to continue their support of Walker

“As has clearly been documented, Tez should be eligible for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the mental health issues he's faced during his time in college. And with this decision, the NCAA has placed an unnecessary burden on him. He's had a rough go of it and this will surely only make it worse.”

“Shame on you, NCAA. SHAME ON YOU,” Brown added at the end of his letter.
