Eight PSU Lettermans Sent an Intent to Appeal to NCAA

[ESPN] A group of former Penn State players, led by former quarterback Michael Robinson, has notified the NCAA that it intends to appeal the harsh sanctions placed upon the football program for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

Paul V. Kelly, an attorney for former Nittany Lions quarterback Michael Robinson and seven others who played for Penn State at some point during the 14 seasons in which the NCAA vacated victories, sent an intent to appeal letter (PDF) to the NCAA dated Aug. 7.

A Penn State trustee has sent a similar letter to the NCAA, though the governing body for college sports has said the sanctions are not subject to appeal.

The group is challenging the consent decree Penn State President Rodney Erickson signed when the school accepted the penalties last month, as well as the findings in the Freeh report, which the NCAA used instead of doing its own investigation

M-Rob wants his victories back!

Ps. No chance they come close to winning any kind of an appeal, right?
