McAdoo loses appeal to play in Chapel Hill


DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - A judge has denied a request by a former University of North Carolina football player to be reinstated to the team.
Durham County Superior Court Judge Orlando Hudson on Wednesday denied the request by Michael McAdoo to compel the school to reinstate him, as well as an injunction against the NCAA for sanctioning the school if it brought him back. The decision followed a two-hour hearing.
According to McAdoo's complaint, the NCAA ruled McAdoo ineligible for receiving improper assistance on multiple assignments over several terms. His lawyers argue that the school's Honor Court found him guilty of receiving too much help on a research paper in 2009.
