Rodney Purvis Remains Unfreed

Andy Katz checked in with Mark Gottfried for a status update on Rodney Purvis, and the news is that there is no news. NC State submitted another appeal on Thursday, and Gottfried hopes there will be a resolution some time next week.

"Hopefully it's going to be done next week, and he'll be eligible to play,'' NC State coach Mark Gottfried said. "That's the right thing to do and the right thing to do in this particular case.''

I don't really understand the purpose of submitting another appeal...did the NCAA forget about the first one, or is this an update with some additional information? Maybe the idea is just to nag them until they actually reach a decision one way or the other.

Gottfried says that NC State has been working with Upper Room for months on the problem and he "can't even begin" to add up the hours they've had to spend on this case. In the meantime, every tweet Rodney Purvis sends into the tubes will continue to be overanalyzed. He was in uniform today for team photos.
