NCAA rejects Tulsa's appeal on Burnham
May 1, 2013
By The Associated Press
TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The NCAA has denied Tulsa's appeal seeking a sixth year of eligibility for Bryan Burnham, the team's leading receiver two seasons ago.
Burnham was seeking a waiver to play next season for the Golden Hurricane after sustaining a season-ending knee injury in last year's opener against Iowa State. He also missed the 2008 season due to an illness.
The NCAA had previously rejected Burnham's request for a sixth season of eligibility, and an appeals committee rejected his appeal Wednesday.
Burnham led Tulsa with 54 catches for 850 yards and nine touchdowns in 2011.
Coach Bill Blankenship says Tulsa is ``extremely disappointed'' for Burnham, who had been preparing to play next season.
Burnham says he's ``ready to move on now.''
