“The hearing today the way it looks if certain individuals in the athletic program don't get what they want they will continue to fight so there is the potential whatever the situation is today if the parties keep driving the bus and fighting and don't like it they can go to the appeals committee,” Larry Wilder, Katina Powell’s lawyer said.
Following the meeting, Tom Jurich told the Courier Journal's Jeff Greer the committee asked many questions and that he hopes this matter is behind them soon.
