More insight from attorney Tom Mars on Justin Fields' waiver application to Ohio State: "Irrefutable documentation that has nothing to do with racism was presented to the NCAA in support of OSU's request that Justin Fields be given a waiver. That information wasn't critical of -- and didn't reflect poorly on -- the UGA culture, the UGA administration or staff, any particular student, or the student body. And it certainly didn't reflect poorly on Justin or any member of his family. However, that documentation did provide support for the issuance of a waiver under the NCAA's rules."
