Devon Ramsay's appeal postponed

North Carolina fullback Devon Ramsay's NCAA appeal, scheduled for Thursday, has been postponed, the university announced Wednesday.

Ramsay, who played the first four games and was then held out the rest of the year, was ruled permanently ineligible in November.

"We asked the NCAA to postpone the appeal hearing for Devon, which was originally scheduled for Thursday," UNC athletic director Dick Baddour said in a prepared statement. "We decided it was in his best interest to allow more time to develop the case in support of him. We do not know the date of his rescheduled appeal at this time."
