Las Vegas Reviw-Journal reports that Muhammad's father, Ron Holmes, has acquired the services of high-profile attorney Robert Orr, former North Carolina — hmmm, isn't Durham in North Carolina? — supreme court justice, to represent the player, plus has hired William Trosch to represent him (Homes). Orr had one of the best descriptions of the NCAA rules and their administration that I've read:
"Certainly their impression is that they were within NCAA rules," Orr said. "I have often quoted the assistant dean of the Duke law school, 'The problem with the NCAA rule book isn't its length. It's that it's intellectually incomprehensible.' There's great confusion and lack of clarity in how the rules are applied."
