Social Media reactions to the NCAA Statement’s on Tez Walker

The Tez Walker saga continues after the NCAA released a statement explaining their stance on making the transfer WR Ineligible to play for the 2023-2024 football season.

The statement was released Tuesday afternoon in a press release by the NCAA and soon after was plastered throughout social media. The NCAA also stated that they were receiving threats based on their verdict.

“The NCAA is aware of violent – and possibly criminal – threats recently directed at committee members involved in regulatory decisions. The national office is coordinating with law enforcement and will continue to do whatever possible to support the volunteers who serve on these committees.”

The statement then attempts to clarify their ruling, breaking down the transfer portal numbers, with claims that only 3% of the 21,685 student-athletes in the portal would require a waiver due to being a multiple transfer. The statement released by the NCAA ended with the board expressing their concerns with how UNC leadership handled the decision.

“The DI Board is troubled by the public remarks made last week by some of the University of North Carolina leadership. Those comments directly contradict what we and our fellow Division I members and coaches called for vociferously – including UNC’s own football coach.”

It is safe to say this did not boil over on social media slamming the NCAA over their statement, igniting the fire that continues to flame.

Let us look at how social media reacted to the NCAA statement.
