The University of Memphis will release its response to the NCAA's notice of allegations on Tuesday, a source has told CBSSports.com.
According to the source, the response is 63 pages long with another approximately 480 pages of exhibits. It is designed, in part, to refute the NCAA's claim that former Tiger Derrick Rose "failed to deport himself in accordance with the generally recognized high standards of honesty and sportsmanship normally associated with the conduct and administration of intercollegiate athletics" by allowing someone else to take his SAT. The other serious charge facing Memphis is that Rose's older brother, Reggie Rose, flew on team charters for road trips and stayed at the team hotel without paying.
Memphis will appear before the NCAA committee on infractions in Indianapolis on Saturday.
