The local Chicago office ruled in his favor.

The University appealed to the National Labor Relations Board stating the players should remain considered students at the University.

Others such as University of Nebraska chancellor Harvey Perlman concurred.

The chancellor went on to say the NLRB ruling would apply to only private universities not public ones...
