It's an account with ~110 followers quote tweeting an account with ~70 followers. The news might not be wrong, but they essentially have 0 credibility and are likely using a story they assume will be proven right to take credit for breaking a story they have no inside info about.

The funniest thing is that JV Sports is Ted Rydquist. He is quoting himself here.

Dude has really been trying to get some clicks here (he has a profile) and on Reddit.

Same person that made his own bracketology that was a C/P from Lunardi with a couple minor changes to make it as ideal to Michigan as possible.

Edit: his handle here is MGoBlue7523

Questionable source but I trust he’s definitely going to be eligible since Webb and UMBig11 are saying he will be . I just wish that they’d make it publicly official already

Shea's own attorney (Thomas Mars) doesn't even expect a ruling until late March or early April. There is a process in place. Now, that could change if Ole miss decided to cooperate, but that is highly unlikely. Any good counsel would advise them to steer clear of anything verbal or written that would further implicate the university. I thnk this guy is guessing. 

"Ole Miss had up to 10 business days to respond. That closing date is March 12th/13th (Est). Once that is completed the NCAA Case Mgr will review the contents and register the case. The case will appear before the Legislative Relief Committee on "eligibility issues" and will be comprised of a three member panel.

Once the meeting is scheduled and convened, usually within one week, the Case Mgr will author a memo to the committee outlining the grounds and purpose of the waiver. The committee will then discuss the application and render a decision and ruling on the case that will be documented and released. While there is no set deadline to complete the ruling it is highly likely that it will be processed and completed by Mar 23rd.

The contents of UM's appeal and the response by Ole Miss could be made public sometime in the near future. So, we may get a chance to understand the grounds of the appeal as it moves through the process. From what I am told, we can expect a positive outcome. It is very unlikely that Ole Miss will stand in the way of the athletes that have already left the program."

This is interesting. So, the legislative relief committee consists of 7 members and requires a simple majority vote on cases. Do they choose the three members to hear a given case at random? Is it based on who they think would have the least bias in the matter? I'm sure the outcome for Shea is not going to change based on who hears his case, just wondering why they pare it down to three for the panel.

Is he related to that mineral guy who posts here?  Throw shit against the wall to see if it sticks. 

I guess you have to give them some credit as they know there will always be a few morons who fall for it.
