Arizona is appealing the suspension for the positive test, which the school argues is not a result of renewed PED use, but a residual trace of the steroid Ostarine in Trierís system from 2016. Thatís when Trier first tested positive for PED use, causing him to miss 19 games last season. Trierís attorney Steve Thompson said Trier original ingestion of Ostarine was inadvertent and came as the result of his stepfather mixing it in a drink for the player.

Arizona requested a medical exception from the NCAA to allow Trier to continue playing, but that request was rejected Thursday and he was declared ineligible. Penalty for a second positive PED test would be a one-year suspension from competition.

Holy shit fuck!!!!! Wtf is going on? Is this the same test they used last year? Is this a new type of test? If so then, this can't be fair to him or the team. And the whole NCAA for that matter. I wonder if any other player is being subjected to such tests... This royally sucks...

If that "Science Lesson of the Day" is actually true, how does the NCAA get to rule Trier ineligible for a suspension that he served last season?
Whatever the case may be, this is A LOT of negative attention coming down on Arizona right now.

The Trier PEDs that went on 2016-17, the FBI case in the summer/fall of 2017, and now we have the Trier PEDs 2.0; I'm sleep!
This is really going to test how committed our fan base is, more so than the looming interim circus we had before Lute officially stepped down.

Good read for Arizona fans on Kolton Houston, a football player ineligibile for 3 years for a steroid that seemed to remain in his system

If Alonzo is allowed to play during the appeal (is he playing tonight?) I'm sure NCAA will deny the appeal right before the PAC tourney or big dance.

Hearing Arizona is hoping Trier will be eligible very soon as the B sample is being requested to be tested, which they believe has a good chance of coming back negative.

Sean Miller says he hopes Trier is cleared by as soon as tomorrow!
