NCAA’s Infractions Report on UNC to come out tomorrow (yeah, right)


Here we go again.

After it was set to be released last Friday, the NCAA’s infractions report is expected to be released this Friday, which is tomorrow.

UNC asked for it to be postponed last week, per Inside Carolina:

The next and potentially final step in the University of North Carolina’s years-long NCAA investigation into academic irregularities in the formerly named African and Afro-American Studies department will occur Friday when the NCAA releases its infraction report. Sources confirm the University was given 24 hours notice of the announcement schedule on Thursday morning.

The NCAA had planned to release the report last Friday, but UNC asked for it to be postponed, per sources, because of events surrounding the University’s major fundraising campaign that was launching that day.

At this point I’ll believe it when I see it. It may never come out.

UPDATE

Friday night is UNC’s “Late Night with Roy.” Several key recruits will be visiting and the program will raise its new championship banner.

    Lol. So the NCAA said sure, we will wait a week. Whatever works best for you UNC. Also UNC, just let us know what punishment you think is appropriate and let’s get this nasty mess behind us.

    Actually, the reasoning behind the delay the first time is that the school had a major $4.5B fundraiser scheduled last weekend. Then the issue actually came from the NCAA not being available until tomorrow. As you know from yesterday’s news, they were working on this new committee to clean up the sport.
    I predict a very strict penalty from the NCAA tomorrow. They reached their verdict quickly, and have had pressure from the public to drop the hammer. After what they did to Louisville this summer, I think tomorrow is going to be a great day 🙂

      I wouldn’t count on it…LOL.

    It’s fitting that tomorrow is International Skeptics Day, considering all of our skepticism about whether this will actually be released

    To quote my wife about something entirely unrelated (but it seems to fit perfectly), “You say you’re going to do it tomorrow. Always tomorrow, tomorrow. But somehow tomorrow never comes, does it? Funny how that happens…”

      HaHa, that sounds like my wife. Sisters separated at birth? 😀

    Yea, asked it to be delayed a week so they can have their damage control statements prepped.

    “Late Night With Roy” should be bailing his phony ass out of jail.

    NCAA is UNC lap dog. They will do anything UNC tells them to do.

    rigging the report the way NC wants it took more time than they thought.

  9. kentuckybackupplayer

    also if fake classes are ok i am signing up to get my PHD, wont take any time at all.

    The slap on the wrist heard ’round the world…..

    There was this from the NCAA:

    “It is equally important to be clear what this case is not about,” the enforcement staff wrote. “This case is not about so-called fake classes or easy courses. The institution acknowledges that although the courses at issue did not meet its expectations for academic rigor, the institution did not deem the courses to be fraudulent. Nor is this case about NCAA review of classroom curriculum. The institution continues to argue that the NCAA enforcement staff should not judge academic rigor or revisit classroom decisions. The enforcement staff continues to agree and feels strongly that those considerations are reserved to the sound discretion of individual schools and their accrediting agencies. Nothing in this case suggests otherwise.”

    So this looks like the NCAA is trying to avoid UNC’s dodge that it is an academic issue.

    1. PillsburyThrowboy

      I actually don’t see the NCAA doing anything because of this reason. If the NCAA could prove that ONLY student athletes took these courses or got automatic A’s, then I see the NCAA imposing sanctions. But that seems like it will be hard to prove.

    2. J-Dub421

      Over half the enrollees in the fake classes were athletes. I never had a class at UK that had more than a handful of athletes in it. Clearly they were being funnelled into these classes.

    And seeing the posts by the delusional UNC fans makes me want to see them get hammered even more:

    “Anything beyond the ncaa issuing us an apology for this witchhunt while willfully ignoring legitimate cheating elsewhere (i.e. fbi investigation) should be appealed.”

    “Hoping this is another example of the Friday news dump. In the political realm any story dropped Friday afternoon is hoped to be forgotten about by Monday.”

    “SO soon? Are you sure we don’t need a few more years to hang this albatross around our necks?”

    1. J-Dub421

      UNC played players who were academically ineligible (or would have been without fake classes). I don’t see any way around this. They absolutely should be punished. Players get suspended/held out of team activities all the time when they are academically ineligible.
