    Old Roy just received another award, likely nothing will happen. Nothing to see here, move along now… Really hope the hammer comes down and I can were a new @ThrowBoyTees design all around Charlotte.

    Because there were a couple of guys who were not athletes, the NCAA will claim no authority here, just like they did before. That is ridiculous if it happens. What authority did they have to punish Penn State for Sandusky abusing boys who were not athletes?

    Based on the track record, the NCAA will not truly punish UNC or Duke in basketball. I hope they prove me wrong on this one, but I’m not holding my breath.

    My guess is that they will be so mad at UNC that Southeast Podunk State University’s women’s lacrosse team will get hammered.

      I feel terrible for the Southwest North Carolina School for the Blind’s rifle team for what the NCAA is about to do to them over this UNC scandal

    Notice that it will be released on a Friday afternoon? They must be taking lessons from the Tom Jurich school of press releases.

      With all the stuff going on at L-ville i don’t see how they have time enough to check out other schools.

      Seriously, how long until the NCAA moves their investigative arm’s main office to downtown Louisville just to save on travel?

    I can’t wait for Ole Roy to be suspended for the first half of an exhibition game. Someone let the feds take over the investigation.

      I read somewhere (Sea of Blue?) that said that UNC had been named as the school involved with they financial planner who was behind the entire FBI investigation. Of course it’s a mystery why UNC was not caught up in the FBI investigation.

    They just took a commitment from a kid that is part of the FBI investigation. Do they sound worried to you?

    Now the UNC women’s Badminton team.

      They better drop the hammer 🔨 big time. And I bet Louisville will be watching the outcome of this whole thing VERY closely.

    if they do not hammer NC this opens up the door for all programs to have fake classes for the athletes, straight A’s for everyone!!!!!!!!!

    One would think with all the scrutiny the NCAA is under after mishandling the shenanigans at Miami, and with all the crap that has come to light with Ole Miss, Baylor, UofL, and UNC, and then of course, the next load of crap with the FBI investigation involving so many more schools (and UofL again), that if they ever want to be taken seriously again, they would throw the book at the Tar Heels.

    Especially considering how much they’ve tried to let UNC skate (even punishing the Womens’ BB program, despite the main focus lying on Mens’ BB and Football), with UNC continuing to flip the bird at them anyway.

    Either they’re gonna get the sledge hammer or a wrist-slap. No middle ground here.

    They’ll be congratulated on their high GPA’s. Nothing happening on this.

    All joking aside, now that Louisville has broken the proverbial seal on tearing down championship banners, I wonder if UNC should be concerned about the ones that were hung for years involved in this? Remember that in the last notice of allegations, the NCAA made it a point to add MBB back into the list of those programs standing accused.

    If the NCAA just decided that the class couldn’t count toward GPA because it didn’t meet an academic threshold required of even high school classes (which are still surprisingly stringent despite who gets into Duke lately…), there might be at least one ineligible player on those rosters and that would void every game they participated in.

      Hope you’re right. They have had it coming to them for a long time!

    The NCAA will crack down on them and issue a Double Dog Dare Probation for the next year.

      Double Dog Dare Probation for ol Roy is right; they won’t mess with “The Huckleberry Hound Show”.

    I hope both UNC and the precious “We don’t do anything wrong league” the ACC “Academics Cheaters Conference “ will have the hammer fall in banners coming down all the way to Dean Smith’s coaching tenure! Plus No postseason tournaments and huge scholarships reductions. I know this would shake the ACC flagship network ESPN “Erase Sports Political Network.”

      You REALLY don’t want ESPN to suffer if you’re fan of Kentucky, or any other SEC school for that matter. The SEC Network is a *HUGE* profit generator for the conference, and ESPN runs it. Losing that network would be devastating to the programs at all 14 schools, but especially the relatively smaller ones like Kentucky.

      And before you go into how Kentucky is such a huge athletics department and would be fine without ESPN, to whom do we owe some of that recent success and highly lucrative publicity? What two network families carry basically all of our games? CBS and…… ESPN.

      I don’t think anybody here is in favor of ESPN suffering financially. We just want to see some attitudes changed at that network. They have gotten way too preachy over the years.

    You can’t make this stuff up folks…

    If the athletes took fake classes, they werent eligible and they werent student-athletes. Vacating records and returning money are in order for all seasons/games affected.

    This also means that the money earned by the teams playing ineligible players is FOR PROFIT money, not taxed at the same rate as a non-profit. If university officials knew they had these fake classes and kept a lid on it, it’s also tax fraud. That’s a federal criminal issue that no one will touch, however, as it would hurt too many people’s pocketbooks.

    How does a school keep its accreditation when they are found to offer fake classes?

    Well, its 2:35 eastern time and no word yet? What happened to noon? And I will not be forced to believe that the timing of the announcement coming during the middle of this huge scandal across mens college basketball is just a coincidence. It is only more a reason to believe that they will not be coming down on UNC and hoping the bigger news washes it away. This is coming right in the middle of the first and what is being reported a second set of indictments surrounding college basketball and I would expect it soon thereafter of the report that UNC is in the clear again. I see them suspending Roy Williams for a few conference games and possibly a reduction of scholarships for a year or two with probation at the most, but they will not touch their wins or national championships. You can bank on that.
