North Carolina hit with new notice of allegations


Finally, some action on the North Carolina academic scandal front. Right when we had given up on seeing anything develop, the NCAA hit Carolina with a brand new notice of allegations. It’s unclear what exactly that includes, but the Associated Press reported the news today after speaking to a source close to the situation. North Carolina confirmed the NOA.

The first notice of allegations came last May, detailing the investigation into the school’s academic fraud, including allegations of lack of institutional control. The new, amended version of the NOA will be released soon once the university’s legal team touches it up. UNC has 90 days to respond.

The whole situation is still many months from its conclusion, but this is some progress, finally.

    I’m pretty sure this resets the clock for bringing punishments against the university, so it’s like the whole thing has actually moved backward rather than forward since the NCAA can take even longer to “investigate” now.

    What is it with the ACC and being dirty? UL, Cuse, UNC all caught within the past 2-3 years.

    The Tarholes should never have been allowed to compete for the championship this year and I hope Roy Boy cried his phony eyes out…The Carolina Way my aspen!

    To the NCAA, UNC may be bullet proof, Teflon coated and Kevlar protected, but the UNC academia will not forgive this smear. I really don’t expect extraordinary sanctions from the NCAA but all those tenured professors are embarrassed and they could care less about sports.

    Really surprised the first NOI didn’t charge the basketball or football programs with any specific violation, and charged no one associated with those programs (head coaches, assistant coaches, academic support staff members). That explains Roy’s statement that he wasn’t worried about the basketball program because no one’s be charged with anything.

    Even more surprised that the first NOI made no finding that student-athletes who received impermissible benefits were ineligible. How can that be? If there’s no finding of ineligibility, games will not be vacated, championships will not be vacated, notwithstanding well-documented academic fraud to maintain player eligibility. The NCAA can’t simply ignore academic fraud, can it?

    I realized how silly that sounded soon as I said it.

    The NOA is not going to single out MBB as the sole starter of the classes, but they will get hit hard and will other sports. MBB is going to get hit hard, the NOA will date 1989-2011 so Dean Smith was heavily involved as was Roy. The 8 month delay on UNC is due to the NCAA asking UNC to recalculate/recertify the eligibility of athletes…tons of athletes. Expect to see several hundred ineligible athletes at UNC. Also don’t expect any announcement of NOA till Memorial Day weekend. UNC has a history of releasing bad press on days before holidays or tragedy, like when they released bad press on the day of the Sandy Hook shooting.
