Could suck to be a Tarheel for the next few months/years. Or more than it already does. :lol:
I suspect they are not alone in this practice...
Only question is how many and how much.

Maybe if we cheated, we'd have the stellar success on the field UNC has had...:lol:
Legitimate concern at this point.
How long til a former "student"- athlete sues the school for failing to deliver the eductation they were promised in exchange for playing and generating revenue for the school.
You can argue that the athletes willingly participated and they did but they could easily argue that they were young and the culture forced them to participate. I wonder which side the average jury would believe after 18 years and over 3,000 students were involved and faculty members are facing criminal charges.
Good thing they didn't sniff around here in the 80's when Mac was building the franchise....
No ****. I think it's actually required for a school applying to join the SEC. :lol:
Hoisted on her own petard. :lol:
That sounds kinda dirty, doesn't it? :huh:
This was the part that stood out to me the most.
The school was made aware and said they'd investigate, and didn't "find" this. Ok, sure
But the NCAA also was made aware, investigated, and didn't find this. WTF? Here's what this means to me:
NCAA investigator to School head of compliance: "Did you guys cheat?"
Head of compliance: "Nope"
NCAA investigator: "Cool. Well, I'll do nothing for a few months so it seems like I'm working, then I'll release that you guys are good to go. Thanks for your help in our investigation."
Couldn't happen to a better school, damn I hate them, always have.
You make a good point. This is the same organization that bungled a case-closed situation in Miami a few years ago, and determined it's perfectly normal for Oregon to pay $25,000 to somebody who happens to be close to an athlete to do absolutely nothing. Ohio State? Don't get me started.
This seems like a pretty clear departure from the best interests of, well, all parties. Does this feel Death Penalty-ee?
I'd be all for it because I hate them. That said, I doubt that ever happens again. They deserve tough penalties. Also, I don't pretend this doesn't go on at plenty of places. Don't get caught.
If it were a MAC team or Big Sky they would be looking at huge sanctions.
Instead the NCAA gets a phone call from CBS Sports programing department saying "Remember that X number of our top 20 rated college basketball broadcast including UNC before you decide on a response" and we sure wouldn't want to hurt ratings this year.
UNC then throws some mid-level administrator under the bus, gets docked one scholarship for two seasons (later reduced to one season) and promises to be good in the future. Case closed.
“The NCAA is so mad at Kentucky it will probably slap another two years probation on Cleveland State.’’ Jerry Tarkanian
Deeper and deeper
Guess we could see this coming. Interesting to watch how it ultimately turns out.
Man, its one thing to take improper benefits, but to completely defile the education system would seem like a death penalty to me. Not sure how the NCAA doesn't come down hard here.
See the Jerry Tark quote above in 76's post. That about sums it up.
What I will find interesting (much more than anything the NCAA may or will not do, because ... well, **** them) is how many more UNC "student-athletes" will come forward and maybe even bring a class-action suit for breach of contract ... and then maybe also at other schools.
Good point. You know those guys who are in the same situation and came out of School with no degree, basically doing nothing, will see this as a way to get paid. Probably opened up the flood gates here.
They robbed those athletes. I can't imagine anything but the death penalty.
UNC seems to be admitting wrongdoing but arguing that the NCAA has no standing.
Beyond the scope at UNC, no position at ****bailer, might as well shut them down as an organization now and put them out of their misery.
They'll always have granola bars...
This scandal above all others irks me. Just a damn shame and serves as an epitome of how college athletics can make a mockery of what should be one our foremost interests, higher education.
For those that have asked in a few posts above, I believe a lawsuit has already been put forth by a former football player. I don't know what happened to it though - was years ago.
I respect UNC a lot, but they need severe punishment, and then...the NCAA needs to undergo some drastic changes. Seriously, this one scandal makes me hate college sports. I hate the NCAA...
Couldn't be your Duke allegiance coloring your perception no?
It was worse. They were literally stealing their athlete's youth. **** unc. No respect.
Double **** these douche ****s.
