It is being reported today that the NCAA has provided UNC-CH with a verbal notice of inquiry today, notifying the school of its plans to reopen its 20

The NCAA called Bubba today after determining that “additional” people with information and “others” who were previously uncooperative might now be willing to speak with the enforcement staff at the NCAA. Joy to the World!06/30/2014 at 3:22 PM #53122pakfanistanParticipant

I wonder if Mary willingham is considered one of those people…some people involved in this have the ability to redeem my faith in decency in this state. Woodall and wanstein..06/30/2014 at 4:20 PM #53129gumbydammitParticipant

Ah, the Friday joke never gets old. But after 2 years and a couple hundred references to it, it may be time for some new material. Hopefully this new phase of the investigation will help.06/30/2014 at 4:37 PM #53132pakfanistanParticipant
I wonder what the new banner will say
Hopefully, “National Vacated Titles Champions, 1789 – Present”06/30/2014 at 4:42 PM #53133bill.onthebeachParticipant
How ’bout…. “Christmas in July!”
’cause… Everybody over in and around Chapel Hill, including Uncle Roy, has a “special” present waiting under the proverbial UNx and the $NCAA$ trees..
And the hitting just keep on coming…
The old radio DJ said…
“No record is a record unless we play it… ”
“It ain’t a hit unless we say it!”
And off the hot wire…
The Line on Uncle Roy sitting on the UNx bench Thanksgiving just moved from 50/50 to 60/40…Not going to be there….

Well if that just isn’t some great news! Time to go entertain myself at IC06/30/2014 at 5:14 PM #53135MrPlywoodParticipant
uNX better get busy printing more of those boilerplate “I got a great education at Carolina” letters.06/30/2014 at 5:40 PM #53137Fastback68Participant
I’m praying for a coordinated effort between Unx, Wainstein and the NCAA that only results in minor verbal spankings. Keep painting yourselves into a corner. I know the odds are slim but eventually an outside entity could gut these tools.
Completely agree that the attorneys have a prioritized laundry list of items to sacrifice as the need arises. Roy is not far down the list to cauterize the overall wound and keep Dean out of it. Roy Boy would like nothing more than to bask in the lime light as he falls on the sword to save all things Carolina.
The perfect script would have this drag out for another 2-3 years with more infractions surfacing. It will never happen but anything less than a five year death penalty for all programs involved and a hefty fine to be divided by the ACC schools that suffered for decades would be too little.06/30/2014 at 5:41 PM #53138StateFansKeymaster
Time is flying on us all!! It hasn’t been ‘2 years’ of the “Friday joke”. More like FOUR YEARS!!! It is the gift that keeps on giving.06/30/2014 at 5:55 PM #53139TheCOWDOGModerator
Woodall was correct…There was some meat on the bones.
I believe my little birdie to be correct about Indiannapolis hanging out in the hallway, waiting for the DA, and the SBI to finish up.
Now that those entities have provided the avenue of info via Wainstein, the NCAA will probably weigh in accordance to Wainstein’s findings.
Who knows?06/30/2014 at 8:05 PM #53144bill.onthebeachParticipant
Say It Ain’t So….
… the Raleigh (N.C.) News & Observer reported that McCants was not the only member of the 2005 team who was enrolled in no-show classes to stay eligible.
The newspaper gathered data that showed “five members of that team (2005) …
accounted for a combined 39 enrollments in classes that have been identified as confirmed or suspected lecture classes that never met.”

Yea – time will tell won’t it? Even the inept investigations have yielded some valuable info. Sec of state revealed that marvin’s handlers got paid… (No action from NCAA?)…martin’s report revealed the fake signatures and tons of fake classes. The correct question is “what the @#%%! Took you so long.”06/30/2014 at 9:00 PM #53147packalum44Participant
The DA drops the charges just before public discovery. For anyone to have hope for justice doesn’t grasp how blatant and public an act of UNC protectionism and support that was.
Whatever happens will be a fraction of the punishment deserved. I gloated the first few years of the investigation and came out a fool.06/30/2014 at 9:56 PM #53148WTNYParticipant
What began as a probe into impermissible benefits in the football program – Marvin Austin and Greg Little, please step forward – uncovered agents afoot and soon crossed over into academic misconduct, with detours covering a U-Haul truck filled with drugs, South Beach clubs and a tutor who handed out cash to players, wrote papers for them and worked as an in-home instructor for Butch Davis’ son.
One tutor led to one plagiarized paper that led to one transcript that led to one department full of phony classes that led to one inadequate and very expensive report that led to one whistleblower that led to many, many protestations and recriminations from the second North Carolina administration to trumpet jargon-laden “reforms” instead of real action.
Beautiful. Read the whole thing!06/30/2014 at 10:26 PM #53149JohnGalt78Participant
I won’t be happy until they’re caught selling tennis shoes.06/30/2014 at 10:44 PM #53150blpackParticipant
Close the school as step one. We can dream can’t we.07/01/2014 at 12:56 AM #53152PackerInRussiaParticipant
Consistent with NCAA protocols, we will have no further comment on this matter until the process is complete
It’s always nice when two parties’ needs align.07/01/2014 at 7:38 AM #53156graywolfParticipant
The NCAA is stepping in to save its own wicked soul. If the public finally understood that the NCAA knew about the cheating and accepted it then the backlash would destroy the NCAA. I expect another minor hand-slap but personally want the death penalty.07/01/2014 at 8:31 AM #53157Prowling WoofieParticipant
Emmert doesn’t have the balls to take this to its full conclusion. Whitewash, Part V.07/01/2014 at 8:40 AM #53158TexpackParticipant
Not sure what to think about this. It will either be a full on whitewash to save the NCAA’s reputation or they will emasculate UNC-CH.
I’m not getting my hopes up just yet.07/01/2014 at 10:25 AM #53159packof81Participant
The NCAA has become a laughingstock. They are only wading back in to save their butts.
Some good has come of it all. Now everyone knows just how corrupt the NCAA is and what lying, cheating scoundrels run UNC. No other school in the nation could have gotten by with what they’ve done. They and their minions continue to run this banana republic of a state like Tammany Hall.
