Sports Illustrated has a great expose' about how middle-men help athletes cheat the system in order to become eligible and stay eligible when they are not able to meet minimum requirements on their own-
Confessions of a Fixer: How a former coach perpetuated a cheating scheme
http://www.si.com/college-basketball...heating-scheme

Interesting that the "fixer" profiled in ths tory was making large sums of money doing what he did to illegally help kids cheat, but he says he did it for a noble purpose of "helping kids get scholarships", which he admits they would not have qualified for without his help.

He also admits that in addition to the money, the former coach admits he was hoping to parlay this into another coaching job in the NCAA.

Also concerning is his admission that "Many times, he says, the players’ coaches directed athletes his way," even though they knew he was cheating!

another twist on the UNC sham classes scandal....

a couple of ex-North Carolina athletes are SUING the school and the NCAA...
because even though they got a free education, and even though they took these classes willingly, and even though they fully and knowingly participated in this cheating scam.....now they are unhappy that these were fake classes and they might not get credit for them!!
http://www.cbssports.com/images/blog...-complaint.pdf


And more...NCAA now finds 20 other schools that similarly are putting their athletes in fake classes or having someone else do their work just to give them passing grades..

some of North Carolina's tricks

if a kid is ineligible to play as a college student - then just lie & classify them as a grad student and bypass NCAA rules!

why with all the overwhelming evidence and proof that North Carolina has been cheating for many years, falsifying their athletes' eligibility, hiring other people to do their work for them, changing grades, giving them cushy grades in non-existent classes, and paying players...

Why are they still being allowed to play & advance in the NCAA Tourney?

there was little doubt that North Carolina committed many flagrant and severe violations, fraud, and cheating...

and now NCAA even, after dragging their feet for several years, now admits that evidence of some of the worst cheating and fraud that's ever been seen - is all over the place at UNC - happening right thru other scandals and violations the past 1.5 decades.
http://www.cbssports.com/collegefoot...ademic-scandal

The cheating has gone on since at least 2000 - and NCAA has been fully aware of it since 2010 when a YahooSports story exposed some of it...

now let's see if they penalize them or just give them a tiny slap...

Post Heads Must Roll For The Good Of The Sport

Time to drop the big one on UNC as a warning to all other BCS schools, that they are next if their cheating continues.

NCAA "DEATH PENALTY" for UNC....

The other D-I cheaters will have 48 hours to confess their own MBB rules sins and make changes to stop them in exchange for a slap on their wrists and lifetime NCAA probation. Any hint of future scams and they will get the death penalty...

Will cause wailing and tears, and financial ruin for UNC sports programs, but tough [email protected], UNC brought this on themselves......

A once in a lifetime opportunity for NCAA to clean up everyone at the cost of one national MBB program. The NCAA is big enough to overcome one marquee program going up in flames.....

you won't see the other ACC teams calling for penalties nor any of the other power conference schools....
because they all have been cheating just the same - just that nobody's done an expose' article to lead the NCAA to the cheating...
Almost every single broad cheating scandal (Miami, USC/Reggie Bush/OJ Mayo, Syracuse, UNC, etc..) were all discovered by bloggers and ordinary people and NCAA tried like crazy to ignore facts until they were embarrassed into investigating.

This stands as so incredibly different than how they treated Bradley - sending TWO field investigators UNANNOUNCED to Peoria to demand papers, evidence, etc - and to look 'til they found something to prosecute even if they couldn't find what they were actually looking for!
And they engineered all this before Bradley was even notified that there were allegations or that there was an investigation.

interesting take on how North Carolina expects to kinda get off pretty easy - claiming this is nothing more than a "$100 handshake" kind of violation..

and despite the massive & broad range of over 3000 students taking sham classes and committing other violations...
"Remember, the NCAA was basically shamed into coming back on this case a year ago after dropping it." - thus they really just want it to go away quickly...

the NCAA is still dragging their feet on this scandal....
but a different agency - the "Southern Association of Colleges and Schools" - which has little power to penalize anyone --
has found --
"7 out of 18 compliance violations including integrity, comprehensive standards,
control of athletics, program content, academic support system, and academic freedom."

and has given UNC one of the harshest penalties they have ever dealt - even tho it is just "probation"...
http://abc11.com/education/unc-gets-...andal-/777947/

They supposedly could have stripped the school of it's accreditation but that would have hurt the current students more than anyone else - and they are innocent in all this.

never mind that North Carolina clearly violated all kinds of NCAA impermissible benefits & fraudulent academics rules...
and never mind that basketball coach Roy Williams was in charge...

None of that matters because he wins more than loses so they just gave him a big extension

They just happened to report more violations just 4 days before they were supposed to answer for the previous ones, this will most likely push back any decision until after basketball season. This is a complete joke and so is the NCAA

If this was Bradley does anyone have even a tiny doubt that we'd have been judged and given the death penalty long, long ago...

but it's North Carolina - so not only is it dragging on for nearly two decades - but there's also rumors it may just get dropped..

This NORTH CAROLINA academic scandal with fake classes and doctored grades has been going on six years now... (note this thread was started in 2012)

but the NCAA had hints about this stuff going back even farther...and there's evidence of these phony classes to keep their athletes eligible - that dates all the way back to 1993.

...but even in this active NCAA investigation phase...this is dragging on and on and on...

we're soon going to be into the 7th year!!
http://espn.go.com/college-sports/st...-july-deadline

BUT when NCAA came to Bradley's campus - they showed up within days after they got a false report about Bradley holding impermissible off-season practices.... and dug around trying to find something - never finding what they came for.
But then they jumped all over the employment records for a couple players and nailed Bradley with penalties by the end of summer.
It seems like they wrapped up the entire process within weeks.

But the UNC scandal has already been going on 6 years, there's tons more evidence and even ex-players coming forward with da-m-ning tales of having their coursework done for them and taking sham courses..and yet NCAA is still reluctant to do a thing.
Someone explain this?

Interesting report on the North Carolina response to the NCAA charges of academic fraud...

apparently UNC just told the NCAA to just stick with refereeing sports and buzz off with the academic crap...
http://deadspin.com/unc-response-to-...rts-1784719614

NCAA needs to come down hard and nail this stuff but they've been dragging their feet and letting North Carolina keep plugging along for the past DECADE!!!

Go back & read some of our links - the cheating goes back to the early 1990's and the NCAA was fully aware of it almost a decade ago yet didn't even begin investigating until 2012...
This thread is already 4 years old and NCAA is still twiddling their thumbs...
How long did they twiddle their thumbs when they thought maybe, based on the ratting of one disgruntled ex-employee, that maybe Bradley might be holding a couple off-season practices in summer of 2005? Well, they showed up on campus to investigate within days of getting the complaint...

Another article that details North Carolina's claim that the NCAA is wrong in their accusations against them, and that they should drop their charges of academic fraud and impermissable benefits, even though most of them have been documented and corroborated.
http://collegebasketball.nbcsports.c...edural-errors/

Most schools, when caught cheating, would simply agree to self-imposed penalties and hope the NCAA goes easy on them. But North Carolina is playing hardball, and basically telling the NCAA they haven't really done anything wrong and to back off and leave them alone.

Finally someone says it...
North Carolina spent 18 years committing serious academic fraud then
spent millions more covering it up, defending and delaying it...

now their "investment" has paid off as they make the Final Four...

LOL - that's funny. Loren Tate. Still bitter over UIUC getting beat by UNC in 2005.
