a little news on the North Carolina scandal...

remember this scandal has been going on for almost 20 years - was looked at and then ignored multiple times and even now that NCAA is serious - it's still been dragging along 5 years...

Now more hearings and we're still likely "months" away from any resolution...LOL

a Yahoo article says that North Carolina has already been informed of what their penalties will be and..
"(UNC head coach) Roy Williams has insinuated to him that the Tar Heels won’t receive a significant punishment from the NCAA."

but then isn't that just what the NCAA does to the big schools for the worst violations in the biggest scandals of all time..?

It is interesting that the FBI has been investigating several schools and the stories that are coming out and the speculation of future fallout as more details evolve. Al
Capone, only went to jail because of the Treasury Department investigation of income tax evasion. If the NCAA won't clean this mess, maybe the Treasury Department (IRS) will investigate.

Allegations of academic fraud at Auburn now...

Now that people take their finals online - this is the favored mode of cheating - hard to catch anyone...

The NCAA decision regarding the academic fraud going on at North Carolina from 1993 to 2011 is finally in, and it is no surprise. Despite undeniable proof of academic fraud extending over almost 20 years, and involving over 1,500 football, basketball, and other athletes, and despite the fact that North Carolina admitted to it, the NCAA, after years of stalling finally decides to issue a tiny slap on the wrist, with no major penalties. In fact, the only significant penalty was that the NCAA penalized one UNC Afro American Studies professor who arranged the phony, no-work classes for athletes which did not even require attendance to get A-grades, by issuing a "show cause" penalty prohibiting him from working for their athletic department for 5 years, even though he doesn't work for the Athletic Department and never did! What a joke!

Former (Department of African and Afro-American Studies) department chairman Julius Nyang'oro and retired office administrator Deborah Crowder failed to cooperate during the investigation. The only sanction connected with the probe is a five-year show cause for Nyang'oro lasting until Oct. 12, 2022. Crowder was not punished, but the NCAA says it is making note of her initial lack of cooperation....
North Carolina has maintained that the NCAA has no jurisdiction over this academic matter, and has denied that student-athletes received impermissible benefits due to the fact that the classes in question were offered to the entire student body.
The investigation centered on a system in which a significant percentage of student-athletes took classes that had academic irregularities -- and whether that resulted in those athletes receiving an impermissible benefit. The classes were taken by more than 3,100 students -- nearly half of them athletes -- from 1993 to 2011.
The Tar Heels won a pair of national basketball titles within the span -- in 2005 and 2009. North Carolina also won a national championship this past season, but that title was never in question.

This ranks up there with looking the other way when Auburn paid $250,000 to the father of Cam Newton in exchange for landing him...
and completely ignoring the hundreds of thousands of $$ of gifts, clothes, electronics, cars, and free luxury apartment that players like Reggie Bush and others routinely received...

NCAA does concede that a multitude of athletes benefitted from taking the phony courses, but then goes on to say that so did non-athletes - so who cares

Does anyone have even the tiniest doubt that had Bradley pulled this crap and cheated - we'd have gotten the death penalty...this is what makes fans like me soooo glad the FBI takes the cheating seriously

Here is an example of an essay from a North Carolina player who took one of the no-show, easy-A, sham classes run by the Afro American Studies professor.

This University-level course final exam essay received an A- from the professor!-

This juvenile essay reads like a 3rd grader wrote it with multiple omissions, grammatical errors and completely fabricated quotes.
