He also leads the team in rushing with 448 yards and four touchdowns on 91 carries. (Inside Carolina)

Source names 9 employees who will face disciplinary action

A person familiar with the matter has confirmed the names of nine people facing disciplinary action — including at least four terminations — after they were implicated in Wednesday's report from independent investigator Kenneth Wainstein.

What Does the NCAA Do Next?

The exhaustive details of the Wainstein Report have now been released to the public with a copy sent to the NCAA for review.

NCAA will keep digging, but relative closure near for Heels

It’s still too early to say with absolute certainty that the UNC athletics scandal has reached road’s end – keep in mind that the NCAA continues to look into the mess. But based on Wednesday’s findings in the Kenneth Wainstein probe, there’s solid reason to predict there will no more dire sanctions from the NCAA. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Thoughts on the AFAM scandal from a former UNC Baseball player

I played baseball at UNC during the time of this academic scandal and took an AFAM course, albeit a normal one, where attendance and work were required. I was a low-rung player in a non-revenue sports program, but I hung in the same circles as a lot higher-profile UNC athletes. Never once did I hear about paper courses or this rampant academic fraud.

Tar Heels Prep For Virginia

After its 48-43 win over Georgia Tech last weekend, Carolina has a little more bounce in its step at practice this week. Head coach Larry Fedora doesn't like to see a lot of ups and downs in attitude from his players throughout the season, preferring that they stay consistent from week to week, win or lose - but he does think the team's confidence is a higher this week.

Wainstein Report Q&A

Special investigator Kenneth Wainstein delivered his exhaustive report about academic fraud involving the African and Afro-American Studies Department at UNC on Wednesday. Here are some key questions and answers about the report and its implications: (Tar Heel Blog)

Impressions from Wainstein Wednesday

The biggest reason for trepidation if I'm a UNC fan is the possibility that Mark Emmert sees this as an opportunity to retake the moral high ground that has crumbled under the NCAA in recent years. He tried with Penn State. There are none of the complicating issues in Chapel Hill. Just 2 decades of thoroughly documented chicanery involving countless athletes and teams. (ABC 11)

UNCW Academic Advisor with ties to UNC scandal let go

A University of North Carolina Wilmington Athletic Academic Advisor, with ties to the UNC Chapel Hill academic scandal, was "separated" from the university Wednesday.
