Tale of the Tape: Virginia

Here is how UNC matches up with Virginia by the numbers. This is a clear case of strength vs strength. UNC's high powered offense which has finally gotten into a groove and is putting who gaudy numbers versus a Virginia team that allows just 100 yards rushing and less than 30 points per game.

Honest Shame

College sports produce collective emotions. That’s one of the main reasons they are so popular and attract such committed, loyal followers. The collective emotion Tar Heel fans are feeling this week is shame. And while what happened at the University of North Carolina over a stunningly prolonged period was not okay, it is okay to feel and express shame that it happened. (Inside Carolina)

#2 Noles, #5 Heels Battle To 1-1 Draw In Women's Soccer

Second-ranked Florida State and fifth-ranked North Carolina went toe-to-toe Thursday night at Fetzer Field as the Tar Heels came back to tie the Seminoles 1-1 in women's soccer action before a crowd of 1,322 at Fetzer Field and a national TV audience. The two teams came into the match as the only remaining unbeaten and untied teams in the ACC. (GoHeels.com)

Failures in oversight worsened UNC academic fraud

Wainstein's report notes school officials failed to act on their suspicions or specific concerns that came to their attention. It all added up to a series of missed chances to stop the fraud and instead allowed it to escalate. Accreditation questions are now facing the university. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools' Commission on Colleges had placed the campus on its watch list until this summer. (Associated Press)

Coaches removed from academics, investigation finds

When asked Wednesday how involved he was in his players’ academics, UNC coach Larry Fedora said he was only focused on his next opponent. “I couldn’t tell you what one guy’s major is.“ Fedora’s answer helps explain how there were 963 enrollments of football players and 340 of basketball players in the fraudulent paper classes offered by UNC’s Department of African and Afro-American Studies between 1999-2009. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Expert: Fallout from NCAA scandal could hurt UNC in major ways

It appears the Wainstein report could possibly rewrite the history of UNC's storied basketball program. The report revealed the paper class scheme had been going on for nearly two decades. An expert who deals with the NCAA is suggesting the fallout could cost UNC a championship banner inside the Dean Dome. (ABC 11)

UNC offered fake classes for 18 years. But that's not the only academic scandal.

The scandal is bigger than athletics. Half the students enrolled in UNC's fake classes were not athletes. They were average, everyday students. What happened at UNC is an extreme symptom of a widespread problem: nobody outside colleges really knows what, or if, students are learning. Is a B in Sociology 101 at Wellesley, which is fighting grade inflation, the same as a B in Sociology 101 at Yale? (Vox.com)

On The Wainstein Report, The Media, The NCAA, And The Alma Mater

I am not blind to the issue and am certainly not proud of it, but I was fortunate enough to attend what I believe to be the greatest institution of higher learning on this planet. It has its warts as any place does, but the friends I made, how hard I worked, what I learned and the experiences I had shaped me as a person and are second to none. (Thrown Away To Worthy)

Campus shocked by former faculty chairwoman Jan Boxill's involvement in academic scandal

It’s the irony that hurts the most. The revelations in Kenneth Wainstein’s report that former faculty chairwoman and preeminent scholar on sports ethics Jan Boxill was responsible for funneling student-athletes into bogus paper classes and making sure they received the grade they would need to stay eligible was like a kick to the stomach for her friends and colleagues who relied on Boxill to help guide the University out of the maelstrom of academic impropriety.

NCAA Up Next For UNC

The NCAA expressed little interest when University of Michigan psychology professor John Hagen taught 294 independent study courses with a heavy concentration of student-athletes (85 percent) from 2004-07, according to The Ann Arbor News. David Goldfield, a UNC Charlotte history professor and former NCAA Division I Academics Cabinet member, placed UNC’s scandal in a similar category. (Inside Carolina)

C.B. McGrath Recalls Experiences at Topeka West, KU

C.B. McGrath is one of the best players to come out of Topeka and has enjoyed plenty of success after graduating from Topeka West in 1994. The former Kansas High School Player of the Year went on to play at the University of Kansas (1994-98) and is currently an assistant coach at North Carolina, where he has spent the last 11 seasons winning national titles in 2005 and 2009. (Topeka Hoops)

Marquise Williams in Rhythm

Midway through his junior season, North Carolina quarterback Marquise Williams has found the right rhythm that has allowed him to blossom in Larry Fedora’s up-tempo spread offense. For the season, Williams has completed 64.5 percent of his passes (156-of-242) for 1,776 yards, 15 touchdowns and six interceptions. 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. The person could not confirm whether each employee was terminated or facing other disciplinary action because of the University's policies on handling terminations. (Daily Tar Heel)

Audio: Interview With Virginia Coach Mike London

WCHL’s Matt Oakes caught up with UVA head coach Mike London as his team prepares to take on the North Carolina Tar Heels this weekend in Charlottesville. London calls the game is a ‘must-win’ ACC Coastal matchup. The two discussed the academic side of student-athletes, the Cavaliers’ leading rusher Kevin Parks and how best to defend UNC QB Marquise Williams. (Chapelboro.com)
