Catfishing the Banner Chasers

In the course of just over two weeks, an anonymous person tweeting from a brand new, unverified Twitter account, worked his way into the inner circle of those at the center of trying to bring UNC down based on little more than an apparent knowledge of NCAA bylaws and speaking the language a certain group of rabid fans wanted to hear.

U.S. women’s soccer teammates praise Crystal Dunn

UNC Exam Spoilers…for Fall 1885

Could you pass finals at UNC in 1885? While looking through the University Papers this week, I found these exams administered at the end of the fall semester in 1885. There is one for Chemistry, Astronomy, Physics and English. Some questions would be familiar to a student today, but others, not so much. Can you tell us “what are the defects of our Alphabet?” (UNC.edu)

UNC's Amended NOA Better Aligns with Bylaws

Without evidence to suggest the counselors’ complicity in the AFAM paper courses, the NCAA’s allegation was not based on a specific bylaw.

UNC AD Bubba Cunningham did not want to speculate on potential sanctions.

Takeaways from new NCAA NOA

UNC's amended NOA doesn't mention men's basketball or football

In 13 pages of allegations and wrongdoing, North Carolina’s amended Notice of Allegations from the NCAA is more poignant for what it doesn’t include: any reference to football or men’s basketball.

(Greensboro News & Record)

UNC conspiracy theories in NCAA case may be fun, but they're all wrong

The most popular theory regarding this delay is that UNC conveniently discovered additional violations so that the case could be delayed beyond the point where a very good Tar Heels team would be forced to miss the 2016 NCAA Tournament. This is ridiculous. (Sporting News)

UNC Amended Notice of Allegations Released; No Mention of Men's Basketball, Football

North Carolina received the document on Monday morning from the NCAA and released it to the public on Monday afternoon.
