Williams, Doherty spoke with investigators; Rashad McCants did not

UNC coach Roy Williams and former UNC coach Matt Doherty both spoke with investigators looking into academic fraud centered around AFAM paper classes. But Rashad McCants — an outspoken player except when investigators came calling — did not cooperate. The AFAM classes were offered as far back as during Dean Smith’s tenure, but Smith and his successor, Bill Guthridge, were not available because of health reasons. (Sporting News)

Sylvia Hatchell Stresses Key Elements To Success In '14-15

When it comes to her team this year, four things stand out to Sylvia Hatchell. "We have leadership, we've got experience, we've got depth, and great chemistry," the Hall of Fame coach told reporters Wednesday at ACC Women's Basketball Media Day in Greensboro. Hatchell returns to the sidelines after stepping away in October of last season to treat her diagnosis of leukemia. (GoHeels.com)

The Wainstein report: What we now know

What we learned from the Wainstein report: Student athletes accounted for 47.6 percent of the enrollment in those paper classes. Claims made by former basketball player Rashad McCants of grade changes weren't substantiated, Wainstein found. A major root of all the problems, Wainstein said, was a failure of oversight by the university. (Carolina Blue)

College Basketball 2014-15: ACC Predictions and Awards

Athlon has projected Duke and Carolina to finish Nos. 1-2 in the ACC thanks to the arrival of potential All-America center Jahlil Okafor in Durham and an experienced roster in Chapel Hill. If Duke and North Carolina are going to reassert their dominance in the league this season, rarely has the path been so difficult. (Athlon Sports)

Report aftermath: No closure for UNC athletics

With the release of Kenneth Wainstein’s report detailing the paper class system in the UNC Department of African and Afro-American Studies, the academic side of campus can begin the process of moving on. But there will be no such closure for the athletic side, which is in the midst of an NCAA investigation and must deal with the unsettling reality of how responsible UNC’s athletic advising staff was for pushing athletes to the fraudulent courses. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Wainstein Report Details AFAM Fallout

Former U.S. Justice Department official Kenneth Wainstein’s 131-page report told a narrative based on former AFAM department administrator Deborah Crowder's testimony in which she created a “shadow curriculum” – paper classes with no faculty member involved in managing the course – to “lend a helping hand to struggling students.” (Inside Carolina)

Highlights of the Wainstein Report

Kenneth Wainstein released the results of his investigation into the UNC AFAM paper class scandal. The report is a very thorough laying bare of the AFAM scandal including the roles of administrative assistant Deborah Crowder, former department head Julius Nyang'oro and various other individuals at UNC.

Probe reveals scope of academic fraud at UNC

More than 3,100 students — nearly half of them athletes — enrolled in classes they didn't have to show up for and received artificially inflated grades in what an investigator called a "shadow curriculum" that lasted nearly two decades at the University of North Carolina. The report released Wednesday by former high-ranking U.S. Justice Department official Kenneth Wainstein found more far-reaching academic fraud than previous investigations. (Associated Press)

UNC report: Sham classes pushed

An report commissioned by UNC says school academic advisers steered athletes into sham classes over an 18-year period, but does not directly implicate coaches or athletic administrators in the scheme. The report, released Wednesday, says academic advisers in UNC's athletic department colluded with a manager in the African and Afro-American Studies department to take classes to boost their grade point averages and keep them eligible. (ESPN.com)

Wainstein’s report into irregular classes released

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on Wednesday announced the results of an independent investigation conducted by former federal prosecutor Kenneth Wainstein into past academic irregularities at Carolina and took immediate action to address the findings. Wednesday’s actions build on the reforms already undertaken in the years since first learning about the issues. (UNC.edu)

Red-hot Marquise Williams hopes UNC can replicate last year's finish

Marquise Williams had helped engineer a 6-1 finish for the Tar Heels last season following a 1-5 start, raising 2014 expectations that made the program's 2-4 start this fall all the more disappointing. Still, with Williams back in charge with five games to go, last year's finish is a good starting point for how UNC can turn things around again. (ESPN.com)

I Can’t Quit You, UNC Football

Carolina is only 1-2 in ACC play and still very much in contention for the #WideOpenCoastal. I’m telling myself that UNC’s only real “bad loss” was against Virginia Tech and that was when Fedora was still rotating quarterbacks. None of the remaining opponents are as formidable as ECU, Clemson, or Notre Dame. In other words I am in full blown relapse mode. I can’t quit you UNC football. (Raleigh & Company)

Scouting the Schedule: A Look at UNC's Remaining Opponents

At 3-4, UNC would have to win three of its last five games to secure bowl eligibility. The good news is there are no monsters on the schedule like there were in the first six games; on the other hand, there are no real lemons either. Here is a look at how the remaining five teams on UNC's schedule made out this week and where their seasons stand: (Tar Heel Blog)
