Chansky: UNC ‘Happy’ with Notice of Allegations

UNC received its long-awaited Notice of Allegations from the NCAA Friday, and all indications are that Carolina is “happy” with what that NOA says. Sources close to the situation say that the football and men’s basketball program escaped allegations that would lead to the vacating of victories and (in basketball’s case) a national championship looking back and has not been charged with any violations that would result in a post-season ban and loss of scholarships moving forward.

A synopsis of UNC and the NOA

If the Notice of Allegations indicates there were no impermissible benefits, sport-specific allegations or player eligibility issues, that would likely be a positive for Tar Heel supporters regarding potential sanctions as they relate to banners, vacating wins or other sport-specific penalties. On the flip side, there is a good chance the NCAA will hit the school with the dreaded Lack of Institutional Control. Outside of sounding ominous, most folks really don’t know what that entails.

UNC announces two initiatives to help service members and veterans

From executive development leadership courses for service members to a physician’s assistant degree program designed for returning veterans, the University of North Carolina has been dedicated to bringing education to the armed forces.

The UNC-NCAA Dilemma

There are previous NCAA cases that provide a possible precedent with UNC’s situation. The NCAA determined that Auburn University did not commit academic fraud in 2005-06 by allowing students, including athletes, to take independent study classes taught by Sociology department chair Thomas Petee and adult education professor James Witte that required minimal, if any, time in the classroom.

Report: UNC, NCAA say plaintiffs have no legal claim

Attorneys for the University of North Carolina and the NCAA argued in federal court filings on Friday that "regrettable actions" concerning irregular classes taken by Tar Heels athletes do not constitute legal action. The suit was brought by former women’s basketball player Rashanda McCants and former football player Devon Ramsay and is being led by the attorney who won the Ed O’Bannon names, images and likenesses case against the NCAA.

UNC to learn accreditation status next month

UNC will learn next month where it stands with the accreditation agency Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) in wake of the Wainstein report on academic fraud. SACS President Dr. Belle Wheelan told ABC11 on Thursday, "the board decisions will be made public the afternoon of June 11." SACS first put the university on notice in 2011 when claims of academic impropriety first surfaced. (ABC 11)

Bethel: Jay Smith and Public Records

Now that I have released the emails Jay Smith wants, perhaps he will return the favor. Since last July, I have been waiting for the public records office to fulfill several requests I made (through attorneys) for communications between Smith and a number of other UNC employees. Delay now only serves to protect Smith, whose primary contribution to UNC the past two years has been to defame the Athletics department and individuals associated with it. (Coaching the Mind)

Faculty Executive Committee proposes new athletics task force

The Faculty Executive Committee discussed the formation of another group tasked with examining the University’s athletic program at its meeting Monday. The Faculty Council asked the committee to form a group that would anticipate changes in college sports and work to protect the University from further damages to its integrity. (Daily Tar Heel)

Folt believes she should keep her opinions private

In an interview last week, Folt said she considers her leadership style to be “consensus-building.” “I like to work with people, and I think there is always a problem when you start off with the largest voice in the room stating their opinion,” Folt said. (Daily Tar Heel)

Mark Emmert Keeps Saying Some Interesting Things

NCAA President Mark Emmert met with the AP sports editors on Thursday at Syracuse. During the course of the discussion, Emmert was asked about Syracuse's NCAA troubles and also about UNC's.

Boxill’s role in academic scandal still under fire

Six months after an administrative assistant was positioned at the center of UNC’s academic scandal, the involvement of respected professor Jan Boxill remains in question. Boxill taught 160 independent study courses in the philosophy department during her eight years at the University, an unusually high number, according to the philosophy department chairman, who could count on one hand the number of independent studies he’s taught. (Daily Tar Heel)

UNC asks that student-athlete suit be dismissed

Lawyers for UNC on Thursday asked that a lawsuit filed by former student-athletes be dismissed, laying out a number of legal arguments that, in essence, questioned the validity of the students' right to sue. Four men and women who played for the Tar Heels are suing the university for breach of contract, among other things, arguing that it failed to provide them with a promised education. (WRAL.com)
