Chansky’s Notebook: A Failure To Communicate?

Wait a minute, who’s in charge at UNC? With one week to go before Carolina opens its football season against Georgia in Atlanta, the Tar Heels do not need the distraction that was apparently caused by deposed Illinois coach Tim Beckman joining Larry Fedora’s staff as a volunteer assistant. Beckman has left the post after his appointment triggered a rash of objections and criticism. (Chapelboro.com)

UNC-Chapel Hill issues statements on Tim Beckman

Statement from Chancellor Carol L. Folt: “When I first learned yesterday that Coach Larry Fedora had invited former Illinois head coach Tim Beckman to serve as a volunteer with the football program, I was surprised and disappointed. The decision for Mr. Beckman to withdraw from his volunteer position was the right thing to do, and moving forward I don’t expect this situation to recur." (UNC.edu)

Chansky’s Notebook: Amazing Support for Carolina

In the wake of the NCAA investigation into UNC academics coming to an end, alumni and friends of the university have set new records for giving money to their school. Those two things might be unrelated, but I don’t think so. At a time when support for UNC was necessary, individual, corporate and foundational donors stepped up big time on both sides of the plate.

Q&A with sports law professor Tim Davis on UNC's Amended NOA

What (UNC is) asserting is that in both the instance of the failure to monitor as well as the lack of institutional control, there’s no underlying violation committed by UNC for the most part. What UNC’s attorneys are arguing is the following — because those courses were available to all the students and the student body, there was no extra benefit. (Daily Tar Heel)

Rams Club Celebrates Record-Setting Fundraising Year

Rams Club members contributed nearly $62 million in support of Carolina Athletics in 2015-16, a record-level of fundraising for student-athlete scholarships, facilities and other programming. Members gave $61.8 million in gifts and pledges, the largest amount in any year and an increase of 84 percent from 2014-15. The previous highest total for one year was $51.7 million in 2006-07 as part of the UNC’s Carolina First campaign. (GoHeels.com)

UNC-Chapel Hill celebrates second consecutive record fundraising year

UNC today announced $495 million in commitments in fiscal year 2016, marking the school’s best fundraising year in history and eclipsing fiscal year 2015’s previous record by nearly $50 million. “Today’s results – the highest level of fundraising support in the University’s 222-year history – is a proud moment for Carolina,” said Chancellor Carol L. Folt. (UNC.edu)

Chansky’s Notebook: No Food Projectiles, Please

Now that North Carolina has responded to the amended Notice of Allegations and Lew Margolis has told us that the Tar Heels should forfeit every victory back to the Choo Choo Justice era, Bubba’s staff has been working on some more really important stuff this summer hoping to increase attendance or concession revenue. Not sure which. (Chapelboro.com)

Judge drops NCAA from lawsuit filed by ex-UNC athletes

A federal judge dismissed a lawsuit seeking to hold the NCAA partly responsible for UNC's academic scandal. U.S. District Court Judge Loretta C. Biggs stated attorneys for former women's basketball player Rashanda McCants and ex-football player Devon Ramsay hadn't proven that the NCAA had a legal obligation to ensure the soundness of classes at UNC. (Associated Press)

UNC owes nothing in NCAA response

Now that it’s clear that the NCAA has no power to intervene in UNC’s academic failures, calls for UNC to “do the right thing” by pulling down banners or hamstringing their own athletic programs will surely start to roll in. While this nuanced ending robs us of the tidy closure that we all deserved after sitting through years of this mess, nothing is owed to anyone in UNC’s NCAA response. (SportsChannel 8)

Chansky’s Notebook: Did The NCAA Bury Evidence?

Despite the fact that the NCAA enforcement staff had previously agreed UNC’s outside counsel could access all materials relevant to the investigation via a secure website, this information was not included, contrary to the requirements of NCAA Bylaw 19.5.9. They were discovered by the university only because its representatives traveled to the national office to review the physical files personally. (Chapelboro.com)

Bethel: A (Counter) Q&A on the UNC Scandal

Following UNC’s response to the NCAA’s amended notice of allegations this week, I believe now is an appropriate time to clarify the issues further for those still trying to discern fact from fiction. Rather than develop my own set of questions for a Q&A, I’ve decided to counter N&O reporter Dan Kane’s Q&A from earlier this year. (Unverified, the Film)

UNC following strategy originated by Tarkanian vs. NCAA

Much has changed in the decades since former UNLV basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian filed a celebrated law suit challenging the extent of the NCAA’s authority over a college’s internal operations, but it’s interesting that UNC is following a similar strategy – one that led to a landmark ruling in favor of the NCAA. (WRAL Sports Fan)

UNC Response Challenges NCAA Missteps

The NCAA enforcement process operates under different guidelines than the U.S. legal system, although both methods require a strict adherence to the rules. UNC detailed its meticulous approach in applying the NCAA’s constitution and bylaws in its Amended Notice of Allegations response, while also highlighting the enforcement staff’s procedural errors. (Inside Carolina)

Reactions to the UNC’s NOA Response

UNC’s NOA response to the NCAA was released yesterday. Based on several valid arguments, UNC shrugged off many of the charges, much to the dismay of some. Or the delight, depending on your perspective. So how did everyone react to the document? Well… (SportsChannel 8)

UNC finally goes on defense against NCAA

Part of the penalty already paid by UNC was six years of largely inaccurate media coverage, which the university’s athletics programs, especially the football and men’s basketball teams, have weathered remarkably well. But that coverage established a false narrative that continues to this day — and is why those paying attention part-time expect UNC to get the electric chair. (The Robesonian)
