UNC gets probation from accrediting agency

A group that accredits UNC announced Thursday that it's sanctioning UNC over the so-called paper-classes scandal. Trustees of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges decided this week to put the school on probation for a year, said Belle Wheelan, the group's president. The decision cited seven different violations of the group's policies, including one that said UNC had failed to uphold a requirement to conduct itself with integrity. (Durham Herald-Sun)

News & Observer must address culture that led to misguided editorials

The News & Observer published yet another editorial on Wednesday about what the NCAA should do regarding the paper class scandal at North Carolina. Sigh. Look, I really don’t want to be “that guy” who writes takedown pieces any time someone says something bad about UNC. That being said, this editorial, like the Patrick O’Neill op-ed, must be looked at section-by-section to clarify a few things. (Tar Heel Depot)

Everyone should agree: UNC faculty lost institutional control

However, there is a point that has been lost in much of the blame, finger pointing, public relations maneuvering, and the thousands of words written about this issue. This point was clear in the NOA and must be acknowledged by all parties: UNC faculty lost institutional control of the academic integrity of the university. (Higher Ed Professor)

UNC could receive update on accreditation status Thursday

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill could hear on Thursday from an accreditation organization that has been reviewing the findings of a report that detailed nearly two decades of academic fraud at the university. In a 224-page report submitted in January to the Southern Association of College and Schools, school officials asked that the group find them in compliance with various accreditation standards.

UNC And The NCAA: A Defendable Case For The University

There's no way that the NCAA would have made a case solely on the bungled statements of debunked "whistle blower" Mary Willingham, whose credibility was shot down by an independent investigation by the University of Virginia, Minnesota and Georgia State. Nor would the NCAA have gotten in bed with Rashad McCants, whose factually-challenged charges came with ulterior motives laced with green. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

North Carolina academic scandal will end quietly, just like everyone wanted

After a four-year wait which felt like it spanned multiple decades, we finally have the full gauntlet of allegations the NCAA is levying against UNC. The allegations were made public by the school on Thursday, and UNC now has until Aug. 20 to file a formal response. The trend of everyone having to re-learn the major bullet points from this story every time something major happens will continue through at least the summer of 2015. (SB Nation)

Podcast: Talking NOA

The Notice of Allegations has been released. What is in it? What does it mean for UNC basketball and football? The Inside Carolina radio crew discusses. (Inside Carolina)

Art’s Angle: Hang On, It’s Almost Over

After reading the long-awaited Notice of Allegations, one has to wonder what took the NCAA so damn long. Sure, UNC has to treat it with the utmost respect because at the end of this endless journey, eight hardly impartial randomly picked peers from a pool of 24 will make up the Committee of Infractions and mete out penalties. And some may be from schools and conferences with an ax to grind toward Carolina. (Chapelboro.com)

Language of UNC Notice of Allegations leaves plenty of room for interpretation

Reaction to the release of UNC’s Notice of Allegations from the NCAA on Thursday was as predictable as the Tar Heels being ranked among the nation’s top 25 at the start of every college basketball season. Folks that bleed Carolina blue downplayed the five “Level I” violations mentioned in the report as no big deal. Members of the ABC crowd reveled in the impending doom that awaits their hated rival. (Wilmington Star News)

Cloud remains for UNC football amid NCAA violations

The dark cloud that's been lingering over North Carolina's football program since July 2010 will apparently remain through and perhaps beyond the 2015 season. That's not good news for UNC coach Larry Fedora, who has already navigated the Tar Heels through the negative fallout from three years of NCAA sanctions. (Fayetteville Observer)

Martin Brinkley chosen as 14th Dean of UNC School of Law

Martin H. Brinkley ’92, a partner in the law firm of Smith, Anderson, Blount, Dorsett, Mitchell & Jernigan, L.L.P. in Raleigh, North Carolina, will be the 14th dean of the UNC School of Law. Brinkley was chosen after an extensive nationwide search, led by Mike Smith ’78, dean of the UNC School of Government, and succeeds retiring Dean John Charles “Jack” Boger ’74. (UNC.edu)

Bethel: UNC's Lack of Institutional Control Not an Athletics-Driven Scandal

As expected, the NCAA has accused UNC of lacking institutional control. Anyone surprised by that allegation has not been paying careful enough attention. However, contrary to the news media’s narrative, UNC’s lack of institutional control (LOIC) was not the result of a corrupt Athletics department. Rather, UNC’s LOIC was the result of a complacent Arts & Sciences (A&S) administration. (Coaching the Mind)

Jack Williams, Former UNC Sports Information Director, Passes Away

Jack Williams, former sports information director at Carolina, passed away last weekend in Wilmington. Williams served as the Tar Heels’ SID from 1966 to 1975. He came to Chapel Hill after working at various newspapers in the state and Atlanta. Williams, a native of Durham, was a 1952 Carolina graduate. During his newspaper career he was sports editor of The Raleigh Times, The Durham Morning Herald and The Chapel Hill Weekly. (GoHeels.com)

National perspective on UNC allegations focuses on basketball

The NCAA allegations were wide in scope, but offered little in specifics when it came to individual players from individual sports. Given how consistent the governing body is in their inconsistency, this only makes it more difficult to predict possible punishment based on precedent for the Tar Heels. Regardless, national pundits who have covered previous NCAA scandals did their best to interpret the 59 pages of allegations and supplemental documents. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Four Things We Learned From the NOA

The NCAA avoided the third rail of academic fraud: Bubba Cunningham said after the release of the NOA that there really wasn't anything surprising in there, and he is correct. The payoff of the NOA was going to be how the NCAA viewed the scandal, and they chose to go the impermissible benefits route. Frankly, that was really the only card they had to play. (Tar Heel Blog)
