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)

UNC's NCAA allegations, what they say, what they don't

North Carolina is in what what feels like the longest game in the world, athletics director Bubba Cunningham said Thursday. And the Tar Heels are at halftime. With the public release of the NCAA’s notice of allegations, UNC comes closer to figuring out what damage two decades of alleged academic fraud will run with the NCAA. Sort of. (Greensboro News & Record)

NCAA gets 'A' for building case, but punishing UNC doomed to fail

That the NCAA’s understaffed enforcement division was handed one of the more complex cases in its undistinguished history and managed to concoct a coherent list of charges was a massive accomplishment for its personnel. It is not the document some of UNC’s rivals and the indefatigable anti-athletics movement might have dreamed of, but neither is it the capitulation that seemed likely. (Sporting News)

Statements On NCAA Notice Of Allegations From Fedora, Hatchell, and Williams

Everyone who loves Carolina is truly saddened by these allegations. We aspire to and work toward meeting higher standards than the actions that warranted this notice. Our university and numerous outside groups have looked at every aspect of our academic and athletic life. As a result, Carolina has implemented scores of new processes and checks and balances that have undoubtedly made us a better university. Hopefully, we will never again receive such a notice. (GoHeels.com)

Examining UNC's Notice of Allegations

Given the context of the allegations, there’s really no way to predict what penalties or sanctions will stem from this report. The two charges of lack of institutional control and providing impermissible benefits open the door for just about any penalty. The NCAA’s framing of the case as a machine for providing impermissible benefits is an interesting angle. (Carolina Blue)
