UNC set to move past academic probe, not celebrating ruling

The long-running NCAA academic case has ended with UNC facing no penalty. Still, even with what had to be the best possible outcome — a weight being lifted that has loomed over the Chapel Hill campus for years — school officials greeted the news more with cautious relief than exuberance.

Sankey's Wainstein Report Play Comes Undone

Greg Sankey did not share his role in admitting the Wainstein Report into evidence with media on Friday, although he acknowledged UNC was right to question the report’s accuracy.

NCAA Was Right to Not Levy a Heavy Punishment

I completely understand the NCAA’s decision. The job of the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions is not to be outraged or decide when something is morally wrong. The committee is supposed to determine if NCAA violations have occurred and then, what penalties should be administered. And if you look closely you can understand why the NCAA did what it did.

Turner's Take: Exhale

Refreshingly, the NCAA Committee on Infractions panel did not assume a narrative, was open to the idea that these classes were not created and maintained specifically for student-athletes, and ruled as such. And so, here we are. Clear of the cloud. Tonight at Late Night with Roy, they'll raise a 2017 NCAA men's basketball national championship banner. (Argyle Report)
