NOA: But What Does It All Mean?

The NCAA levied five charges against North Carolina. The most serious charge, #AsExpected, is the dreaded Lack of Institutional Control. This stems for the schools failure to monitor the activity of some of our favorite characters in this saga, namely Jan Boxhill and the African-American Studies department, over the past 18 years. The charge is not directed at one specific sport and is as big of an indictment on the academic side of the school as it is the athletic department. (Tar Heel Depot)

UNC-Chapel Hill releases NCAA notice of allegations

The University has released the notice of allegations from the NCAA.

Carolina received the notice of allegations on May 20, 2015, and will respond within the NCAA’s 90-day deadline. (UNC.edu)

The Notice of Allegations Watch Begins in Earnest

If you had Thursday in the Notice of Allegations Public Release Pool then you are probably going to collect. UNC received the notice of allegations from the NCAA back on May 21st and announced to the world it had received it on May 22nd. UNC also announced at that point it would release the document when it was good and ready. So what can we expect from the NOA's release? (Tar Heel Blog)

NCAA notice may parse UNC scandal as books vs. balls

The department secretary who masterminded the irregular classes at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill created the shoddy curriculum to help both general students and student-athletes alike, according to an investigation led by former federal prosecutor Kenneth Wainstein.

Art’s Angle: Why The Wait?

Maybe they’ve run out of Sharpies at UNC. You know, the thick black markers used when names and other private information are redacted from documents before they are released to the public. Why else would it be taking Carol Folt and Bubba Cunningham so long to release a “publishable” version of the NOA to the news media and public? (Chapelboro.com)

UNC may be on hot seat, but not Williams and Fedora

The biggest misconception about the NCAA’s ongoing investigation of UNC is that basketball coach Roy Williams and football coach Larry Fedora could wind up losing their jobs as a result of the findings and/or punishments. That’s not going to happen, nor should it. In reality, no coach is on the “hot seat” at Carolina. The school is on the hot seat and put itself in that situation from years of misconduct.

Roy Williams says he hasn't seen NCAA allegations

North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams says he hasn't seen what's in the notice of allegations from the NCAA in connection with the school's academic fraud scandal.

Beth Miller was there when women’s sports was a struggle

Beth Miller is set to retire on July 1 after 40 years at North Carolina, the preponderance as an administrator. Miller won consecutive ACC volleyball titles from 1980 through 1983 and also briefly coached softball at UNC. But she is most notable as a pioneer in shepherding women’s athletics from second-class status to relative equality in contemporary intercollegiate sports. (Charlotte Observer)

The NOA and the Chicken or the Egg

Friday's announcement that UNC has finally received a notice of allegations from the NCAA means we are one step closer to bringing some resolution to the sword of Damocles that has hung over the UNC athletics program for nearly four years. While the receipt of the NOA is merely the first step in a long process, it does mean that the wheels are finally in motion for bringing some sort of closure to The Great Unpleasantness.
