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.
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.
The 5 Allegations Levied By The NCAA
It is alleged that beginning in the 2002 fall semester and continuing through the 2011 summer semester, the institution provided impermissible benefits to student-athletes that were not generally available to the student body.
Bubba Cunningham Press Conference Notes
The following are notes from UNC athletic director Bubba Cunningham's teleconference held Thursday afternoon following UNC's release of the NCAA's NOA earlier in the day.
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.
UNC-Chapel Hill releases NCAA notice of allegations
The University has released the notice of allegations from the NCAA. The University posted the 59-page notice and hundreds of pages of exhibits on the Carolina Commitment website after review by the Public Records Office to protect privacy rights mandated by federal and state laws. Carolina received the notice of allegations on May 20, 2015, and will respond within the NCAA’s 90-day deadline.
UNC announces new working groups to oversee ethical behavior
Following the release of the report by Kenneth Wainstein, Chancellor Carol L. Folt announced several initiatives to prevent the recurrence of academic irregularities and to strengthen Carolina. To that end, two working groups were formed in May 2015—the Policy and Procedures Working Group and the Ethics and Integrity Working Group, charged with reinforcing ethical high-integrity behavior throughout the University.
Dave Glenn breaks down what’s in store for UNC (audio)
David Glenn spent a segment of his show discussing the UNC scandal and what type of punishment may be in store for the Tar Heels. Dave explained that anyone expecting a harsh punishment for Carolina may be in for a surprise, based on the other litigation that the NCAA is currently involved in defending.
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?
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?
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. The school said May 22 it had received the notice of allegations and would release it publicly after redactions to comply with privacy laws. Williams says he believes the release will occur soon.
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.
UNC still reviewing Notice of Allegations, release on hold
One week after receiving a formal Notice of Allegations from the NCAA, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is continuing to review the extensive document. Chancellor Carol L. Folt said Thursday that the document will not be released until next week at the earliest. “I’m committed to getting it out as soon as possible...but there’s a little bit of work to be done,” Folt said.
