National perspective on UNC amended allegations focused on basketball
UNC released the NCAA's amended notice of allegations on Monday, jump-starting a case that has been stalled in procedural limbo since August.

Regardless, national pundits did their best to interpret the release of amended allegations.
UNC's NOA Shifts Blame Away From Academic Support Counselors
The NCAA softened its stance on the role that ASPSA counselors played in the AFAM scandal in its amended notice of allegations to the University of North Carolina on Monday.

UNC's Amended NOA Better Aligns with Bylaws
Without evidence to suggest the counselors’ complicity in the AFAM paper courses, the NCAA’s allegation was not based on a specific bylaw.

It was replaced by a failure to monitor charge relating to ASPSA and the AFAM department.
