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)

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.

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)

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)

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)
