How the perception around UNC’s academic scandal has shifted in the media
The biggest problems with cheering on the NCAA to hammer UNC: you’re cheering on the NCAA.

Chansky’s Notebook: Matter of Saving Face
UNC responded so well, it may have to take the NCAA to court.

That may not matter in a process famous for being made up as it goes along.
UNC AD Bubba Cunningham: 'Exhaust the Process'

UNC maintains NCAA overreach in latest NCAA response
UNC maintained its stance on NCAA overreach in their most recent response to a third Notice of Allegations stemming from a years-long academic scandal.
