NCAA joins UNC academic probe

CHAPEL HILL -- The NCAA has officially joined the academic portion of UNC's investigation into possible misconduct.

UNC spokesman Steve Kirschner said an NCAA enforcement representative has been on campus condiucting interviews on the academic matters with UNC for the last two days.

Originally, UNC was conducting the academic portion of the investigation as part of the joint review with the NCAA, but athletics director Dick Baddour had said the NCAA might be brought in more formally at a later date.

An atom bomb would have less effect on UNC at this point. The NCAA might as well buy a house in Chapel Hill.

I can't wait to see the Wolfpack response when this investigation is taken system-wide. And rest assured it will be. Think NCSU has anything to hide or their academic operations are any different than Carolina's?

That's right Walmart Nation go ahead and try to deflect blame, nothing to see here.

You don't think NCSU and ECU both have been doing their own digging since this all broke. Maybe when Chuckles the Clown was in charge but the Marine runs a clean program.

This could mean a lot or a little; the NCAA doesn't have much jurisdiction in academic matters, unless the school is blatantly scamming academics. Then it can become fuel for other fires. So this means the NCAA is looking for stuff to pile on with the agent stuff or hasn't really found much yet and are grasping at straws. Student honor courts are tough and anyone that thinks it would be a sham coverup is wrong; honor courts at most universities are very strict and hold academics sacred, which is why the universities have them. So far, mild suspensions and cleared players have produced little fire in the face of all the smoke. Blake will either be more smoke or a whole lot of fire.

Looks like the Yahoo article was more smoke than fire.
