NCAA "could not conclude North Carolina violated NCAA rules"

NCAA

North Carolina avoided major sanctions after the NCAA could not conclude the school violated academic rules when it made available deficient Department of African and Afro-American Studies "paper courses" to the general student body, including student-athletes.

Longtime ESPN analyst Dick Vitale called the NCAA's ruling on the University of North Carolina academic violations "embarrassing" and "unreal" in a series of tweets Friday, after the university received no punishment.

Now, having overcome the NCAA's inexcusably long investigation while still maintaining the school's tradition of excellence on the court, players and fans alike are thrilled. The NCAA built its case not on allegations of academic fraud, though, but of impermissible benefits - the alleged special access to the courses, and not the courses themselves, central to the NCAA's case.

"However, NCAA policy is clear".

"A singular principle allowed UNC room to make its claims and, ultimately, limits the panel's ability to conclude that academic fraud occurred", the Public Infractions Decision said.

Before the suspension, the company told THR: "We take seriously any questions about the conduct of our employees". In a statement Thursday, Amazon says Roy Price's leave of absence is effective immediately.

"While student-athletes likely benefited from the courses, so did the general student body", Sankey said.

The only violation the committee saw was the lack of cooperation from a former department chair and a former secretary - and two breaches of confidentiality that will not be penalized.

While the NCAA argued that the courses were geared toward keeping student-athletes eligible, the university countered that the irregular courses were available to all students.

And still, the Tar Heels managed to accomplish what most programs can't, even when not under the NCAA's microscope. The football program received a one-year postseason ban, lost 15 scholarships over a three-year period and also was forced to vacate 15 wins in March of 2012. New information led to another notice of allegations being issued in December of 2016 that included charges against the men's basketball and football programs. Your championships are staying at UNC Chapel Hill. "We appreciate the hard work and effort from so many people in presenting the facts of this the case to the Committee". Men's basketball coach Roy Williams, women's basketball coach Sylvia Hatchell and football coach Larry Fedora, in addition to athletic director Bubba Cunningham and chancellor Carol Folt - were all in attendance. Nyang'oro received a five-year show cause lasting until October 12, 2022, while the NCAA is making a notation of Crowder's refusal to cooperate. Nyang'oro had refused to interview with NCAA investigators after the case was reopened in 2014.
