UNC and Bama named among others.  Again UNC?  I’d love to see Bama vacate titles because of this.

The agent thing regarding UNC has already been dealt with via the first NCAA probation and scholarship reductions. How the other schools are dealt with will tell the tale. NCAA had a deep interest for a long time in UNC. It will be interesting to say the least. UNC has already paid. Let’s see how it goes for others.

Already paid for this latest issue?  Stemming from the basketball pay for play which broke late last year?  I’m skeptical.

Obviously UNC lawyers are much better than the ones the NCAA has.  Wouldn’t surprise me is they stay away from UNC due to PSTD from the last bout.

Nah, UNC just demanded the NCAA stick to its own rule book and treat the school the same way it did others who had similar things happen. What a concept.

This is old news and the insinuation that Carolina is somehow going “down” for the latest scandal is factually inaccurate.

You do realize Merle Code went to Clemson right?

The UNC connection was football only, and the NCAA punished the football team for this long before anything from the FBI. Not everything coming out is new, and as for UNC their connection with agents during Butch Davis’ time there was what was referenced. They were put on probation during Fedora’s first years there for that with a reduction in scholarships. There’s nothing new with UNC, and there’s no basketball involved at all. The fact is the Nike stuff will probably come to get some bigger schools on the hook. UNC just wasn’t good enough to keep it secret when it actually happened.

To be fair our assistant basketball coach, Smith, was also in on this and made an extremely vague comment about Clemson football.  All while admitting he had illegal contact with Zion and pulled an embarrassingly childish move trying to keep Brad from having any inclination that he violated rules trying to get Zion.

I vote to cancel all basketball operations at Clemson.  Bulldoze little john and put in more football parking.

His statements are so dumb and vague.  He’s just talking to talk now.  Football will come out sweaky clean.
