The black cloud that is the UNC athletic scandal is still hovering over the Tar Heel state. The NCAA has rendered 5 serious charges against the institution, including having a lack of institutional control, and now the accrediting body that has the power block federal funds has placed them on probation for one year.
At a meeting in Portsmouth, Virginia, the group determined that UNC failed to comply with seven key operating principals for member universities, among them: integrity, program content, control of intercollegiate athletics and academic support services. The practical effect of the sanction is that “they just have to send us more documentation to show their compliance with seven of these principals,” commission President Belle Wheelan said.
Tough times for UNC, but that’s not stopping Roy from getting that extension.
