And because I knew this was coming, I’m not even pissed.

NCAA verdict in North Carolina academic case: No violations, penalties for UNC

The critical point, as far as the NCAA is concerned, is that the general student body at North Carolina was benefitting from courses in African and Afro-American Studies that required little attendance and almost no work. UNC student-athletes took those courses in droves over the years, but the NCAA ultimately stuck to its guidelines and viewed the system academic misconduct as a university issue. It ultimately decided it could not stick this case, from an NCAA standpoint, to North Carolina’s athletic department.

Disgusted, yes.  But not pissed.

Wanna know the funniest part?  SACS (the academic police for universities around here) had already concluded it was an athletics problem, so they got away with it on the academic side as well.

Are you not entertained??????

But way to go, NCAA.  You’ve basically just given every school the greenlight to do this kinda stuff in the future.

Thank goodness their players didn’t sell the comp tix and sneakers tho. (no one but King Hippo will get that one, but it’s worth it to make him giggle).

Commit academic fraud for a small part of the student population – bad.
Commit widespread academic fraud that affects the entire student population – good.

Got it.

It’s about 1,000 times MOAR evil than the Ginger Hammer can even masturbatorily dream about making the NFL.

This is why I don’t fear the NCAA will do anything to Arizona for this FBI scandal. The NCAA knows what’s good for business and they’ll always work to protect that.

It’s funny that you think Arizona has the kind of “Most Favoured Nation” status that U*NC does. Yinz and Louisville are gonna get it without lube. We can’t have any black indentured servants sharing in our giant money pile, after all.*

*U*NC and Dook pay everybody too, but nobody will ever “catch” them.

In fact, I would venture this whole “sting” is about three things:

1) Driving prices back down.
2) Eliminating the “blue bloods” competition in the paid athlete market.
3) Stopping momentum for the logical “why the shit don’t we pay these guys above the table” movement, making high D-1 the semi-pro league it already is.
