NCAA bans UNC from bowl game, cuts 15 scholarships

It may have took the the NCAA nearly two years to drop the hammer on North Carolina football for multiple violations including academic fraud, but today they cut into the team deep by banning them from a bowl game in 2012, cutting 15 scholarships and putting them on probation for 3 years.

Better late than never, right?

Penalties for the case include a one-year postseason ban, reduction of 15 football scholarships, vacation of records and three years probation. The former assistant coach received a three-year show-cause penalty restricting any recruiting activity.

The academic fraud violations stemmed from the former tutor constructing significant parts of writing assignments for three football student-athletes. The tutor wrote paragraphs for papers, revised drafts, composed “works-cited” pages, researched and edited content and inserted citations, among other violations. The tutor also provided more than $4,000 in impermissible benefits, including airfare and paying for outstanding parking tickets, to 11 football student-athletes after she graduated and was no longer a university employee. The tutor also refused to cooperate with the investigation.

Let’s be honest, with or without the bowl ban UNC didn’t have a chance at the national title.
