The NCAA may be headed back to Chapel Hill to investigate the North Carolina football program. According to a report by the Raleigh News and Observer, many Tar Heel football players enrolled in a virtually non-existent summer class.
Athletic Dept. and University officials at North Carolina deserve to be crushed here: http://t.co/1hDvdtYE

From the Raleigh News and Observer:
The records show that in the summer of 2011, 19 students enrolled in AFAM 280: Blacks in North Carolina, 18 of them players on the football team, the other a former player. They also show that academic advisers assigned to athletes helped the players enroll in the class, which is the subject of a criminal investigation.
The advisers also knew that there would be no instruction.
