    I don't know about this one....I am looking forward to watching them struggle. The next best thing after watching Duke win, is watching the cheats lose. Within a couple of years we all may see Clemson go into the dean dome and collect a win for the first time. How glorious it will be!

    Tip o' the hat to these two guys.

    If you've been following this thread, you'll know that these two guys have put extraordinary effort into this, keeping us informed on the latest info, and explaining how life ought to work. The effort should be recognized.

    I'm a little worried about them though. What will they do now? I guess there's the appeal. But has some loved one secured the knives and razor blades just in case UNC-CH skates?

    Jokes aside, your contributions have been informative, inflammatory, and sustaining. It's been the informative part...

    Hope you aren't disappointed.

    Damn, how much we all hope your aren't disappointed.

    not sure what i want more tomorrow....UNC to get hammered, or Sunil Gulati and Bruce Arena to resign.
    as bad as Duke <anything> is, at least they didn't miss qualifying for the world cup.

    No brainer for me. Coming from Mount Hatemore, quick and easy response: bury the h**ls.

    After the L to T&T, the USMNT will take care of itself shortly we all hope. I have no hatred for them.
    [redacted] them and the horses they rode in on.

    Not fully (women are going to be in trouble) but the Men's team will likely see few penalties. NCAA will be able to show they are tough and still allow one of their premier teams to continue on.

    Thanks for the kind words. I guess if they skate then this is over, but I don't expect that, so we will have appeals as far as the eye can see. But even before that we will have UNC being asked by the COI to identify and list ineligible players for purposes of vacating wins. Plenty of drama ahead.

    I'm going to the NC Zoo with my wife and two kids. I doubt i'll be online before late night firday to discuss the size (or lack thereof) that falls upon UNC. Priorities.

    I don't think they're gonna skate. I don't know if it'll be what they deserve (vacating every win, including every natty and every final four appearance from 2003 through 2009), but I think it'll be ugly. The NCAA's tone in their rebuttal to UNC advertised that they were not amused with UNC's attitude. UNC took the problem from "it's a big problem showing lack of institutional control which, at least, the University tried to correct when they realized what was going on" to "the institution absolutely made the decision to set up this sham, then to avoid correcting it or even acknowledging it when it all came to light." While the duration and scope of the academic/athletic cheating is unprecedented, so is UNC's defiant attitude.

    I assume UNC will appeal and/or sue, so this won't be over on Friday. But I do suspect the punishment they receive will have the distinct flavor of the NCAA attempting to show that it means business, and that it doesn't appreciate the way UNC has handled any of this.

    FWIW, I also think the DOJ/Adidas scandal is not good for UNC. The NCAA has every reason to show that it has some relevance as a governing body. Their first opportunity they have to do so is the punishment they decide to lay down on a high publicity case that is generally seen as the most blatant, widespread, and ongoing cheating scandal in the history of college sports. If I were a Carolina fan, I'd be nervous.

    They've always had the classes. It's just that only the athletes were notified of/automatically signed up for the ones having optional attendance and requiring optional work.

    So, UNC received today their version of the decision. If they're right now doing a victory dance over there how likely is it that none of that leaked out?

    Edit: or do they receive their copy tomorrow? I guess that's it. They were notified this morning that they will receive it tomorrow.
