NCAA Suspends UNC's Kendric Burney And Deunta Williams

The NCAA has finally started doling out sanctions in its never-ending investigation into widespread allegations of improper benefits for players in multiple big-name football programs. SB Nation's Carolina March details the suspensions of cornerback Kendric Burney and safety Deunta Williams:

Kendric Burney has been suspended for six games for receiving $1,333 in illicit benefits, primarily trips to California, Atlanta and Las Vegas. Deunta Williams will be out four games as punishment for taking $1,426 in benefits, for two trips to California. It appears Burney has the more severe punishment because he received his goodies from "an individual who meets the NCAA definition of an agent," while Williams' were merely "preferential treatment violations associated with visiting a former North Carolina football student-athlete."
[...]
UNC will appeal both suspensions, but barring some sort of reversal, Williams will be eligible to play in the next ACC game against Clemson, while Burney will return against Miami on October 23rd.

The bulk of UNC's players held out since the season opener remain in legal limbo. For more on this unfolding investigation, stay tuned to this StoryStream and to Carolina March.
