The NCAA announced they'd be making inquiry into the University of North Carolina's football program, and in the most inevitable development in NCAA history, it was announced today that the NCAA has uncovered rules violations.
We don't know which rules just yet, but North Carolina announced on Tuesday that the football program has received the dreaded Notice of Allegations from the NCAA and its investigation team. And considering the widespread allegations of cheating, improper benefits, and illegal contact with agents, it's not surprising that the NCAA's uncovered some violations. The question now centers on what, exactly, the NCAA found, and to what extent they'll punish the Tar Heel football program.
Given some of the controversy that's been hanging over the team in Chapel Hill, the violations uncovered could be fairly serious in this case. Whatever happens, UNC will have plenty of opportunities to appeal.
For now, though, we'll have to wait and see exactly what the NCAA's come up with.
But make no mistake: An "NCAA inquiry" is one thing, but a Notice of Allegations takes things to another level. The trouble just got serious for the Tar Heel football program.
