UNC Investigation: NCAA Visited Chapel Hill Wednesday For Follow-up

It's the investigation that never ends! The NCAA is now 15 months into an investigation into impermissible benefits and academic fraud within the North Carolina Tar Heels football program, and that investigation is still ongoing. The NCAA reportedly returned to Chapel Hill on Wednesday to conduct some follow-up work on their investigation of the football program. Of course, because smoke and mirrors is the NCAA's specialty, they refused to comment on the nature of the visit.

This investigation caused a number of star players to be suspended, including now-Cleveland Browns wide receiver Greg Little, who was ruled permanently ineligible. Head Coach Butch Davis was fired over the scandal, while Athletic Director Dick Baddour resigned from his position. It's been revealed previously that ineligible athletes played entire seasons, so it's unlikely that whatever investigators were doing in Chapel Hill on Wednesday is going to turn out positive for the Tar Heels.
