Hey, remember the great North Carolina Tar Heels scandal that's still not quite over yet? That's right! It's not quite over yet. The NCAA will announce Monday at 3 p.m. ET just what UNC football is in for, due to that investigation that began almost two years ago, thanks in part to Marvin Austin's digital oversharing.
UNC has already self-imposed multiple penalties, in addition to firing then-coach Butch Davis and replacing its athletic director. The Heels have vacated their 2008 and 2009 wins, put themselves on two years of probation and docked scholarships through 2014. Whether that will appease the NCAA remains to be seen, but it's quite a bit more than Ohio State saw fit to punish itself with.
Last summer, the NCAA announced multiple ineligible athletes played multiple seasons for North Carolina. The list of breaches included just about everything a college program can be busted for, from academic fraud to illegal benefits, and reading off the list of NCAA bylaws allegedly broken feels sort of like reading computer code of some sort.
We'll wait and see how hard the hammer falls.
