This NCAA scandal is about a guy who was caught giving UNC players $ in '15 and then turned informant for FBI. He then went to other schools

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My take: Pretty soon the ACC will be that cozy 8 team league the old guys pine for03-lmfao

Gave money to Robert Quinn and those guys in 2010, cost Butch Davis his job. UNC punished for the whole John Blake fiasco. This is totally different.

Different better or worse? Not following you.

The guy who was the informant was financial advisor that worked with agent that was paying UNC players in 2010 when Butch Davis was coach. It is completely unrelated to this FBI investigation. Trying to link UNC to the FBI investigation through this guy and his dealing with Blake and the agent in 2010 is false and dishonest.

Well you better tell ESPN...

http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketb...corruption

Quote:In 2015, Blazer was also linked to an investigation of improper cash payments to University of North Carolina football players. A grand jury indicted former Tar Heels player Christopher Hawkins for violating the state's sports agent law by giving money to a UNC player and illegally contacting another about signing a contract. During the investigation, former UNC linebacker Robert Quinn told state investigators that Hawkins gave Quinn money to steer him to Blazer and agent Peter Schaffer, according to court documents. Kendric Burney, the other former UNC player, told investigators that Hawkins arranged and attended Burney's meetings with Blazer and Schaffer.
The payments happened in 2010, his trial & conviction was in 2015 along with a couple of other guys I believe. So no this us not related to the current case just another ABC'er talking out the side of his neck

It doesn't seem fair to hold any school responsible for something out of their control.

Now if they learned of the infraction and did nothing or the wrong thing, they should be held responsible for that action or inaction.

This guy was banned from any campus in the state of North Carolina, so it would be highly unlikely he had any links to the university in 2015

There have been countless NCAA recruiting violations that have touched more schools than not over the past several decades. This isn't even a recent phenomenon with all of the TV money that has washed over college sports: these top athletes have ALWAYS been underpaid (as you can't get a lower salary than $0) and, as a result, they have ALWAYS been easy prey for those that can provide them with income that's more in line with what they're actually worth in the marketplace.

Until that economic imbalance is fixed for the PLAYERS, we'll always see scandals like this one. When athletes aren't getting paid what they would be worth in the free market, they're going to constantly get offered ways to bridge that gap by boosters, gamblers, coaches and agents (who in turn are trying to parlay that money given to players into financial gains for themselves).

If you go back to the thirties you'll find that the first Heisman winner, Jay Berwanger from the University of Chicago, turned down a pro contract from George Halas because he thought he could earn a better living at a rubber factory or something.

At the end of the day the only way to eliminate these issues is to eliminate college athletics or essentially scale them down to being about as big as college baseball. As long as university athletics remain an avenue to acquire money and fame with little risk of severe consequences, there will always be a strong incentive to find a way around the rules by exploiting workers paid below-market wages. No real change will come out of this imo, and that's just sad. At the end of the day a university is not there to make boosters happy and churn out pro athletes, it's to educate - we live in a weird society.

Sorry the NCAA has a catch all called:

Lack of Institutional Control

You can delegate authority but you can not delegate responsibility.

Yeah, can't wait to see the programming from that 8 team ACC Network...03-lmfao

Think ESPN will mind?

The ACC network will just have 30 for 30 documentaries about the Miami vs NCAA, UNC vs NCAA, Louisville vs FBI etc "games" must watch tv....

RE: Death Penalty for UNC?
UNC needs to probably have a few of their championships taken away. Take away 4 basketball scholarships and give them a 2 two post season ban for basketball and force Roy Williams to step down. That would be good enough punishment in my opinion. No reason to give them the death penalty. I do not see that ever happening again.

Louisville same thing as above.

I think Penn State got a fair punishment in football as well.

UNC football probably needs to be hit as well for the fake classes. I would hit every program that had a student athlete with a fake class with scholarship cut backs and two year post season ban

We'll see the NCAA allow players to get paid outright before we see another school get the death penalty.

Sad, but true. NCAA really regretted what they did with SMU, and now they're letting programs get away with murder basically. NCAA should have gotten over SMU a long time ago, and handed out more dP's, but they didn't do anything, which considering how wimpy the NCAA is, doesn't surprise me.
