Pressure Mounts On UNC And NCAA

Remember during the Penn State penalty announcement how it was opined here and other places that the NCAA was setting a precedent that might be difficult to follow, that Mark Emmert and Executive Committee were loosing the genie, and that Pandora's box was now open? Well all those appear to be true as pressure mounts on the school in Chapel Hill and the NCAA to take action in the alleged academic fraud case. The Charlotte Observer has led the mining of information and their most recent efforts led to the apparent and unintentional posting of the transcript of former Tarheel footballer Julius Peppers and the lack of effort of the University in investigating allegations.

Now comes The Sporting News saying that Emmert and NCAA must follow their PSU precedent and punish UNC.

This additional and most recent commentary from CBSSports Greg Doyel:

It's time for the NCAA to start digging. In the meantime, North Carolina should get a head start on some of its own chores.

For starters? There are some banners at the Smith Center that need to come down.
