    NCAA plays favorites.

    the NCAA hates Miami so they're going to get pounded and believe a proven liar and felon before anyone else.

    Every college program does something wrong. Auburn just hasn't been caught.

    Exactly right. Every major school has these bunny courses set up for their athletes. It's just a matter how far to the easy side they want to take them. Maybe UNC went a little too far? I don't know. But I do know every major callege does this. UGA is an example of a school that went too far back in the Jim Harrick days. He had a basketball course his son "taught". They gave the answers to the test and some other things that went too far. That was one of many things Harrick went too far on and eventually paid for it.

The allegations must be based on credible and persuasive information and includes a good-faith belief that the Committee on Infractions could make a finding. As with any case, should the enforcement staff become aware of additional credible information, it will review the information to determine whether further investigation is warranted.

    The funniest part about you response is that you quoted something the NCAA said...as if they are actually fair.

    "The NCAA enforcement staff is committed to a fair and thorough investigative process.".

    The NCAA hasn't made fair and balanced rulings for a while. Same reason Oregon got a slap on the wrist.

    When the NCAA actually finds evidence of wrongdoing, it hands down penalties. On the rare occasion when the NCAA can find no evidence of wrong doing, it issues declaritive statements to that effect. One can quibble about the appropriate severity of a punishment for a given infraction and even if the NCAA doles out penalties in a consistent manner. But there really isn't any wiggle room concerning exoneration due to a lack of any credible evidence to substantiate an allegation.

    Hairston suspended indefinitely after receiving a traffic citation:

    I'd say with a 99.9% certainty he will be back by December 14th (Kentucky).

    I hope UNC can get by Athletes In Action and the Division II or III opponents without him.

    Completely agree that the lack of attention given to the situation at UNC is ridiculous. This is death penalty-type stuff here.

    Cecil never approached Auburn. Quit trolling especially given this kind of trolling ignores established facts.

    Oh please.

    Can you really sit there with a straight face and tell me nothing of impropriety happened? Seriously?
