>>None of this will ever change unless the schools—which make the NCAA’s rules and set up the NCAA’s disciplinary process—demand a change and then make that change. By their unwillingness to make any meaningful change, we should assume the schools are perfectly happy with a system that feels as if it doles out punishments by throwing darts at a board.

The people at the schools are the only ones who can effect change. And they don’t seem to care until they’re on the business end of a penalty that feels chosen at random.<<

Why don't you just leave the conversation then. As a lifelong husky fan and someone who thinks UNC got away with academic fraud without any punishment for that.
So forgive us for giving a crap and not caring what you think, so piss off
UConn’s fault.

I can't let it go because of how UConn was targeted for selective enforcement on the APR issue. Calhoun wasn't properly contrite over the Miles case and they waited until the year UConn was the only major university that failed to meet the APR requirements that had been on the books for a number of years but never enforced. Indiana had failed to meet the standard for at least three years, Arkansas for at least one and even Syracuse and likely others, I believe. But, when UConn failed to meet it in 2012, bingo, let's get 'em. I verified it at the time by going to the site that allowed you to see the scores for each school. May still be there but I'm not bothering to go look.

This article below was at a link in the other Dodd story on Missouri. It's the best and most succinct article I've ever read on the uNC story and makes me wonder if any school, like Missouri, will ever go after the NCAA and challenge penalties like those imposed on Missouri using the BS argument, or form thereof, the committee on enforcement used to give uNC a pass.

NCAA leaves door wide open to academic misconduct with handling of UNC case

Ok, so the lesson is never admit wrongdoing is the distinguishing factor. The UNC classes were created and graded by an unqualified office secretary, but the players did the “work”.. in other worlds this is known as a fraud or a sham. In fact, had that same class been given to and paid for by regular paying students, UNC would likely be liable for fraud, and their would accreditation would be at risk. Machinations...
