North Carolina Tar Heels (official thread)

Discussion in 'College Football' started by cozmicdaaz, Nov 16, 2008.

  1. No, we vacated our games from 2010, when we beat scUM. 2011 was Fickell's year, where we lost to scUM. Reclaiming our wins from 2010 makes no difference in their wins in The Game.

    And losses don't get taken away, so it wouldn't have worked like that anyways.

    Now they have a "shoe scandal":

    North Carolina’s self-reported NCAA violations the result of players selling their shoes


    We learned two things about the North Carolina football program this week and neither of them are all that great for the Tar Heels or their brand.

    The item that generated the most headlines was head coach Larry Fedora discussing his misguided views on CTE at ACC Media Days but in terms of impact, it may very well be the fact that the school self-reported several NCAA violations that could lead to player suspensions this season. Now we know what the whole mess was about and let’s just say that it’s a lot less serious than the last time the school underwent the NCAA microscope.

    Per WRAL, the secondary violations that were agreed upon were the result of players “selling university-issued shoes and athletic gear.” Yep, selling shoes.

    “It’s disappointing,” athletic director Bubba Cunningham told The News & Observerabout the matter. “You know we do a great job. I think our compliance office does a great job with education, and students know the rules, and occasionally we make mistakes. We had a couple of students who made some mistakes, and there’s obviously penalties associated with that.”

    Adding a layer to this story is that the school recently switched to the Jordan Brand for their apparel prior to the 2017 season as a nod to the Tar Heels’ most famous alum. As part of a uniform unveil that summer, players were given a free pair of Retro 11s and understandably went nuts upon receiving them. They also received some Air Jordan 3 retros in January. It’s unknown whether those shoes are the ones in question that were sold or if it were some other items that players were given to wear but the bottom line is selling such items is against NCAA rules.

    At well over $100 for each pair, the players in question face not only repaying the money to a charity to regain eligibility but also the prospect of several games worth of suspensions. It seems like we’ll find out soon who will be held out and for how long but that trip to face Cal in the season opener could be a lot tougher than Fedora and his staff thought thanks to the latest bit of scandal in Chapel Hill.

    North Carolina suspends 13 football players for selling team-issued shoes

    The North Carolina roster will be rather thin when the season begins

    North Carolina announced Monday that 13 football players will be suspended to open the 2018 season after the school found secondary NCAA violations involving the sale of team-issued shoes.

    Offensive linemen Brian Anderson, Quiron Johnson and Jordan Tucker; defensive ends Malik Carney, Tomon Fox and Tyrone Hopper; linebacker Malik Robinson; quarterback Chazz Surratt; and wide receiver Beau Corrales will each sit out four games.

    Defensive backs Greg Ross and Tre Shaw will miss two games, and both quarterback Jack Davidson and offensive lineman Jonah Melton will miss one game.

    The suspensions will be staggered.

    Carney will miss games against East Carolina, UCF, Pittsburgh and Virginia Tech. Fox will sit against Miami, Syracuse, Virginia and Georgia Tech. Everybody else will miss season opener at Cal on Sept. 1. Since many of the players play the same position, the staggered suspensions have been approved by the NCAA.

    "I am certainly upset by our players' actions and how their choices reflect on them, our program and the university," coach Larry Fedora said in a statement released by the school. "These young men knew the rules and are being held responsible for the poor choices they have made. Accountability is an important core principle in this program. We will learn from this and aim to do better in the future."

    UNC really fell off a cliff. They were actually pretty decent in Fedora's first few years. A couple of years back they started something like 11-1 and were in the top-10 with a pretty electric offense led by Marquise Williams (i think that was his name). Played Clemson tight in the ACC championship, losing 45-38. Fedora's name was even getting some run for bigger jobs...i seem to recall LSU being on of them. Then after Trubisky left, they flatlined.
