    I really wonder why this isn't in the media more. Especially with the result last night. I can tell you, if it was a smaller school, say VCU from a few years back, with the same accusations, the press wouldn't leave it alone and neither would the NCAA. They would need to set an example with them. Because what risk would it have to their empire to give the death penalty to a school like VCU. ESPN and the NCAA would just shakes hands and move on.

    Until the media, including guys like Jim Nantz, step up and ask why the NCAA is not acting on this investigation, this will die a slow death.

    Just watch.....they've drug it out long enough that everyone associated with it is no longer at UNC, and it wouldn't be fair to punish those who had nothing to do with it, would it? Light slap on the wrist.

    Any sanctions brought onto UNC by the NCAA would instantly get challenged in court.

    The NCAA is basically just a shell organization now. After the Penn State example, any institution would likely take the NCAA to court if they tried to dish out any major punishments.

    To be fair, that's probably how they would handle it if Iowa State was caught doing something like that.

    NCAA~2 years after Roy retires: "So you guys know that what happened was bad, right?"
    UNC: "Of course! I can't believe Roy did that."
    NCAA: "Just make sure it doesn't happen again, mmkay?"
    UNC: "No way! Not on our watch. So, ummm, you're not going to vacate any of our wins or titles, right?"
    NCAA:
