Clemson Also Gets A Visit From The NCAA

The NCAA is certainly racking up the frequent flyer miles this summer, as the AP is reporting that investigators showed up at Clemson this week.

Clemson AD Terry Don Phillips issued a Dick Baddour-approved statement confirming the NCAA had been on campus to interview two football players and that the school was cooperating fully. He [...]

Charges Against Sturdivant Dismissed

The Stanly County DA’s office has dropped the marijuana possession charge against Quan Sturdivant in exchange for the UNC linebacker entering a  “deferred prosecution” agreement.

Assistant District Attorney John Phillips said this afternoon that Sturdivant will be required to do 24 hours of community service and will have a substance abuse assessment as part of [...]

Earlier in the week, on the strength of Doc’s in-depth look into Marvin Austin’s Twitter feed(a somewhat mind warping experience) Tar Heel Fan crossed the 1,000,000 hits threshold. I know, I know. Your disappointment at the absence of a party and some sort of free swag is duly noted.

Now, I am well aware that [...]

Basketball Tidbits

First up from Fox Sports’ Jeff Goodman who caught up with Roy Williams on the summer AAU circuit who discussed a variety of topics including Harrison Barnes:

“It’s unfair that people are talking about him as a savior,” Williams said. “But he has come right in and already earned the respect of the veterans with [...]

Five Tar Heels Named Preseason All-ACC

Now the question is whether one of them will play at all.

Here is your preseason All-ACC team. UNC had five players, all on defense, named.

Robert Quinn, DE Marvin Austin, DT Quan Sturdivant, LB Kendric Burney, CB Deunta Williams, S

Quinn received 47 out of 52 votes.  I am little amazed Quinn was not [...]

Giglio: NCAA Guidelines On Punishments

Excellent piece from J.P. Giglio at the N&O summarizing what can be expected from the NCAA in their investigation of UNC’s football program:

According to NCAA documents, for expenses less than $500, the suspension is zero games; between $501 and $700 is 10 percent of the regular season; $701 to $1,000 is 20 percent; and [...]

UNC Under Siege Day 13: Zzzzzzzzzzz…….

After almost two weeks of playing whack-a-mole with news stories, speculation and whatever people could produce from Google cache, it appears this story has leveled off. The pilot has turned off the seat belt sign. You are now free to move about other topics such as what might happen on the football field this [...]

Butch Davis Faces The Media

This is the audience Butch Davis addressed via @TarHeelFootball. The crowd was four deep around Davis. One writer counted 53 media members and 34 recorders. Needless to say he was a popular guy for someone who was under orders to say nothing about the NCAA investigation. What you see here is a whole slew [...]

Austin’s Twitter Feed Casts Doubt on Club Liv Tweet

Marvin Austin may have fired off the tweet heard ‘round the college football world, but a review of the cached version of his Twitter account on Google suggests Austin was probably not in Miami at the time of the tweet and lends credence to the notion that Austin was most likely parroting a rap song [...]

ACC Kickoff Reveals…Nothing Really

UNC sent QB T.J. Yates and DE Robert Quinn to Greensboro for ACC Kickoff. Both fielded more questions about non-football issues than they probably would like. Since agents was pretty much the talk of the day, we did get a view of how UNC handles agents from the perspective of educating players.

“It’s just an [...]
