Huh?…The NCAA NOA said WHAT ??

Bobby Ewing Shower
BobLee
April26/ 2016

Pam, I can’t hear you.  I’m in the shower. …. Did you say the latest NCAA NOA to UNC says WHAT ??  …WHOA!Bobby Ewing Shower

I have always envisioned a most Glorious Grand Finale to The Great Unpleasantness.   Whether the final verdict was DEATH….. a banner or two….  a wrist slap & a “who cares” fine…. a “just don’t do it again” warning…. or kiss Ol’ Roy’s a** and apologize for ever doubting him.   Whatever.

All those options…. and it ends with a Bobby Ewing Shower Scene!.  Google it Albert.

My personal happiness is independent of any TGU Verdict.  I’ve never cared which way it went other than for “fodder purposes”.  Sure, it would “be nice” if justice was served just once; but, hey, it’s 2016…..

  • Sure there was one helluva jock-eligibility scam running for give/take 20 years.
  • Sure Swofford, Baddour et al were dumber than dirt…. permanently drunk on Carolina Way wine and/or totally complicit.
  • Sure Roy “knew”.   Fats Thomas “knew”.  Hillary “knew”.  Everybody “knew”.
  • Sure…. Sure…. Sure
  • …. but OJ “did it” too; and Bill Clinton DID “have sex with that woman Ms Lewinsky”.

I’m less shocked by the BIZARRO way this is now unfolding than I was that Mikey Nifong actually got disbarred.

Will we ever know which Fat Cat Rams “bought the committee”?…. and whats the going rate to “buy an NCAA committee”?  Is it more/less than the price of an Indoor Practice Facility?

I am more shocked when evil-doers ARE punished than when they walk away laughing and shooting the bird to a gullible public brought up on the myth that “Crime Doesn’t Pay”.

 

“A Crime So Horrific There’s No Law Against It”

So Hannibal Lechter walks into a kindergarten…. and eats all the children.

A (NCAA) SWAT team charges in and finds Hannibal sitting in the middle of the floor picking his teeth, with blood & stuff all over him…. and a smug smile.Hannibal Lechter

“YOU’RE UNDER ARREST” the SWAT leader says.

“For what?” asks Hannibal

“For eating a kindergarten class.”

“Is there a specific law against doing that?”

“Sure…. of course.  There must be.”

“I beg to differ, officer; and until you show me any law I have broken; my fancy lawyers and I are walking out that door.  Call me in a year or so IF you find that law.”  Says Lechter as he walks free.

“But but but but ….” mutters the NCAA SWAT guy.

Slow forward to a year or two later.  NCAA SWAT guy calls Hannibal.

RING…. RING…. “Hello, Hannibal Lechter speaking.”

“Mr Lechter, this is the NCAA guy.  You were correct sir.  There is no specific law against ‘eating a kindergarten class’ so we are dropping that charge.  HOWEVER, we are fining you $25 for Trespassing.  So there….

“Make it $20; and I’ll have my fancy lawyer drop a check in the mail.  Ciao gents.”

Hannibal checks his watch. It’s lunch time.   He heads over to the local Rotary Club.  There is no law against “eating Rotarians” either. ….. burp.

###

WHAT

I absolutely appreciate the abject incredulousness of all of this from any ABCers’ POV.   Grab hatchets and chop one another arms off…. run around in circles til you fall down…. beseech whatever Deity you thought was in charge of preventing this sort of travesty. …. and watch OJ, Bill Clinton and UNC Athletics skip merrily out the doors as free as birds.

The Charlotte City Council did WHAT?…. then the NCGA did WHAT?…. and who/what’s a Demi Lovato?

Almost as hooterific is hard-wired TruBlues believing that:

….“eating a kindergarten class” is OK since The Dean Gospels never specifically said it was wrong.  .… if they did it’s not in any of Chansky’s books.

Running a 20 year jock-eligibility scam to enable 100s of academically unqualified “student-athletes” to be able to play Basketball and Football while making a complete mockery of an overtly over-proud academic institution…. and “there is no rule against that” ….. Excuse me Monty Python.  I have a screenplay for your next movie.

The only item left on the TGU To Do List is:

How To Publicly Dispose of Sylvia Hatchell?

 

Sylvia Hatchell

About a year ago a Senior UNC Athletic Official – NOT Bubba – told me over lunch….

“It’s freakin’ Women’s Basketball!  Who the **** cares?” ..Indeed.

I’m hearing that The Short List for How has it down to (1) Beheading Sylvia by The Old Well… (2) BurningBurning at stake Sylvia At The Stake in Polk Place … (3) Cramming Sylvia in a wood chipper @ mid-court of Carmichael Auditorium.

NCAA Poobah Mark Emmert doesn’t care “how” just notify him when the deed is done.

Emmert will send Bubba a citation for the $50 fine for “burning a scapegoat without a permit”…. or “operating a wood chipper indoors”.

This file will then be CLOSED and Emmert’s goons can go back to nailing Division III schools for using lead paint on their goalposts.

I THINK (99% sure) that Sylvia retained THE Wade Smith as her attorney some months ago anticipating a Buy-Out Battle.  Get you checkbook ready Bubba.

###

With TGU finally done…. will Chancellor Chihuahua turn her extraordinary executive management skills to modifying those Dean Dome “pee walls” to accommodate tri-gendered midget amputees?…. (make Rimshot sound)

If you haven’t read “…. you gone Harper Cooper” you simply MUST….

Louisville messed up BobLee. They needed to invite a few regular students to the strip parties and sex club. They will know better next time. Later BobLee.

You can conjure up conspiracies and theories until you are Carolina blue in the face. You can also keep being had by the McClatchy Co. and their tabloid style reporting. The bottom line is the NCAA has very little to stand on in this situation based on their current bylaws. Either accept it, or keep whining like two little boys on a playground over who gets to kick the soccer ball.

Regardless, revenue generating sports at all major Universities are basically semi-pro…..have been for a lonnnnng time.

I distinctly remember that during the early phases of this debacle the BOT and BOG ducked this issue entirely by taking the position that this was a matter that was best left to the NCAA. More than once on this board, a reputed member of the reinforced this theme. Seems they supposedly had reached this position after their experience with being involved in the JV debacle at State. Now the NCAA says they have no jurisdiction over schools offering fraud classes , i.e.. academic matters is not their bag. Even the honorable Jay Bilas has confirmed this and admits this… Read more »

I have never thought that there is any conspiracy in the sense that you mention it…..just gross dereliction of duty. 🙂

Jennifer Wiley, Deborah Crowder, Mary Willingham, Sylvia Hatchell, all vilified! Anyone else see a gender pattern here. The esteemed professor Nyang’oro had nothing to do with it because Crowder forged his signature(10/24/2014 N&O). Twenty something Jennifer Wiley provided all kinds of cash by herself and fixed tickets ALL BY HERSELF. However, somehow scored one of the top lawyers in the state and eventually the charges were dropped. But she was BANNED from ever setting foot on UNC campus. She is a teacher. Based on the WRAL teacher pay documentary, Cheshire was little out of her affordability range. Mary Willingham was… Read more »

I would qualify as a “hard-wired ABC’er”. You know I was looking for a large mushroom cloud over Orange Co. and enjoying the prospect of putting a new swine research farm on the site after TGU was resolved. I’m not surprised at all. I think my alma mater’s 25 years of self-imposed rules following needs to end. I realize no Div 1 program is squeaky clean. We were endlessly chided because our athlete graduation rate was always lower than the cheaters. Well, Duh! It’s clear now. The rules have changed; there are no rules.

Easy now. You’re playing to my Wuf paranoia. Insinuating that there might be a different measure of punishment for wufs vs baby blues. Dang it. I knew that Johnny Swofford was out to get us! I just hope we’re not cheating already…… That WOULD be pathetic.

Frankly this is what I expected. Money rules and has ruled for some time. There are only a few schools in big conference basketball and football who do not break the rules or at least bend them. Indeed this one and done phenominon is nothing more than take some easy courses the first semester, stay eligible for the second semester, then not go to class the second semester and go pro. That is nothing more than semi-pro. Accept it folks the NCAA is in the BUSINESS to make money and nothing else matters. Silly people who get upset because some… Read more »

Am not so sure the UNC sports-faithful should be jumping up and down too gleefully just yet . And maybe the ABC’ers oughten be so upset about any so-called-whitewash either . The NCAA’s fat lady has not yet sung and the NCAA still HAS to exhibit some “raison de ‘etre ” , some excuse for their very existence . Don’t they ? Maybe their reference/charge concerning UNC’s loss of institutional control ( of their Af-Am Dept.) for over fifteen years is the heavy hammer patiently waiting to descend upon Chapel Hill . Or maybe a do-nothing-much resolution will be a… Read more »

Couple of ways to look at it….for the older, Central NC Crowd who remember Jesse and his “editorials”, simply think of Chubb Sewell. THe Retired Judge would close his guest commentary with the following…. Call your (yu er was phonetically how it sounded) Case. Having run Audio for Mr. Helms, that is the gospel…. If you want to see how Sylvia’s Execution will be handled….then go here….NOTE….this is getting so many “Views” that it might take a little time to load. http://i990.photobucket.com/albums/af29/OldasdirtDevil/Thrown-Under-the-Bus-Mens-BB-Sylvia-gif.gif OR….you could take the following lines from the Eagles and let all ABC’s and Wuffies follow Glenn and… Read more »

I certainly hope so and also that they do it with some dignity. If this process is stressful, it could have serious impacts on her immune system. I will always hold Spangler, Monteith and Sitton responsible for Jimmy V’s cancer. There is more than sufficient anecdotal evidence that stress and mental anguish can trigger diseases, including cancer. Interesting segment this afternoon as I was headed home after PT. David Glenn had two “You MUST understand” reasons and then a full 16 minute monologue. Even Rush said….WOW….that was long. He ranted and raved (so?), but he also seemed to make a… Read more »

Not surprised, not even a little. It looks like the NCAA has set a precedent, a blueprint, for other institutions to follow and they will despite faux expressions of outrage from some of your regular commenters. They’ll have to to stay competitive. Jay is probably correct. This appears to be a game changer. Pun intended. Everybody does it will finally be an indisputable truth and no one will be any better off once the smoke clears. Alabama & Ohio State will still be dominate in FB and directional schools will still be struggling to keep up. Same for the MBB… Read more »

Yesterday perhaps marked the death of the concept of “Student Athlete”, first put forth by the NCAA many years ago and now effectively eliminated in the NCAA’s revised Notice of Allegations to UNC which without any explanation now no longer includes any reference to UNC Football or Men’s Basketball, the only two revenue generating sports at UNC with a financial motive to cheat. Although I can imagine how this came to be I will offer no speculation. The result however, is obvious. The NCAA will no longer or CAN NO LONGER regulate the behavior of it’s member institutions. The message… Read more »

BobLee you misunderstand. I’m a lover of college athletics first and a Hokie 2nd. Without the first there is nothing left for VT or any other school. This about all college sports, not VT’s little part to play. I have no axe to grind about UNC. I only love what was amateur college athletics. Naive though I may have been I can see this for what it is.

Was it TS Eliot: This is the way the world ends Not with a bang, but a whimper I have never jumped on the “they will burn” bandwagon, but I am astonished at the NCAA’s recent back-pedalling. Not sure how they reconcile this change with their overt “student-first” strategy in the impending litigations. Guess I’m not smart enough, which wouldn’t surprise me. The NCAA did ask for UNC to provide some interesting material in the ANOA (yes, I actually read the whole thing). Kinda hoping against hope there’s another surprise for us – the ride has been too much fun.… Read more »

Probable punishment:

1) Women’s basketball banned for 10 years. 2) The University must acknowledge publically that Hinton James didn’t walk from Wilmington to Chapel Hill, but instead, rode a horse most of the way.

That #2 really hurts. Thanks, Marvin.

Too long TGU has been going on.
Too soon to postulate finality.
Over next few months it will be interesting seeing who steps up to be a real leader in resolution. May still have to be a Chief Justice or so. No one else of stature left in North Carolina or the NCAA. So SAD !!

This was unexpected that a watered down replacement NOA arrived. Mark Emmert does enjoy plenty of light blue koolade. He is the boss at the NCAA and did his friends from Orange County a huge favor. However, this is not ultimately decided until the COI meets. Nobody knows which 6 of the 24 members will meet on the UNC case. None of those 6 would seem to care about UNC as much as Emmert. Anything can happen with the COI but now I would bet that Sylvia is in much worse shape than Roy or Larry. This scam was begun… Read more »
