UNC To Face Accrediting Inquiry for Academic Fraud

UNC To Face Accrediting Inquiry for Academic Fraud

Submitted by Muttley on November 13th, 2014 at 9:03 PM

The shot across UNC's bow has been fired by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges accrediting agency.

The public university could face warnings or probation as a result of the academic fraud findings, which showed student-athletes accounted for nearly half of enrollments in "irregular classes" over an 18-year period.

But the school is unlikely to lose its membership in the group, said Belle Wheelan, president of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.

"We don't just drop schools," she said. "We give them time to fix things that are wrong first."

The possibility was first raised at mgoblog.com in an October 29 post:

Does Roy Williams and/or Larry Fedora get fired over this?

 

Note: I don't think this is OT as it surely will be a consideration in President Schlissel's pursuit of an Athletic Director.

Jeff Goodman has finally revealed his source about who told him that Trey Burke was declaring for the draft after his freshman year.

Don't worry, that wasn't written by Duffy or JMac.  Jason Lisk did a solid interview.

If you don't want to read, Goodman says that Burke texted him and told him he was leaving, but his dad and Beilein convinced him to stay.

LeVert getting some love from Forde

While I typically do not like pre season hype stories, it is nice to read some positive news about Michigan for once. Forde has some very positive things to say about Caris. Here's hoping Caris and the Michigan team grow and become a force this season. 

16. Caris LeVert, Michigan. Gifted athlete played a supporting role his first two years in John Beilein's system. Now he's ready for a star turn. LeVert was hardly destined for that role, though – he was a mid-major recruit ticketed for Ohio until John Groce left to go to Illinois. That led him to Michigan, where he's blossomed into arguably the best two-guard in the nation.

Title says it all.  Sources saying that senior starting forward, Markus Kennedy, of SMU is ineligible.

Given our questions up front that should be a big help to us against Larry Brown's squad.

One of our 2015 basketball targets, we were in his final 5 schools.

I guess it's not really a surprise that he didn't select us, but it is kind of surprising that he picked USCe over Louisville (his presumed number 2).

EDIT: Looks like some people are having trouble... USCe is South Carolina, USCw would be Southern Cal.

Just in case anyone missed it, Austin Hatch was Scott Van Pelt's Star of the Night on SC tonight. I don't know how to embed from an ESPN website, can someone please embed. This might have been mentioned or posted on another thread, but I think recognition for this young man's heart and perseverance deserves its own. Go Austin and Go Blue!

At the game in Crisler. Austin Hatch just checked into the game. The bench stood up in anticipation every time Austin touched the ball. With less than a minute left Austin got fouled and missed his first free throw. After a deep breath and a second with his eyes closed, Austin put the ball straight through the rim, nothing but net.

 

It's unbelievable to think that just 3 short years after surviving his 2nd plane crash, after relearning how to breathe, eat, and walk, Austin has scored in a Division 1 basketball game. Amazing credit to Austin as a person and credit to John Beilein for giving him the opportunity. Go Blue
