UNC academic scandal explained

Louisville, Syracuse have also been dealing with NCAA violations

Syracuse self-reported violations connected with academic fraud, extra benefits, failure by the school to follow its own written drug policy, players’ involvement in promotional activities and participation in outside competition. In a book published last year, Katina Powell accused former Louisville graduate assistant Andre McGee of paying her and other escorts to have sex with players and recruits between 2010 and 2014.

Six years ago, the head of the tutoring program for athletes at UNC-Chapel Hill paved the way for a valued employee to have her retirement party at a spacious, climate-controlled luxury box in Kenan Stadium. He persuaded the athletic department to waive a $1,000 rental fee and offered to pay the $575 tab for wait service and cleanup.
