Twitter had plenty to say, and in short time, about the Friday morning announcement that UNC will not face significant penalties from the NCAA’s investigation into academic scandals.

Members of the Tar Heels camp expressed their approval of the ruling in a variety of ways.

But others expressed disapproval of the ruling, throwing shade at both the NCAA and the university.

Students and visitors to the NC State campus on Friday, October 13, 2017 react to the lack of punishment handed down by the NCAA in its final ruling on the academic scandal investigation at the University of North Carolina.

Much of the criticism aimed at the NCAA suggested it let UNC off lightly.

Some users compared the ruling the O.J. Simpson murder case trial verdict of 1995.

People also had thoughts on another NCAA ruling made Friday, deeming N.C. State freshman Braxton Beverly ineligible for attending a summer school class at Ohio State.

UNC fans waiting at the Smith Center to attend Late Night with Roy later tonight react to the NCAA's "no penalties" ruling.
