* Sets new guidelines to monitor social media.
On Bowl Ban:
Penalty #8 says that UNC will not be eligle to partcipate in the ACC championship game.
on additional 'ships taken away...
Violations were 'serious and widespread' and the resulting relates to the seriousness of the case.
The timing of the release has nothing to do with anything regarding any other events.
In October, Blake said that he would be willing to cooperate and hand over documents, however after requests the documents weren't handed over until late October.
On 'Cautionary Tale'
This is normal language used in most reports.
Will these deter other institutions?
Show cause orders, prevention of post season play, impact on teammates and should promote actions to avoid in the future.
Penalties are specifics of this case although they are similar to other cases.
The tutor didn't cooperate.
Re: Innocent and new players/admin being punished.
A university is responsible for the actions and supposed to have a punative action. The programs and the people, including athletes both benefit when violations happen. That's the process that's available.
Again, commend UNC for their cooperation. However, it's a serious case and they are limited in their ability to attach penalties to individuals.
How did it fall short of a LOIC?
Not presented to the committee. 'Failure to monitor' was given. UNC properly educated and monitored the student athletes.
UNC appeals process?
Has yet to be determined.
The tutor's cooperation had nothing to do with the sanctions as did a potential 'deal' made with Blake and the NCAA to reduce his potential 'show cause' from 5 years to 3.
