I am getting this sneaky suspicion that the penalties will be far less than some seem to think. Even the writer (Goodman) admits as much. Why delay the announcement a week? Fundraising? I call BS on that. Why on the next Friday? Controversial news gets less coverage and less exposure on a Friday as people's attention shifts to a weekend mode. They will hope the slap on the wrist dissipates by Monday. I hope I am wrong but I am tiring of the NCAA treating certain members differently. They need to be exposed for the frauds they are. Here's hoping the FBI brings them around.

Blue Blood schools rarely get the punishment that they deserve
If this happened at a school like the University of Idaho, look out!!
They would be whacked and whacked hard!!

........... UCONN and it's brokers should be reinvestigated given the Sidney Wilson tamperig and possible $$ exchange regarding his transfer.

The tale which I was told regarding the pressure asserted on Sidney while at StJohn’s, if true, would be criminal.

Maybe someone should tip off the FBI.

This ticks me off! I detest UCONN! Ugly, mean, fans! If true, something should be done, but if the victim college (SJU in this case) doesn't raise cain (and I doubt we will) against an Elite program--nada will happen.

UNC gets no penalty. Not even a slap on the wrist.

The investigation only started in 2010, maybe if they had more than seven years to poke around they'd have found something suspicious.

I would be less annoyed if I could convince myself that this was due to the NCAA’s incompetence
It's all in the reflexes

UNC did nothing wrong. Any student could take these fake courses. Their athletic academic advisors should be congratulated for identifying appropriate courses that permit the athletes to earn credit towards graduation without interfering with their practice or travel schedules.
