I know a buddy that (suppose to be in the know) when it comes to the NCAA investigation and he dropped a bomb on me and my friends just the other day.

According to him (and this guy is well respected) says that after the NCAA is done with the football investigation that they are going to go after basketball and they are going to go as far back as Dean Smith. All this to make an example out of us, and send a message to the college world.

If anyone has heard similar rumors please share

[b] UNC probe reveals academic fraud[/b]

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- A three-month long investigation into academic fraud at the University of North Carolina revealed that student-athletes were not given added academic benefits as part of a scandal within the school's African and Afro-American Studies Department.
Rather, students at large benefited from anomalies specific to the department, such as unauthorized grade changes, forged faculty signatures on grade rolls and limited or no class time.
"This was not an athletic scandal," former North Carolina governor Jim Martin told UNC's Board of Trustees. "It was an academic scandal, which is worse."
The independent investigation, headed by Martin, shows that that irregularities in the African and Afro-American Studies Department went back farther than an original probe revealed -- to the fall of 1997.
However, according to the report presented to the Board on Thursday, no academic misconduct or other anomalies were found outside the AFAM department.
Martin and consulting first Baker Tilly compiled almost two decades worth of [url="http://espn.go.com/college-sports/story/_/id/8765672/north-carolina-tar-heels-investigation-reveals-academic-scandal-african-american-studies-department#"]enrollment[/url] data, looking at more than 172,000 course sections involving almost 120,000 undergraduates and almost 13,000 instructors. They also interviewed dozens of staff, students and officials, and concluded that no faculty member in AFAM was involved unethically in the scandal, other than former chairman Julius Nyang'oro and administrator Deborah Crowder.
According to the report, the review found 216 [url="http://espn.go.com/college-sports/story/_/id/8765672/north-carolina-tar-heels-investigation-reveals-academic-scandal-african-american-studies-department#"]classes[/url] with proven or potential problems, including 454 unauthorized grade changes.
But the report also stated that the percentage of unauthorized grade changes for student-athletes was consistent with student-athlete enrollment in those [url="http://espn.go.com/college-sports/story/_/id/8765672/north-carolina-tar-heels-investigation-reveals-academic-scandal-african-american-studies-department#"]courses[/url].
"In general, grade changes do not appear to be isolated or reserved for student-athletes," the report states.
There is evidence that employees of the student-athlete support program were aware that certain courses within AFAM were so-called "Term Paper Courses" that were being taught as independent studies, according to the report.
"When these concerns were raised, the Faculty Athletic Committee stated that it was incumbent upon each instructor of record to determine how to teach his/her own course and that is was therefore unnecessary for [url="http://espn.go.com/college-sports/story/_/id/8765672/north-carolina-tar-heels-investigation-reveals-academic-scandal-african-american-studies-department#"]ASPSA[/url] personnel to question the instructional methods used," the report stated.
Martin also told the Board he found no evidence that any coaches knew anything about the about the irregularities.
"I believe personally that the big money from television contracts does distort values of collegiate sports programs; but we found no evidence that it was a factor in these anomalous courses," Martin wrote in the report. "Despite what one might imagine, there is no evidence the Counselors, or the students, or the coaches had anything to do with perpetrating this abuse of the AFRI/AFAM curriculum, or any other."
He also wrote that there were many other ways, within the rules, for athletes and other students to get high grades and boost their GPAs outside of the AFAM department.
Martin continued to reveal his findings to UNC's Board of Trustees on Thursday morning; a news conference was scheduled for the early afternoon.
In May, UNC publicly announced an internal probe that found that 54 [url="http://espn.go.com/college-sports/story/_/id/8765672/north-carolina-tar-heels-investigation-reveals-academic-scandal-african-american-studies-department#"]classes in[/url] the Department of Afro- and African-American Studies were either "aberrant" or "irregularly" taught from the summer of 2007 to the summer of 2011.
UNC said no student received a grade without submitting written work. But more than 50 percent of the students in those suspect classes were athletes. As first reported by The Raleigh News & Observer, one class in the summer of 2011 had an enrollment of 19 -- 18 football players and one former football player.
In late July, a faculty committee looking into the scandal issued a new report stating that academic counselors assigned to the athletes may have pushed them into those classes.
In August, a partial transcript of former two-sport star Julius Peppers was uncovered by North Carolina State message board posters on UNC's web site. His alleged low grades and class choices raised questions about how far problems in the AFAM program go back.
That put more pressure on school chancellor Holden Thorp and UNC to dig deeper into the academic misconduct, and thus look to Martin and consulting firm Baker-Tilly to investigate further with the independent review.
A school official said the Martin Report was forwarded to the NCAA on Thursday morning; it's unclear when or if the organization will respond.
UNC says it shared the results of its original internal probe with the NCAA before the NCAA sanctioned the football program for improper benefits and academic misconduct involving a tutor last March.
UNC again updated the NCAA enforcement staff on Aug. 23 about the AFAM situation, and the school released a statement a week later that said: "The NCAA staff reaffirmed to university officials that no NCAA rules appeared to have been broken."

AFAM dept. only? And Martin says the grade changes were on par with non-student-athletes?

Don't care. If you majored in AFAM, that's your fault.
