While he's back in Chapel Hill watching his North Carolina teammates battle LSU on television, Marvin Austin no doubt has a lot on his mind.  We already know he's frustrated by everything going on with the NCAA's investigation of several UNC players' involvement with agents and being suspended indefinitely by the team, but now he's got something else on his plate.

According to an AP report in the Charlotte Observer , Austin was served with a subpeona on Friday night.

The report says that the North Carolina Secretary of State's office issued the subpeona to Austin as the state is now investigating if any laws were broken by the agents who have helped get so many players in trouble over the last few weeks.  A spokesman for the Secretary of State's office, George Jeter, declined comment on the subpeona, saying only that "it's an active, ongoing inquiry at this time."

It doesn't sound as if Austin is in danger of any legal ramifications for whatever role he may or may not have played in this mess, but the fact of the matter is that when the Secretary of State's office is getting involved, it's not good news.  Odds are it's not going to help him get back on the field anytime soon, either.

I don't think this is the kind of education Austin was hoping to receive when he decided to return for his senior season.

UNC's Marvin Austin subpoenaed

Who are these agents?  Why has no one in the press called them out by name?
