As Chip reported about here on the blog earlier on Tuesday night, North Carolina was hit with a Notice of Allegations from the NCAA. You can read all about it here, but following the notice the school released statements of its own.

From Chancellor Holden Thorp:

"I deeply regret that Carolina is in this position. We made mistakes, and we have to face that. When the investigation started a year ago, we pledged to cooperate fully with the NCAA, to go where the facts took us, and to face the issues head on. Our level of cooperation is evident in the allegations, some of which arise from facts that we self-reported to the NCAA. We will emerge with a stronger athletics program, and we will restore confidence in Carolina football."

Athletic Director Dick Baddour:

"We are disappointed to be in this position because it goes against everything we believe in, but we are thankful to get to the next step in the process. These are the issues that we have been dealing with since last summer. We will gather the information the NCAA has requested and prepare to address the notice with the NCAA in the fall. We have a strong staff that will help get us through this and put us in a position where we will be a better athletic department as a result. Our fans have been through a lot this past year, and we appreciate their continued patience and support as we work through these next steps with the NCAA."

Head coach Butch Davis:

"I feel terrible that these allegations occurred under my watch. I especially regret that the university has had to endure this scrutiny because of the football program. The responsibility for correcting any problems that put us in this position is mine, and I take that responsibility very seriously.

"I want to thank our fans for the tremendous support we have received. Their loyalty and support has been especially appreciated by our student-athletes. The opportunity I have to serve the University of North Carolina is one that I cherish, and I will continue to focus on improving every aspect of our football program."

North Carolina will appear before the Committee on Infractions in Indianapolis on October 28th.

Even if you except Davis' argument that he had no idea what was going on in his own program, he hired John Blake and then hired the tutor in his personal employ after she had been fired from her University tutoring job.  Blake then committed so many vioaltions that it's incredible to read about, and the tutor then continued to tutor football players for free, payed their parking tickets, and bought a plane ticket for a football player. (Again, after she was let go by the university, but after she was hired privately by Davis.)  Forget about the 6 major violations that were found and 9 violations total, at the very least Davis has proven that he is completely incapable of hiring anyone of quality, so why should he be trusted to run a football program.

When your AD comes out and makes a statement like " We are disappointed to be in this position because it goes against everything we believe in " is nothing but a bunch of garbage. When you hired Davis who did you think you were getting Mother Teresa? Im sure he regrets the fact that he got caught which goes against the Carolina way.

When you have not won an ACC championship since 1980 the powers that be have a way of ignoring the corruption around the program.

if only the NCAA would bring down the hammer...the Heels deserve it....but it won't happen..their ridiculous "self-imposed" penalties and that smug a-hole Butch Davis...he knew who he was hiring when he hired John Blake given his past reputation...and then Davis pleaded ignorance when the trouble began as if he had no idea that Blake could do such things...the Heels and Davis should be charged with "lack of institutional control" and given stiff penalties for their improprieties...but, we all know what will happen

This has been investigated for a year by professional investigators.  Your questions are just another futile attempt by the ABC crowd to continue with the conspiracy theories.
