My Two Cents Worth on UNC's Academic Fraud

In a News and Observer article entitled "UNC officials: No NCAA rules were broken related to African studies fraud" the following statement was made:

CHAPEL HILL -- The NCAA found no evidence that its rules were violated by the academic misconduct in UNC-Chapel Hill’s African and Afro-American Studies department, university officials said Friday.

What did you expect?!

State Fans Nation details the statement by UNC officials in this article. Within the article, some who made comment did point out that this statement was made by UNC and not the NCAA; however, it is hard not to conclude that the NCAA agrees.

Again, what did you expect?!

B. David Ridpath, Ed. D., Professor of Sports Management, Ohio University wrote in an article entitled "Should the NCAA Revisit North Carolina":

The NCAA simply cannot pick and choose which schools have engaged in academic fraud and which have not based on some arbitrary choice or status of an institution. It has to use the same level of evidence for all schools and not redefine “nexus” on the fly. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck – it’s a duck – and it is time the NCAA practices consistency and evenhanded enforcement for all schools.

Similar to the answer "no its not" in "Phantasm" to the question of "whether it was over" and similar to the answer "no its not" to the question in "The Day the Earth Stood Still" of "its our planet", the answer to whether the NCAA can pick and choose which schools have engaged in academic fraud is "why, yes, yes they can".
