Waiting 14 and a half hours only to wait longer
Posted August 17
Nashville, Tenn. — UNC's hearing with the NCAA's committee on infractions lasted a total of 14 and a half hours and now we get to wait at least 60 more days to find out what will come of that hearing. The committee typically takes 60-90 days to release a ruling but it could be longer than that. The way this case has gone, you can expect it to be on the longer end.
Day two was a lot shorter than day one. The hearing lasted 5 hours and the parties involved did not break for lunch. Football coach Larry Fedora, former academic advisor Jan Boxill and Debra Crowder, who was at the center of the African American studies classes, were all excused for day two.
It is an NCAA violation for the University to say anything about the case and they stuck to that. No one from UNC stopped to talk to the media and the University will not release a statement.
Once the ruling is released UNC, or anyone named in the ruling, will have the chance to appeal. An appeal would lead to another face-to-face meeting.
• UNC hearing is a waiting game
If you wanted me to guess, I would say we will still be talking about this case well into 2018.
