→ North Carolina releases NCAA’s Notice of Allegations

I agree with Jeff Eisenberg on this particular point:

Since the allegations against North Carolina are so broad rather than sport-specific, it’s unclear how the school’s football and men’s basketball programs will be affected. There’s no pertinent case for the NCAA’s committee on infractions to use as a model as it determines penalties, so it could come down to a gut feeling from members of the committee.

I assume the NCAA will pull a Roger Goodell and come up with some ridiculous punishment. It will be even worse, though, since this kind of academic issue should be completely out of the NCAA’s area of enforcement.

→ UNC Health Care didn’t take patient appointments immediately before and during North Carolina’s game Thursday night

This is a complete non-story that is getting ridiculously blown out of proportion. There was no way people could have easily gotten to appointments on Thursday, the hospital knew this a year ago and scheduled accordingly. It’s ridiculous how quickly people will try to jump on any sniff of a rumor about college sports and their importance at universities.

Glad to hear it. I hope PJ can put the off-season behind him, and just play basketball.

→ North Carolina’s Roy Williams comes to the aid of a woman with a brain tumor

Jeff Eisenberg writing at Yahoo:

Spreading word via flyers and social media that Williams might attend helped Telman transform a small-scale fundraiser into a meaningful one. Three times as many people agreed to walk or run as initially expected and the event raised more than $28,000, nearly tripling the already wildly optimistic target Telman had set for herself when she came up with the idea a few days earlier.

Well done Coach Roy. Well done.

Carolina fights for its College World Series life. Between this and the Sox game starting in a couple of minutes, it is a good day for afternoon baseball watching.
