Even so, UNC’s most recent response to the NCAA, as well as correspondence between the two sides during the past year, provides insight into how the university will defend itself during the hearing.
One: Why is the origin story of the courses relevant if, over time, the athletic department did find a way to take advantage of a compromised curriculum?
The argument the staff has made, though, is that the athletic department “leveraged” the relationship with Crowder and Nyang’oro in order to provide special access to these courses.
UNC’s hearing lasted nearly 10 hours on Wednesday and continues on Thursday and so, clearly the university has failed to dissuade the NCAA from pursuing this case.
