The NCAA investigation into dealings between agents and players at North Carolina has wound down. As of today, one player will not be eligible for the game on Saturday in Atlanta against LSU. Marvin Austin will not be playing in that game, but the full extent of his punishment has not yet been finalized. It was reported on this blog that sources close to the program expected the penalty to be a single game, but that is now in question.
As was expressed by the university last Thursday, there are suspicions that some members of the football team have been given inappropriate assistance with their class work. The school has been working diligently to, at minimum, clear the players that are completely without blame so that they can play this weekend.
Similar sources have passed along that the only players whom have not been cleared at this time are Charles Brown and Kendric Burney. The status of each will likely be determined very near to game time on Saturday.
