UNC denies it should have monitored football Facebook and Twitter

By Ryan Davis

UNC admitted it messed up this week. That’s not a surprising step for any university after the NCAA mails it a 42-page explanation of how it messed up – in this case, with its football players cheating in classes and taking gifts from agents.  One part of UNC’s response to the NCAA that may be unprecedented. The self-punishments certainly aren’t – UNC says its football program will vacate all its wins from 2008 and 2009, cut scholarships, pay a 50-thousand dollar fine, and go on probation. After all, the university agreed with most of the NCAA’s allegations.

But here’s one it disagreed with, and this is the unique part: that UNC failed to monitor its players Twitter and Facebook accounts.
