CHARLOTTE — Wednesday has not been kind to Larry Fedora and the North Carolina football team.
Hours after Fedora made questionable remarks regarding the data involving C.T.E., as well as what he sees as an "attack" on the sport of football, WRAL reported that multiple Tar Heel players could face suspensions of one game or more for violating NCAA rules.
The number of players facing suspension could total up to a dozen as reported by multiple outlets including Sports Illustrated.
The apparent infractions involved players selling University-sponsored gear, including shoes. Once the University became aware, it self-reported the infractions to the NCAA in February.
The violations are of a secondary nature, meaning the penalty will likely be less severe.
