The University of North Carolina is still waiting to settle its case with the NCAA over its alleged academic scandal, but others have not been afraid to weigh in.
Speaking about the possible disruptions of an athletic scandal, University of Maryland president Wallace Loh suggested Thursday that North Carolina should have its programs canceled, also known as the "death penalty" in college athletics.
"For the things that happened in North Carolina, it's abysmal," Loh said during a University of Maryland senate meeting, per Andrew Carter of the News and Observer. "I would think that this would lead to the implementation of the death penalty by the NCAA. But I'm not in charge of that."
North Carolina has been under investigation for academic fraud since 2014, two years after the previous case was closed in 2012.
The NCAA has sent three different notices of allegation to the school, most recently in December 2016, accusing the football and basketball programs of giving their players preferential treatment in academics. The school was also charged with a lack of institutional control.
The last team to receive the "death penalty" was SMU football for the 1987 season.
