UNC Football Banned From Post Season Play In 2012

The University of North Carolina’s football has been banned from competing in the postseason in 2012, the Suits From Indianapolis (Formerly Kansas) announced on Monday. The postseason ban is the most significant of the additional penalties the NCAA announced in the wake of a multi-pronged scandal that rocked the UNC football program in 2010.

In addition to the postseason ban, the university will forfeit five football scholarships per season for the next three seasons. 

Former assistant coach John Blake, a central role in the scandal, has been given a “show-cause” provision for the next three years, essentially banning him from coaching in college during that time period.

In September, the North Carolina announced it would impose several penalties, including vacating all 16 wins for 2008 and 2009, reducing nine scholarships over the next three academic years and putting the program on two years of probation.
