North Carolina athletic director Bubba Cunningham on the notion that the Tar Heels escaped NCAA punishment for vast academic improprieties: "We had some things that occurred that we haven't been proud of. We've been very open and transparent in attempting to follow the various processes we've been involved in … Unfortunately, sometimes the behavior that you're not proud of just doesn't quite fit into a bylaw or a rule or something, and that's what we've been talking about for five years. We're not proud of the behavior, but we didn't think it violated the bylaw."
