Why the 4-game absence of Malik Carney will cost UNC football - ACCSports.com

North Carolina football suspended 13 players for the sale of school-issued sneakers, which occurred back in January. That’s a big chunk of the roster that will miss at least one game; of that group, though, nine players will miss four games.
In that group of nine, quarterback Chazz Surratt, who was possibly in line to start the opener against Cal, seems to draw the most attention. However, there’s a bigger piece UNC will be without for a third of the season: defensive end Malik Carney.
Carney will sit against East Carolina, Central Florida, Pittsburgh and Virginia Tech.

Quick Numbers
Malik Carney is one of the most experienced players on North Carolina’s roster, and a disruptor off the edge. Now a senior, Carney enters the 2018 season with 11 career sacks, including 5.5 in 2017, and 20.5 tackles for loss. Carney was one of 18 ACC players last season with at least 12 tackles for loss.
Carney, who forced two fumbles a season ago, also led UNC with 12 run stuffs — tackles at or behind the line of scrimmage — according to Football Study Hall.
Sophomore defensive end Tomon Fox, a promising player, is also suspended for four games, too. The NCAA allowed UNC to stagger the suspensions of Carney and Fox, who had four sacks and two run stuffs in 2017.
Fox will sit out against Miami, Syracuse, Virginia and Georgia Tech.
For all of North Carolina’s struggles last season, and despite the injuries, UNC’s defensive line ranked 25th in the FBS in Havoc Rate (6.8 percent), per Football Study Hall. This is bad news for a defense that ranked outside the top 75 nationally in both rushing and passing S&P+, according to Football Study Hall.

If it's one thing that "sneakerheads" know how to do, it's show off. Those pictures circulating on Instagram made their way back to UNC and the players who sold their pairs were punished. I wonder if they have to donate the money they received. Those player exclusives can fetch well over $1,000.

Too bad the NCAA didn't require the suspensions take place during conference play.

I have to say that when you brand your college sports teams with a rare and high demand brand like Jordan(1 of 2 college teams, correct? The other Michigan) ; you are gonna run this risk with the apparel being on high demand. Just another Nike shoe wouldn't get the same price.

These kids also should have known better, you can attend a fictitious class, but you cant make $$$ off your free issued gear.

They're going to run out of North Carolina schools to put on probation to protect the prodigal child.
