Like many days out of the year, it hasn’t been a good day of PR for the NCAA.
Earlier Friday morning, the NCAA announced it would not penalize the North Carolina Athletic Department after a 3+ year investigation into repeated academic fraud allegations involving student athletes.
The takes have been hot ( and probably justified), but none greater than what happened to the NCAA’s Wikipedia page:

There’s hidden edits all over the place on this one. But from calling the NCAA “spineless” to changing the location of its headquarters to “The wallets of major schools and apparel companies,” whoever altered this page wasn’t messing around.
At least the NCAA is now clear of this scandal as it deals with the FBI’s investigation and the start of the 2017-18 season in the coming weeks.
