After North Carolina’s football program suffered through a lost season due to rampant eligibility issues arising from players who received benefits, another Tar Heel may have jeopardized his own eligibility by attending a post-draft party for two of the players who were affected last year.

According to Joe Schad of ESPN.com, via our sister site CFT, the NCAA has met with UNC defensive end Quinton Coples regarding his presence at a D.C. event thrown by or for former North Carolina defensive linemen Robert Quinn and Marvin Austin.

As John Taylor of CFT points out, Austin’s presence at a Miami party triggered the investigation that wrecked North Carolina’s 2010 season.

    I think it’s ridiculious that college football is so knit picky about attending a friends party.

    This is insane. They are investigating whether he got free food and beverages. It was a party for heaven sakes. This is from NCAA officials who make millions off the backs of these kids. Let’s ruin the kids life over some potato chips and beer.

    I’m not sure about the free hotel accommodations or free transportation or even the free drinks in the club, but in D.C., you sure can bet that he got some free a$$!

    @ftblfan9

    No they are not. They are investigating whether an agent paid for plane tickets, hotel accommodations, and his bar tab. You know, the same thing they found the first time…………

    The NCAA is a joke. An anachronistic organization that treats the students like cattle. I cannot see how anyone can be a fan.
