"The VA Scandals: Death by Bureaucracy"
"You wouldn't believe how important it is for car makers to get their color choices right"

"SACS, Lies and Audiotapes"

Mary Willingham and Jay Smith posted this before the amended notice of allegation against UNC-CH was released. It's deeply felt and strongly argued.

Indeed, many of the actors at UNC who facilitated shameful athletics favoritism over the years are still with us on the campus; some of them exercise positions of real influence. Over the past two years there has been a lot of rearranging of deck chairs on the good ship Carolina Way (though, to be fair, sometimes the deck chairs were simply left in the exact same spot.) But there have been no signs of a bold change in direction. Until Carol Folt, Jim Dean, and other leaders tell the world their plans for countering the influence and the long-established habits of the many athletics-friendly personnel at UNC, until they outline the steps they will take to overturn an institutional culture that fostered fraud and willful blindness for decades, skeptics will be right to scoff at the “70 reforms” and the diversion they were meant to create.

UPDATE: link fixed now.
