After a closer reading, though, it's sort of hard to argue the point: the NCAA has no control over how the University of North Carolina administers its corrupt athletic program and certainly has no day-to-day control over what happens at UNC.
According to a law suit filed by former UNC athletes Rashanda McCants (insert Frau Blucher/horse/McCants joke here) and Devon Ramsey, the NCAA knew of other incidents for over 100 years and has refused to implement adequate monitoring systems.
The way the NCAA works is that the member schools agree to certain standards and allow the Association a certain amount of ability to discipline schools.
But it has no subpoena power and does not investigate preemptively. It only acts when a member school or someone brings it information, and it only does what member schools tell it to do.
In other words, McCants is basically suing UNC twice and a bunch of other schools too. It's kind of like the old definition of chutzpah: killing your parents and begging for mercy because you're an orphan.
