Twitter reacts to NCAA ruling on the University of North Carolina

It’s a big day for the University of North Carolina and its fans, what with the announcement coming from the NCAA that no major penalties or sanctions would be handed down to the school.

After three-plus years, the investigation that led to the school’s constant public scrutiny as well as the loss of numerous recruits, is finally over.

And still, the Tar Heels managed to accomplish what most programs can’t, even when not under the NCAA’s microscope.

Over the past two years, the Tar Heels have won 66 games and appeared in the national championship each season. And in 2017, North Carolina won its seventh national championship in program history.

Now, having overcome the NCAA’s inexcusably long investigation while still maintaining the school’s tradition of excellence on the court, players and fans alike are thrilled.

Check out some of the Twitter reactions from players, fans and media after the NCAA made its announcement on Friday morning that the Committee on Infractions hearing panel could not conclude that the school had violated NCAA academic rules.

Current North Carolina point guard Joel Berry II and former Tar Heels’ point guard Bobby Frasor both put in their two cents after the announcement:

So did the father of the Tar Heels’ newest commit, five-star prospect Nassir Little.

College basketball experts and media types had some thoughts on the matter as well.

And then came some of the more humorous reactions:
