Argyle A.M. - August 17, 2017

Happy Thursday!
Turner here with your Tar Heel headlines.

Yesterday was day one of Carolina's hearing before the NCAA Committee on Infractions in Nashville. As it was a closed session, there was very little to report. The hearing continues today. Yay.

Later today on AR, Bryce Lapping has a story on the battle at a very important position - kicker.

Thanks for reading Argyle A.M. today and every weekday!

Former UNC student has different AfAm perspective

I somehow missed this yesterday: The Sporting News has a first-person column from John Nance, who earned his Carolina degree at the age of 55 in 2007. Nance offers a different take on what we've often heard about the African-American Studies Department at Carolina and independent studies at UNC. It's a good read.
