Now the real waiting begins for North Carolina

The NCAA vs. UNC case has gone on for more than three years. Almost 15 hours of back-and-forth over two days, as expected, didn't lead to any decisions. But when it comes -- possibly months from now -- it could still hold major implications.

UNC awaits NCAA ruling in academic case

North Carolina has wrapped up a two-day hearing with an NCAA infractions committee panel that will decide whether the school faces penalties tied to its multi-year academic scandal.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

North Carolina has opted not to issue a statement following two days in front of the NCAA Committee on Infractions. So after about 15 hours worth of discussions, both sides left Nashville with no comment. Next step is a decision from the committee about possible sanctions.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

North Carolina's hearing in front of the NCAA Committee on Infractions is now over. Roy Williams and Sylvia Hatchell just left the meeting room with other UNC officials. A statement from the university is expected soon. All that's left now is waiting on a decision from the committee, and that could take months.
