Young sportswriter denigrates UNC and the ACC in announcing NCAA investigation

North Carolina football finds itself under investigation by the NCAA for possible violations.

While the school acknowledges an investigation, no details have been provided. ESPN.com's Joe Schad reports that UNC football players, including defensive tackle Marvin Austin, were interviewed by the NCAA this week. They were asked questions about agents and whether anyone had received gifts or extra benefits, his source says.

In announcing the investigation, a youngish "sportswriter" for SBnation.com named Holly Anderson wrote, "UNC, hardly the highest-profile program even in the slow-zombie ACC, suddenly finds itself under some adorably nebulous investigation by the NCAA for possible violations within the football program."

The 28-year-old Anderson, an Aquarius by the way, describes herself as "Tennessee-born, Atlanta-based by way of Los Angeles." She also takes a dig at the highly respected and award-winning reporter Joe Schad, who broke the details of the story. She says Schad's "sources range from 'somebody's cousin' to 'the internet.'"

At least Anderson is a Red Sox fan ... and attractive.
