North Carolina defensive end Quinton Coples is reportedly being investigated by the NCAA for his actions at a post-draft party hosted by Marvin Austin and Robert Quinn, according to ESPN.
Coples is an early candidate to be the No. 1 overall selection in the 2012 NFL Draft (assuming the team at No. 1 doesn’t need a quarterback).
According to the ESPN report: “The NCAA wants to know how Coples paid for his travel to the party, who paid for his admission and his hotel, and if he accepted any free food or drink.”
Hopefully there’s something more to the story that isn’t being reported, because if the NCAA investigates every player who travels to another city and attends a party it’s going to be along summer. At some point the NCAA needs to just let college kids be college kids and stop monitoring their every move.
