A few tidbits from linked story....

The corruption of academics at the University of North Carolina’s Chapel Hill campus could turn into the most revelatory of all of the undergraduate sports scandals in recent memory.

The rot in Chapel Hill undermines UNC’s reputation as one of the nation’s finest public institutions of higher learning. Officials created classes that did not meet. That’s not the only reason more scrutiny is needed. There’s also the particularly pernicious way that the school’s African and Afro-American Studies Department has been used to inflate the GPAs of basketball and football players. The corruption of a scholarly discipline devoted to black history and culture underscores a racial subtext to the exploitation of college athletes that typically goes unidentified in polite discussion. (UNC’s former longtime Afro-Am chairman, Julius Nyang’oro, has been criminally indicted for fraud.)

....Even before that happens, according to Smith, one or more well-positioned whistle-blowers are likely to go public and start naming names if they think the powers that be are planning to isolate Crowder and Nyang’oro as the sole villains. This thing goes much higher, and there’s much more to come from Chapel Hill.

Let me get this straight. We're going to be "gifted" with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and will be fined for if we don't, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn't read it but exempts itself from it, signed by a president who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese and financed by a country that's broke.

What could possibly go wrong?

That one just won't go away; definitely turned into the gift that just keeps on giving for fans of rival ACC teams.

I can't believe it hasn't blown completely up on UNC...not just as a conference rivalry thing or wishing bad things on UNC in particular...there were university officials who OK'd the creation of classes that did not exist at all in order to get athletes' grades showing as excelling.  

This isn't just an athletic department or just basketball or just football....this is outright fraud by a university who puffs its chest out and lifts its chin up while claiming to be one of the top academic institutions in the land.  This is beyond cheating via benefits, money or handing out jobs to family members - if there are more whistle blowers waiting in the wings on this as the article claims, the last thing UNC will be worried about is a simple bowl ban or removal of a few schollies.

Let me get this straight. We're going to be "gifted" with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and will be fined for if we don't, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn't read it but exempts itself from it, signed by a president who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese and financed by a country that's broke.

This sounds like the definition of a lack of institutional control.

Sounds like UNC better brace themselves for an NCAA light fine and three scholorships taken away.

Updating...

Former UNC football player Michael McAdoo ties UNC academic counselors to "no-show classes" and states that academic environment in Chapel Hill for student-athletes is "a scam"
Story linkage:  http://www.newsobser...counselors.html

Earlier this week, Mary Willingham, the UNC learning specialist who was the whistle blower on the supposed "lecture style classes" that never met was named a witness on the side of former NCAA student-athletes who are part of a class action lawsuit against the NCAA...everyone knows this case as the Ed O'Bannon case --- former players who think they should be compensated for their playing days in college & that a free education is not compensation enough.  O'Bannon sued because his likeness was used by EA Sports in a game licensed by the NCAA for which he was never paid.


PDF of Willingham statement**:  http://s3.documentcl...bannon-case.pdf

**read this before jumping to conclusions,  y'all ;)


....anyone think this will go anywhere?  Yea, me neither.  NCAA-Indianapolis might see a generous donation headed their way from Central NC in a brown paper bag, but that's about it.... <_<  Stay tuned....

Let me get this straight. We're going to be "gifted" with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and will be fined for if we don't, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn't read it but exempts itself from it, signed by a president who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese and financed by a country that's broke.

It all sounded this bad for Miami too, and they're still here. The NCAA will never stop the corruption of the programs under their banner.
