Tar Heels Tarred?

Posted on: August 14, 2012 2:55 pm
 
Well, the NCAA has another chance to play it's hypocritical games- this time though with one of the more "respected" public universities in the country- UNC Chapel Hill.

It appears that the school has been making up fake classes for a decade so that the hoops and fb athletes can get passing grades without the work.

Man, all sorts of humorous and/or sad ways to go with this.

1. Gee, did Vince Carter take any of these classes when he graduated in the early 2000's?!

2. How many wins will the NCAA take away from the Tar Heels? Gee, if this keeps up. nobody will have any wins. For example, Miami-UNC and UNC- Florida St. I guess those games weren't even played. It's like it was a scoreless tie!

3. What's worse? Having a convicted felon being your sole source of testimony that a player got a free house for his mom or there has been a decade long system of academic fraud going on in a university? We already know that paying players is worse in the NCAA's eyes than covering up pedophilia for a decade; so maybe I shouldn't go there.

4. The NCAA can once again re-affirm how great Duke by bashing the Heels. After all, Duke remains unrepentent and unpunished after the lacrosse scandal.

5. I'm hoping the NCAA will not strip UNC of anything. I'm sure they will though. Yea, like the fans aren't going to remember those wins b/c they are stricken from the record. NOTHING satisfies like the on-field triumph. That can't be undone. It's sort of like the Belarus woman who was stripped of her gold medal. The Chinese woman who got bronze and the NZ woman who won gold then never got the adulation of the crowd and hearing the anthem played. Get over these punishments. They're stupid and silly.

6. No, fine the #!0?&!! out of UNC. Make PSU $60-70 mil fine seems like chump change. That will get UNC's attention.



And then finally, we can have the schools properly rebel against the NCAA and leave their hypocritical dictatorship.

That would be great for everybody.

Sorry, High Point. I can't get the link to post here.

Do a search for "Johnson and Taylor: Penn State, Duke and Integrity" and you should end up with a Wall Street Journal Online article on it.

High Point, I apologize for not responding earlier on this as I did not see it until now.

I was pointing more at Duke and how they got off scot-free after how they treated their own students. The Gang of 88, the reward for Broadhead after how poorly he handled it. Penn St. looks downright responsible in their aftermath handling compared to Duke.

Here is an article for you to read on this-  [http://online.wsj.com/article/SB100

ark- Agreed that stripping wins is ludicrous. Now they're going after Butch Davis personal cell phone records.

I'm no Duke fan and can agree with you on all your points but for #4.  The lacrosse team were innocent and their accuser was arrested and charged with attempted murder of her boy friend in 2010. Now Myron Piggie - A former crack dealer and AAU coach who illegally paid Duke player Corey Maggette now thats one Duke got away with.
