You can't imagine how bad it is. Hundreds of no-show classes. 551 known grade changes due to pressure from coaches on teachers, agents paying players, last national championship team had 7 players in the AFAM major to keep them eligible. 9 illegal players on the team. A library of term papers that athletes could go on line and check out and turn in. Testes given to players to take home days before they had to take the tests. Players that truly could not read.  Could post lots of articles here. Biggest NCAA scandal ever. Former governor came in and did an investigation but his coverup got discovered. Cars for players in basketball and football. One kid had 13 unpaid parking tickets. Problem was tickets are matter of public record. Tracing the tag numbers back revealed kid had 6 new cars over a 15 month period.mcars traced back to a company owned by a wealthy alumni and a former drug runner and registered agent. I could write a book.

Why am I not surprised at these revelations about UNC.  You could pick just about any SEC, ACC, Big 8 (or whatever they are called) school, and find that the majority of men's football and basketball players are not students of any kind.  Calling them student althletes is being totally disrespectful to the concept of students.

Alan Iverson being admitted to any college, let alone Georgetown, tells you everything you need to know about big time college hoops.  Evil or Very Mad
