North Carolina Having Athletes Take Fake Classes?

Remember back in October when BSP wrote “Since When Does the Criminal Decide His Fate?” It was about a tutor who had quit UNC when an athlete, P.J. Hairston had been arrested after a number of moving violations.

The tutor wrote:

If I were arrested driving with no license, illegal drugs and a gun in a felon’s car, my employment at this University would end immediately.

Correct. I suggested Hairston could punch Roy Williams wife in the face, and Williams would try and rationalize the punch. Some of you didn’t like the tone of my post, where I suggested Williams was no goody two-shoes.

Now, Rashad McCants, a key player on North Carolina’s 2005 National Title team, states he was kept eligible by taking bogus classes in the Afro-American studies program:

Former North Carolina star Rashad McCants has leveled academic fraud charges at his former school and has implicated his one-time coach, Roy Williams, while doing so.

Looks like there’s more evidence to look into. And North Carolina fan, you can put your head in the sand and pretend Dean Smith is still there; that nothing’s wrong with your program, and Roy Williams is a saint. It’s just not true. And look, BSP doesn’t hate North Carolina. At least, not very much. We didn’t drive home dislike like we did with Duke (“Duke-bags” being one of our douchery categories).

Sorry, North Carolina. We’re going to see you get put on probation, IF the NCAA is actually doing its job. Oh wait, it’s not? The NCAA’s more concerned about a kid taking $110 from an agent than maintaining eligibility through legitimate collegiate courses? Oh well. We’ll just watch your program slowly slide into the abyss. Nothing lasts forever.

Can’t wait till Kentucky joins you.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
