UNC Academic Scandal

556 posts in this topic

Just thought maybe we needed a "catch all" for this topic.

 

http://espn.go.com/espn/otl/story/_/id/11036924/former-north-carolina-basketball-star-rashad-mccants-says-took-sham-classes

 

It's not a massive court leak that connects unc basketball to boosters and agents but it does link the championship team in '05 and roy to the fake grades and classes that unc has tried to avoid.  How many unc fans would now leave McCants off that $15 team now?

Being that McCants said this I take it worth a grain of salt.

Did he take fake classes, yeah probably. Did Roy Williams know about the classes, probably not.

McCants and his family both dislike UNC for some strange reason and this is McCants's chance to stir the pot and even lie if he wants too.

If Sean May said this, then I would be concerned.

I would. But I would have before, too.

I wonder how much he's getting paid to come forward? It's gotta be quite a large sum of money to never be able to return to UNC again.

He hates UNC, I doubt he's been back more than three times since he's graduated.

Him and his parents hate the school, Williams, the basketball program etc...

I guess they're mad that their boy never panned out in the league.

Why do all these former players and faculty members "hate" unc so much?  I mean do you really believe all these different people associated with unc have gotten together and lied because they hate unc so much?  How many more athletes need to come out and back up what MW has said for unc fans to pull their heads out of the sand?

I'm not posting any links because I already know how his family feels about Carolina.

Do yourself a favor and use Google.

He's not a fan of the university.

Maybe some credible people need to come out, not a professors report who has been dismissed, not a football player whose name is no longer affiliated with the university (as in UNC no longer claims them), or a basketball player whose father is on record saying that he dislikes Roy Williams.

Ask Sean May to come out, ask T.J. Yates to come out... Then you will have my attention.

I'm waiting for the Walmart UNC fans to come in here and say this doesn't matter...since they have nothing at stake like attending a college that actively participated in academic fraud.

    • I'd love it if someone could do a compare & contrast post on Corey Davis, Zay Jones, Ross and maybe one or two of the other top WR prospects, ranking them on Speed Route running / separation Hands (catch percentage) Durability Fit in our offense For me, Ross is off my board (at least in the 1st round) due to his knees / injury risk.  Davis seems promising but it's hard for me to imagine DG going with him at #8.  Seems like one of other players we are likely to have ranked higher (Thomas, Adams, Fournette, Howard) might be available at #8.  Barnett & Lattimore might be above Davis on our Board and have a pretty high chance of being there at #8... I don't watch much college football at all. (Have enough trouble watching NFL games here in West Africa)  Don't know enough about Zay Jones and any of the other potential round 2 WR prospects....
    • I think Panthers fans would lose their minds if we took Lattimore. But he would be a stud for sure and pairing him with JB24 would be nice.
