UNC Academic Scandal

556 posts in this topic

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.

Why wouldn't you just post a link so we could all see and discuss?

 

So you honestly believe there is no validity to what all these former unc players or faculty are saying?  They all have the same story!

 

Let's not forget that McCants did make the Dean's list!

I believe there is validity to the story, however I'm withholding judgement on Roy.

Notice McCants says he thinks Roy knew. In legal prosecution, the word thinks is associated with doubt meaning that he (or whoever the person of discussion is) may not be guilty.... and to be proven guilty it has to be 'beyond the shadow of a doubt.'

For reference....

Read the third, fourth, and fifth paragraph.

That sounds like a bitter former player to me.

I also find it funny that Sean May, Raymond Felton, Jawad Williams, Marvin Williams, Ty Lawson, Danny Green, Tyler Hansbrough etc... don't share the same views as McCants.

In actuality the only person that ever spoke out against Williams was McCants, not even the Wear twins or Larry Drew had anything negative to say about Coach Williams.

McCants is just a bitter guy that couldn't hack it in the league.

McAdoo, Bishop, Deunta Williams, and now McCant's.  There are a few more but those are the ones off the top of my head and they all say the same thing along with MW, widespread academic fraud that spilled over into basketball.

Well if McCants knew that he was in trouble academically I am sure roy knew that as well.

My position has been, and still is, that there was obviously something going on. ABC-ers have their heads in the sand if they truly believe these types of actions are isolated to just UNC - they happen everywhere. ABC-ers won't engage in that conversation because it's UNC in the middle of the poo storm - I get it and fans have to take it. If we don't have enough proof that the NCAA and the entire college athletics system is a complete fraud on a national level, then I'm not sure what evidence we're waiting for to prove that. 

 

But watching the haters praise former entitled and disgruntled UNC athletes who either got in trouble or never lived up to their potential for opportunistically coming forward to "do the right thing" is laughable. You guys want to take these jerks with character issues at their word over the 100s of former players who rebut their statements. Hell, even Julius Hodge is calling the guy out as a fraud.

You just said he was on the Dean's List meaning he wasn't in trouble academically. Coaches only get reports when players are failing classes or their GPA is getting close to them being academically intelligible.

What character issues do McAdoo, Bishop, and Deunta Williams have? Does MW also have character issues? If Duke had former faculty and former players coming out saying they took fake classes unc fans would be acting the same way. How many unc fans wanted the 2010 banner to come down because of the Thomas situation?

I think the biggest issue here is the transcript for McCants and what it shows. The guy failing multiple classes along with multiple D's but then he takes all AFAM courses one semester and makes straight A's and is on the Deans list, come on.

Yeah he was on the Deans list the one semester he took all AFAM classes the other semesters were littered with D's and F's.

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
