It takes a lot of shadiness to keep a program underacheiving and mediocre for an extended period of time

Two of the most embarassing years for any school that I can remember.

Paying players, a tutor writing papers, having an agent on staff, firing their coaches, now it comes out that the head of a department was essentially making up grades for athletes. What is there about UNC that isn't just covered in scum? If I hear one more UNC fan/alum/current student yap about "the carolina way" or "excellence in the classroom and on the field" I might stroke out from laughing so hard. At this point I think that baseball might be the only legitimate sporting event left in Chapel Hill.

Holden Thorpe is going to get canned eventually...

dirty program is dirty

Please. The reason the hammered was dropped on them was because of the cover up from the players. The coaching staff kicked a ton of FB players off the team and the NCAA still over punished the program.

The NCAA is a corrupt bureaucracy. Like they give a poo about grades. They're just mad that they didn't get their grubby hands on some of the money that was be floating around from players.

If you think Carolina is the only school guilty of this you are an ignorant fool.

Thorpe does need to resign.

    • With all respect, the issue with your premise, Nanuq, is an assumption on your part.  I'm not of the mindset that "Hillary managed to lose." Once you've committed to that belief, there are few avenues to explore with respect to the future of the party. While there were definite missteps and poor decisions her campaign took along the way, there were also a few outside factors at play which helped sabotage the election. Look, the DNC has to answer some difficult questions and they also have to decide how they're going to approach 2018 and 2020. Tom Perez, although I liked the guy in the Obama administration, I don't care for his role in the DNC and I'd prefer him as a sort of interim guy until they party charts its course. Ease up, Nanuq. They'll come around. Trump is gonna Trump and the DNC already has enough ammunition to get them through the next 6 election cycles.... provided they use it wisely.
