"

North Carolina cheated and prospered, now it's time for reckoning"

http://t.co/FqTX9NqV

I am all for finding out the truth but that's a bullshit article trying to get hits. Trust me, if we made up a major with fake classes we should get what's coming to us. But to compare AFAM circa 2011 with AFAM circa 2001 is HIGHLY IRRESPONSIBLE. And not every class in the major was bogus. I am sure there are plenty of people who major in that major who are actually students. I know a guy who took a couple classes. Were they easy? Hell yes, but there are easy classes in college. Even at fuging Harvard. Today's media loves sensationalizing things. Look, he wrote a fiery oped basically with no factual context whatsoever and no proof that any of the classes on Peppers' transcript are "fake."

The only thing factual that's come out in the last 2 days that's new (and I am even giving you this one even though it hasn't been confirmed) is that Julius Peppers is likely a freaking retard who majored in AFAM.

But if you guys want to run around screaming take all the banners down thats fine with me. If they do turn out to be true then we should lose something for sure and I will for once in my life be ashamed to be a Tar Heel. But I'm still a Tar Heel Born and Tar Heel Bred.

Please. Don't act like UNC fans wouldn't do the exact same thing if evidence of cheating by State was coming out. Anywhere in the country where two schools this big, this close to each other, who play each other in football and basketball, there's gonna be this kind of fan sniping. Alabama fans still give Auburn fans crap about Newton. Florida fans still talk about "Free Shoes University". If posters on this board had been the ones to uncover the Saints** bounty scandal, we'd be patting ourselves on the back and celebrating just like everyone at PackPride is. I'm sure it sucks to have to deal with bad news about your school's academic scandal that keeps getting dug up by your rivals after your IT professionals leave sensitive data laying around on public websites, but maybe you should be mad at the administration there for A)cheating and B)not doing a better job of covering up the cheating. But don't pretend State fans are doing anything different than what any other's schools fans would do, and don't pretend UNC fans wouldn't be gloating if they brought down the athletic department at State or Duke the same way.

lol, you know the difference? UNC fans dont actually obsess over everything State does. There is a reason the people on PackPride find stuff, its because they are constantly trying to find dirt on UNC. Comparing the two is laughable. Oh, and most UNC fans dont consider State their biggest rival (except for the older alums)

This is entirely correct. I got better things to do than worry about what State/Duke are doing.

I almost got into a fight, and I don't ever go out looking for trouble ever, with one of my GF's friend retarded yankee BF who happened to be a Duke basketball fan, Irish FB, NYY, Giants fan. He got in my face rubbing my nose in it a couple days after Rivers hit that huge shot in Feb. I kept my cool and laughed it off. His whole reasoning was "WELL CAROLINA FANS WOULD BE DOING IT TO US!" - uh, maybe some stupid fans would be but don't take your oppressed emotions out on me because some redneck carolina fan made fun of you. Like I said I kept my cool because it's my GF's friend.

Oh by the way, I saw him on St. Pattys Day a few days after the big LeHigh upset and gave him a wave and a smile with my Carolina hat on. The look on that pricks face was priceless.

I agree. Most UNC fans have a hard time considering State as a rival when they cheer for a completely different school in football

Carolina fans don't care about State?

Then why do they refer to State as MooU, Cow College, tractors and agriculture jokes, constantly reminding people near the State games that we're "not their rival", bring up the Jimmy V scandal, even in this thread, mentioning how they still out recruit us in football (how's that working out lately?).

If the shoe was on the other foot, Carolina fans would be all over this too. Imagine if Coach K got in this trouble, or TOB, who Carolina fans are positively sure badmouths the football program on the recruiting trail. But then again, admitting that as such wouldn't be part of the arrogant "Carolina Way".

Yes, all programs probably do cheat to an extent. The levels of which are what is different. Not to mention Carolina was too freaking dumb and arrogant to actually cover it up worth a crap.

Yes, nothing could come of this at all. The NCAA may not even come back to Chapel Hill. Personally, I don't care. It's just fun to watch all the State/Duke fans laugh while Carolina fans deny, deny, deny. The shoe could definitely be on the other foot a couple years from now and Carolina will do the same damn thing...so don't act like you guys won't. Carolina made this bed and instead of ignoring the giant elephant in the room, they should deal with it like the prestigious "public ivy" they are who wouldn't want their name dirtied anymore at the cost of protecting their athletic programs.

Every single UNC fan I know ( and I know more duke/ecu/state fans collectively) is a die hard Heels FB fans as well. And i get the feeling the three schools I just mentioned all hate Carolina more than they like their own school.

Duke BB fans are never, ever Duke FB fans.

Ecu fans aren't even aware that they have a basketball program.

I think the amount of carolina fans in here defending the program validates your argument as ignorant and dismissive.

A couple things- I never said Carolina fans didnt care about State (we do), its just that we care more about Duke. And State fans care so much about UNC that it borders on unhealthy. We would make fun of you if the scandal was reversed, but we dont care enough to do the investigation ourselves

Also, I dont think a single UNC fan on here has denied what has happened. The AFAM dept at UNC was clearly putting together bullshit classes and the athletic dept was taking advantage of that. I would like to think the school has already started dealing with the situation (firing those involved) and that the people in charge genuinely want to clean up the mess.

As for the NCAA implications, we dont know yet. Feel free to continue making baseless assumptions though while you hate on UNC ;)

I don't hate State FTR. I have 2 cousins who were awarded athletic scholarships there. One for men's basketball.

A lot of my best friends went there and I've had some awesome times visiting them when I was an hour away in Greenville. I did the hillsborough hike one year and east village is an awesome bar.

State wants to take Carolina out and it's obvious this is going to be the only way they can do it.

Welcome to Penn State of the South....just as corrupt but without the kiddie diddling!

Let's not jump to conclusions here.

There might have been kiddie diddling as well.

But the thing is, "doing the investigations ourselves" wasn't very hard. The McAdoo paper that became public was obviously plagiarized, you could tell after reading the first few sentences. The cheating was "discovered" by PackPride because it had been ignored by the professor, the administration, etc. The test transcript was dug up by a reporter, who was doing his job, and a poster on PackPride clicked around in the same directory and stumbled on the same transcript, but with Peppers' name on it. So it's not like we're breaking into buildings and thumbing through file cabinets or something. As far as the charge that State fans(or Duke/ECU fans) hate Carolina more than we love our own teams, the two are not mutually exclusive. Like most fans of major college sports teams, we hate our rivals while also pulling for our own team. I remember lots of UNC fans gloating after Duke lost to Lehigh in the tournament last year, and lots of UNC fans giving me crap after State started 2-3 in football last year. Like I said, if this board had found the bounty evidence and sent it to Goodell, Saints* fans would be whining about how we hate them more than we love the Panthers, and we'd be laughing at them the whole time.

If you're willing to spend time poking through UNC servers looking for something which legally shouldnt be there, then youre probably willing to waste a lot of your time looking for dirt on your rival team. So yeah, you kind of proved my point.

Though the fact they found it (when its a blatant violation of FERPA) points to another problem, which is that whoever does the server/ IT stuff at UNC is either incompetent or lazy. If they get the CS dept to do it they clearly dont give a poo about everyone else because they have their own servers and their stuff is quite secure
