BREAKING: UNC broke no NCAA rules

113 posts in this topic

Oh look two posters who only care about the sports teams because they were too dumb in High School to get into UNC.

Which part of this wasn't true? Just because you don't like it doesn't make it not true. Why dont you come back and talk trash the week we're playing your alma mater, assuming we start scheduling the local community colleges. Anyway, yeah, TOB will be on the hot seat if we have a bad season, but he won't be fired after 2 games. UConn is an interesting matchup, they have a tough defense, hopefully we can find some consistency on offense this week.

So if a school wants to offer dozens of independent study courses with no syllabus and no instructor and hand out free As to everybody,

That.

I guess you haven't been following the story. That's what happened over at Chapel Hill. Guys were taking independent study courses that never met, turning in papers that any idiot could easily see we're plagiarized, having grades changed and signatures forged on records, etc. Say what you want about State fans on message boards, but when it takes them 30 seconds to realize a paper is blatantly ripped off, yet the tutor, the professor, and the student honor court at UNC saw no reason to suspect any wrongdoing, that leads me to believe something is going on. Again, every student and alum of UNC I've talked to is embarrassed and wants this whole mess cleaned up, no matter how much that may embarrass or hurt the sports teams. I don't take any joy in this happening, but I also want it cleaned up, I'd like to see the reputation of the state university system remain intact, obviously. As far as the rivalry, it's between NC State University and the University of North Carolina. You guys can choose a side and cheer from the sidelines if you want, but you're not part of it.

That thinking is absurd and frankly idiotic. I'm sorry but when i give money to the school and have my whole life and will continue to do so that makes me part of the rivalry. When my entire family extended or otherwise are all fans of NC schools throughout (wake state duke ecu) and we get together and have a great time watching the games and giving each other poo that makes me part of the rivalry. I didn't go to college. I chose to do my own thing and am doing very well. I think it's cute that you guys try to down people cause they didn't go to UNC as if that makes them not a fan. Most kids these days don't even go to a university that has D1 athletics. Get off your high horse.

Do you really, I mean really, think that irregularities that occurred in 9% of the classes in just 1 of the over 100 departments, programs, and curricula at UNC is reflective of the academic integrity of the university as a whole? If the answer to that question is yes, then I would suggest it is you who is unable to consider this situation objectively.

I don't think it devalues the degrees of graduates in other departments, but it certainly affects the university's reputation. This kind of fraud is a big deal in academia, that's why the faculty is so upset over there. And I never said you couldn't be a fan, but let's face it, you choose to root for the most popular team in the state, and the one that almost everyone who doesn't go to any college ends up rooting for. It's just like people who aren't from New York but somehow end up being Yankee fans, not that they're bandwagon jumpers or anything. For lifelong Oriole fans like myself, that's annoying. And for State students like myself, the UNC bandwagoners are annoying too, especially when they're getting pissed off at our fanbase for exposing fraud instead of getting pissed off at the people who committed the fraud.

My parents had been UNC fans since the 50s so naturally i became one.I just don't think it's fair to act like you are better than me especially since i didn't even go to college. I agree we have a lot of bandwagoners so i understand the intent behind it.

It hurts but i definitely think we can recover from it.

Look, I don't know if you're family has been UNC fans or whatever. I'm sure you see Cowboys fans in NC that aren't from Texas and think, "damn annoying Cowboys fans." Same with NY Yankee fans. They're annoying ass fanbases and UNC is the same way. Maybe you're not one of the bad ones, but the point is there are a lot of jackasses that didn't go to any school and choose to be Tarheel fans and then have the nerve to bitch that State students and alums are harming the reputation of their beloved university that they have nothing whatsoever to do with. So, for the record, if there's an ACC school that we have to play against and recruit against that's cheating, I support that cheating being exposed. When game week comes around, I have fun going back and forth, with all due respect, with students and alum from Chapel Hill. But when some dude starts talking crap because he choose to be a fan of the popular school down the road, I don't feel the need to show a whole lot of respect.

    • 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.
