UNC WR Plagiarized An Essay About Chickens Written By an 11-Year-Old

Recommended Posts

As the spring 2011 semester wound to a close, UNC-Chapel Hill football player Erik Highsmith had nothing to show for the blog students were supposed to contribute to for a communications class, his instructor said. The blog accounted for 30 percent of a student's grade.

Highsmith wrote two posts in seven days. The first was about poultry farming, the second about people and pets.

Very little of either post was in his own words.

The first entry was virtually identical to a passage on an education website written by four 11-year-olds for their peers. The second mirrored much of an essay someone posted on Urch.com, a website that helps people prepare for the SAT, GRE and other college entry exams.

All that talent obtained and retained illegally,

All of the fake classes set up to ensure that their idiot players can stay in school,

All of the damage done to the reputation of that school,

All of the investigations that have occurred and which are still ongoing...

....and they still lose to Duke.
