I'm not a Duke or UNC fan and I really don't care who is or isn't.
The kid has an obvious association with a convicted felon. The NCAA usually has issues with this. Not to mention the fact he is receiving perks from said convicted felon that could be in violation of NCAA rules.
Open your eyes and face some reality- where there's smoke (like, from a gun or a fattie) there's usually fire.
Let me ask you this- does this happen if it's the 15th man on the bench of a lesser-known school? I'm guessing not- scholarship gone, kicked off team, etc.
I work for a college football team, so I'm quite aware of the rules and regulations.
I can guarantee you that the NCAA doesn't care about any of the charges that Hairston received because the NCAA only looks out for one thing, themselves.
The NCAA is and will be involved, just because your local newspaper hasn't reported about it, does not mean they aren't involved.
Just so you know, every school has a compliance officer to make sure that rules are not broken... here is one of those rules... A coach can give his player a bagel, but that player must pay for his own cream cheese (this is an actual rule regarding per diems and giving food to players).
Recently a player at the college I work at got arrested for attempted robbery and guess what... he's still on the team because he didn't break any NCAA violations.
The smart thing for UNC to do is to wait until the NCAA has ruled to make a decision on Hairston. With Hairston and McDonald being the only players under scrutiny, there probably won't be a post-season ban and at the very most Hairston will be suspended for a year.
All I have to say is if you don't know the rules, don't make yourself out to be all high and mighty.
