Lol, it was leaked by a UNC professor who attended a retreat with Cunningham.  I'm pretty sure that retard is going to be fired today.

Its called PR. And it looks like it worked judging on how the media ran with it. Bubba did the same thing during the football scandal. He proclaimed that based on what he knew UNC would NOT receive a postseason bowl ban. Guess what happened?

So you think this was a PR move?  By the school?  Really, you believe that?

A PR move by the AD telling some big time unc donors that PJ WILL play this season? Of course, what else is he going to tell them? Bubba doesn't know if PJ will even be deemed eligible by the NCAA so yeah I think him saying that is a PR move.

From all I've read and heard about this situation, I'd say Bubba is probably spot on with his assessment.  I don't think the NCAA will hand down anything, but I do think that the school will probably hold PJ out until January.

The only way Hairston does not suit up against Duke and NCState this year is if the NCAA finds a legitimate booster link between Hairston, Thomas, and/or Blackstock. This is a fact. The gun/weed thing has been dropped and is no longer an issue. 

 

The only other way Hairston is thrown off the team is he continues his foolish behavior and is cited/arrested again before the season starts up in a few months....which is certainly a possibility based on his track record.

Why?  So a player receives impermissible benefits and the NCAA just looks the other way?  CJ Leslie got a suspension for borrowing a friends car and PJ has gotten tickets twice in rentals that were from a felon.  I am not real sure how you think that the NCAA doesn't do anything.

The weed and gun were never an NCAA issue, they were a school issue, and from the beginning unc made it apparent they weren't an issue.  The problem is the rental cars and them being an impermissible benefit and that's what the NCAA cares about.  Eric Prisbell has another story about the PJ situation that's about to drop so it will be interesting to see what new info he found.

    • SSDs are mostly good if you need fast read or write speeds, eg watching or editing large files like raw audio or video.  They won't help much for standard stuff, and are one of the larger premium price points.  They are very nice in that they produce less heat and are more stable, no spinning discs, but you won't notice much of a performance gain for general use. The biggest bang for your buck is RAM.  I always get as much RAM as I can afford.  That will improve performance of everything on the system.  Upgrade CPU/cores next, for overall performance. Again, depending on what you're doing, the graphics card can make as big a difference as anything else.  That's mostly for gaming and video playing/editing, however.  But with more and more video streaming going on, the graphics card can be very helpful to improve performance and quality.
