UNC AD says PJ Hairston will play this season

87 posts in this topic

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.

 

In my honest opinion, and this is based on what we know now and that there won't be:

 

1. evidence he's taking money from boosters

2. he gets arrested or continues to get caught breaking the law

 

He'll miss 2-6 games. If I had to guess an exact number, I'd probably say 5. Game #6 is against MSU in the ACC/B10 showdown. 

 

He's suspended now "indefinitely" so it wouldn't surprise me if Coach Williams reinstated him after missing a few of the warm up games in November, citing that "PJ has served his suspension" ...etc

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. 

 

The school has the power to kick an athlete off the team as they see fit. It's funny how nobody cares about the gun/dope now when in fact they were just as much of a problem for the program as the car is/was. It also amazes me how the police weren't able to pin that gun on anyone in the car. 

 

I'm not arguing about Hairston getting suspended because it's certainly going to happen. It's just a matter of how many games. 

 

That Thomas dude is obviously a criminal and him lawyering up was a good thing. He doesn't have to talk to ANYONE and it's certainly now what you know it's what you can prove. Ask Lance Thomas.

I agree if it's left up to roy he misses no more then 5 games but 1.  Will it be left up to roy and 2.  If it is left up to roy do you risk playing him when he is being investigated for impermissible benefits, because that could cost you to forfeit games he played in if he is eventually ruled ineligible.

It's also amazing how PJ, being the driver, gets all his charges dropped while the other guys don't.  Driver who doesn't have a license stops short of a checkpoint and switches seats with a passenger, weed found in the car and more weed and a gun found outside the car and the driver gets off while the other two passengers don't.

 

You are right Fats doesn't have to talk but Faulcon's mother is very upset about PJ getting off and her son getting convicted so I think that she has talked with Prisbell and that is what his next story is about and if she knows some of unc's "secrets" it could get very interesting.

NCAA takes forever on crap like this. Miami still is being investigated and there's a good chance those official NCAA sanctions may never even happen now. 

 

Like I said, and I'm standing by this, Hairston suits up for Duke/NCSU next season unless a legitimate booster/$$$ link between he/hairston/blackstock is PROVEN or he continues his reckless summer of not giving a fug. 

 

On another note - did you miss me while I was on my little huddle timeout?

Hairston wasn't driving with a suspended DL. To my knowledge, he was just caught driving with out his DL on him. I'm guilty of leaving the house sometime and forgetting my wallet. 

 

Faulcon has already "admitted" to everything and it would surprise me that a D2 college basketball players mom would have any sort of damning EVIDENCE (not opinion or hearsay) on a very powerful and prestigious university. And it's not like Faulcon is getting locked up. Also, the AP reports I've read have stated that if Faulcon completes 10 hrs community service, his charges would be dropped as well. That's certainly getting off easy. I wonder what would have happened to Mr.Faulcon if PJ wasn't in the car when they were arrested. 

 

If any of what you said is true about Prisbell getting to Faulcon's mom....to quote the great Walter White, she better "tread lightly."

 

Hairston is a first round draft pick as long as he keeps his nose clean. Money talks!

I haven't seen or read that anywhere so please link.

 

It would surprise you that Faulcon, who is PJ's friend, would know the illicit activities that he is associated with?  

 

He is certainly not getting off as easily as PJ.

I'm not going to waste time of my day looking for this. You can search for it yourself if it concerns you that much. 

 

Getting probation, not losing your scholarship, and completion of a drug assessment/CS certainly is getting off easy considering what was allegedly going on when they went through the checkpoint. That right there is an admission of guilt. He took the charges, PJ didn't. What do you think would happen to YOUR son if he was arrested with a sizeable amount of pot, no license, and a mysterious gun 10 feet from the car? Do you think he would have to do 10 hrs CS and only spend a few hours in a county jail cell? What about 6 months UNSUPERVISED probation? 

 

You first said that Faulcon's mom maybe had info on UNC (I'd be willing to bet she has NEVER stepped foot 10 miles away from UNC's campus, especially the athletic facilities) and now you think it's Faulcon who has the dirt? Which one is it? I'm not criticizing her for defending her son, but the dude got off almost as easy as Hairston did and like I said, what do you think would have happened to Faulcon if he were arrested and Hairston was not in the vehicle?

 

I've seen the reports that rented cars linked to Thomas have received parking tickets on UNC's campus the past year or so. Who do you think was driving those? Was it PJ? Was it McDonald? Was it a UNC player? 

 

Also, latest report from your boy Prisbell indicates that neither UNC or NCAA have contacted Thomas' lawyers. Who do you think that works in favor for?
