I'm still trying to figure out the groundbreaking material that Wainstein's report has exposed... We already knew what was happening. Players were taking classes that weren't administered or monitored by professors, they wrote a paper, they got a grade they didn't deserve. He confirmed that.
Only thing I found interesting was how long it had been going on... Other than that, so what? People have been fired, our football program is still suffering due to sanctions that were placed on it at the end of Davis' tenure. What more do people want?
Also interesting, IIRC, his report showed that something like only 3k (out of a countless number of students) over 18 years took the classes. Again, it was limited to one department and Crowder was pretty much the one orchestrating all of it. What is so sensational about that compared to what we knew already? I don't get it.
UNC Haters got it... there's the report... it confirmed what was already known. The AFAM dept. had fake classes that they used to help boost GPAs, pretty much under the actions of one person who oversaw it from start to finish. Great.
What I've gathered...and this is from what I've heard/read and I haven't read thoroughly enough to really know what I talking about....is the evidence that these academic advisors were communicating with the coaches. They were letting the coaches know what the players needed to do to stay eligible and confirming what grades they needed. That feels like new info to me and is certainly troubling.
