Sweet Jesus if you took that literally you may have just earned an AFAM degree from UNC.

 

 

Speeding ticket (everybody speeds!) instead of shooting. Better? 

 

You said it, not me Einstein.  You can't expect to use inflammatory bullshit to back up your argument and not expect to be called on it.

It's funny that is the only thing you got out of his post.  He was simply trying to explain to you that just because other people do it doesn't mean that you should do it, because when they are caught there will be consequences.  If you have kids I hope you have taught them this very lesson.

I don't mind the point, I mind the hyperbole.  I believe all the big schools do this to some degree.  I believe the NCAA is aware of it but don't really want to bring the hammer down every time something is reported to them because of the financial implications of not having some of these players play for them. 

 

Personally I don't care one way or the other about all of this.  The NCAA will continue to rake in the cash, unless of course they actually do start holding all athletes to the same standard as regular students.  The athletes will continue half assing their way through school so they can get their paycheck at the end.  Nothing will change.

The "well, other universities probably do it too" argument is beyond old at this point. Yeah, no poo others do it. Some have been caught in the past and punished. Clemson, FSU, Minnesota, USC, Kentucky, NC State, FSU, etc. off the top of my head have all been caught doing things deemed illegal. They also all paid the price. Some probably still do it, maybe even a larger scale than Carolina. But it's now been proven that for 18 years...18 years...that Carolina had an academic/athletic/institutional problem (Chancellor Folt's words). Own up to it, FIX it, and move on. Others doing it will get their due justice in time, as they should.

 

 

But please, stop with the "well others do it tooooo!" crap. If you shoot a guy, walk into a court room and say, well Mr. Judge, people shoot other people all of the time!...let's see how that works out as a defense. 

 

Yeah because shooting someone and cheating on a paper are totally the same thing.

I find it hard to believe that other universities don't do similar things.  While I don't believe everything that McCants says, I do believe there is a problem throughout the NCAA.  Let's face it, it's all about money for both the universities and the star players.
