    UNC report finds 18 years of academic fraud to keep athletes playing



    From 1993 to 2011, the university's African and Afro-American classes aided students to the point of keeping them on course to graduate or to grant them academic eligibility for athletics. The activity was led by now-retired department secretary Deborah Crowder.

    Lets keep it real.....
    When a star athlete gets to college and can't read or write, what are you to do?
    You can't put him in a class with regular humans?
    .....right Robin?

    this is news why exactly?

    i've been ranting about this shit for years. it's bullshit. i don't care how much money these "student" athletes bring in. there are heartbroken kids out there who STUDY and have BRAINS and for some odd reason wanted to go to UNC and didn't get in so JaCommaToTheTopMal could bounce a ball.

    it's criminal.

    I guess the retribution is when the "student" finally gets into the NBA or NFL, and then has a career ending injury. Since numb nuts ball catcher never went to a real class, he is selling used cars or appliances at best buy.

    Back in my day the colored basketball players at Washington State took basket weaving classes, and they were very good at it.

    What really makes me sad is when you watch a NFL game, and each player announces the colleges they went to. Then you hear some kid say " John Smith, Rosa Parks HIGH SCHOOL". If the kid ever gets hurt in the pros, he doesn't even have a fake college degree to fall back on.

    "Oh, geez, Coach Williams, I'm sorry. I didn't realize your wife underwent a 5 hour surgery earlier this year.

    Please disregard any impertinent questions I may have asked you regarding the two decades of academic fraud your staff has orchestrated with the African American "Studies" Department and accept my apologies."


    Those are some tough nosed, hard edge journalists they've got working the hoops beat out there at Chapel Hill. Barry's gotta get some of these boys working with Josh Earnest in the WH press room. :jj:

    my guess is over 90% of sports colleges do this in one way or another

    how would he feel if the doctor who did the surgery passed his classes regardless of knowledge of the subject?

    all this shit has to stop.

    They don't even give athletic scholarships in the Ivy League. They're asking kids to spend 70 grand a year, or whatever it costs now, to go there and also spend 3-4 hours a day on football, in addition to their studies. 30 game losing streaks should be expected.

    but they're choosing to go there. No one is maing them, and in the end they'll have an education, and a diploma that just might be worth more than the paper on which it is printed.
