    A whistleblower exposed fraudulent grades giving to UNC athletes. This paper is from a class called The Black Experience after 1865 designated AFAM41. This is no surprise but this is the school that had the legendary Dean Smith as head basketball coach and now is being coached by Roy Williams. UNC and Duke are looked as the pillars of the student athlete experience. Looks like Rodney is getting many chances.

    Have a link to the story? No name on the paper, seems odd.

    The many layers of this controversy may never be truly understood, but ESPN recently released a video dissecting the academic scandal. Bryan Graham, a writer for Sports Illustrated and The Atlantic magazine, took a screen grab of one scene from the video which appears to show a final paper for the AFAM 41 course. The paper is about Rosa Parks and according to the video and the screen grab, it received an A-.

    Racists!! Who's racist. I'm impressed with the time and thought this student athlete used to prepare this paper on Rosa Parks.

    This is nothing new...:grad:

    U of Iowa RB Ronnie Harmon(circa 82-85) had his transcript released after he was accused of accepting money from agents.

    "He recalled that after he was put on academic probation in May, 1985, he enrolled in a ``water colors painting`` course that summer to raise his average. Harmon said he received a ``D`` in the course."


    "Webb produced a copy of Harmon`s transcripts, which showed that Harmon never graduated from Iowa despite taking courses such as ``billiards,``

    ``coaching football,`` ``soccer`` and ``bowling
    .``"

    "Shortly after playing in the 1986 Rose Bowl game against UCLA, Harmon dropped out of school and began traveling back and forth from Iowa City to his home in New York City. Despite his absence, Harmon received a ``B`` in one course that final semester, according to his transcript."

    My buddy teaches high school and has shown me some of the papers kids hand in. The best one was by some girl with a stripper name who said WW2 started when Hitler invaded the Jews, and went on for 3 pages of absolute hilarity. Atleast she tried. He has also had 3 dudes hand in the exact same paper that they all separately purchased from the same website.

    I wonder what a teacher does when they get an absolute piece of garbage like that. Do they just focus on the sentence structure and mechanics? :jj:

    Based on my SAT scores from several decades ago I couldn't even get in to UNC. But, I don't have a jump shot and I sure as hell can't dunk the rock.

    My SAT score was shit too but that was mainly because the night before i was tripping my balls off on LSD. That same night, the house next door burned down in a fire. For the first few seconds, I thought I was hallucinating it. :jj:

    Looks like D1 athletes are gonna get paid too....

    "The National Relations Board in Chicago has ruled that football players at Northwestern University are employees and can unionize. The athletes have said they are seeking better medical coverage, concussion testing, four-year scholarships, and the possibility of being paid."

    Funny that Bosch thinks okay for him to use the n word, cause he's down with the struggle. He won't live near it but he supports it from afar.

    Hypocrite.
