Yeah this whole thing has to have been orchestrated by UNC. No way any sane human being would come out and get back in the spotlight at this point in the game when they had already gotten off.

Can they pull her "plea" deal now that she has reneged on the "cooperation" with the SBI.

Why stop with the ACC? Why not pull out of the NCAA?

If this bill passes (this bill will never pass), maybe it will make the NCGA consider how their bills will be viewed by the ACC before passing. Because if they passed a bill that caused State or UNC to leave the ACC, they would be voted out of office so fast...

Fuck roy. He gets a pass for saying shit like this because of his "friggin dadgum it" schtick. But how hard is it to just say "knowing the facts of the case, I completely disagree with marylands presidents view". Like...I dunno, calling him a double idiot 1) is the dumbest insult imaginable and 2) is just kinda asshole-y when it wouldn't super easy to take the high road give a reasoned response to calls for the death penalty.

Roy knew. Fuck him.

well I guess Roy is a double idiot too, right?

I mean he doesnt mind having an opinion on this dadgum hill o beans of a mess they got over there... and he didnt know a dadgum thing about it either. UMD prez seems just as qualified to make a statement I would think.

I am kinda jealous of UMD despite loathing them... they got out of this conference when they could and who could blame them? There will never be a level playing field and it is all just set up to fuel the UNC machine, providing all their baby blue fans with constant pats on the back. They get to feel good about whatever athletic success they achieve despite not caring one bit about how it is achieved. You would think that graduating players that cant read would be enough for them to hit the brakes. But UNC fans base their identities on whatever their basketball team puts on the court.

I think that's what annoys me the most about UNC fans. They sincerely consider the athletics department's winning ways to be their personal triumphs. Sad that they have to rely on cheaters to give themselves a feeling of self worth.

Well if you follow a college sports team because you simply cheer for them instead of having an actual academic connection to the school like going there or paying for your kid to go there, chances are you could not care less about the academic side of things.

(Ironically, 99% of Duke fans in a nutshell.)

That "conflict of interest because it's headed by the SEC commissioner will likely get dismissed as frivolous. It's an incredibly weak claim.

^ that is good news!

"Sankey responded that Crowder's interview should occur in coming weeks within the new schedule, adding: "There will be no further delays, and the case will be heard on this schedule.""

""These positions intensify our concerns that the NCAA does not feel bound by its bylaws and that this process is merely a show designed to reach a predetermined result. Nevertheless, Ms. Crowder looks forward to correcting the record by giving an interview in the next few weeks.""

No. More non-athletes than athletes took these classes. "


I knew this would be pointed out because they purposely kept the percentage right below 50% (~48%).

Meant to add this to the above post I made:

They forget this part...

Quote :
"Wainstein’s report found. More than 3,100 students took at least one, and roughly half of them were athletes, who make up 4 percent of the student body. Athletes also accounted for more than half of the students who took significant numbers of bogus classes."


Student body collectively has 4% athletes, so even if 30% of the AFAM students were athletes it would still be largely disproportionate.

Say an AFAM course had 60 students, less than 3 students should have been athletes based off the 4% figure. However it is more like 30 students would have been athletes.

Who cares how many non-athletes took a course with the same course name and number? It was independent studies, right? Non-athletes could get the actual independent study course, athletes could get the bogus tutor writes the one paper that's due at the end of the semester version of the course.

But hold the phone, 51% of the people enrolled in AFAM 495 (or whatever) were non-students so we're good here, right?

That would set a hell of a precedent. Go ahead and cheat to keep athletes academically eligible so long as you let some non-athletes take phony courses too. As long as you maintain a numeric minority all academic cheating is on the table.

I wish they'd just come out and say "UNC makes us lots of money. Deal with it." instead of these weak apologetics.

This is soooo basic guys. Look. At. Percentages. percentage of athletes vs non athletes at school is way out of line with the percentages of these classes. It's obvious. Fucking idiots. What a weak attempt at deflection.

To be fair, I think the better percentage to assess is the percentage of the amount of students that are African Americans to the percentage of students that are athletes. Let's face it, if you're not black, you likely have little to no interest in AFAM.

Percentage might still be disproportionate, or maybe it'll show that if it wasn't for black athletes, there would be no African American population at UNC. I don't know. But that'll be a more fair assessment.
