No, problem. I understand the caution of many. Me, like many of the older Gamecock folk, have been waiting for revenge on those SOB's for nearly half a century now.

Consider that UNC's NOA contained 5 major violations. There is no wrist slap for such a thing.

UNC is now trying to say all this (after throwing many people under the bus for other things) really ties to WBB and Sylvia Hatchell. Trying to get her to take a bullet for the good of the school. That is laughable. Corruption that stinks to high heaven for many decades, all for WBB??? There is strong belief she is not going quietly into the good night.

The NCAA is using "impermissible benefits" angle to hammer WBB, football, and MBB so as not to be deciding what garbage their fake academics have been. SACS has called BS on UNC's claim of 70 reforms in place to fix their academics and due to their being lied to before, told UNC to prove the reforms are working or their probation will be extended and that means no accreditation.

Contrary to Roy Williams claiming that the lawyers said UNC basketball will not get hit and was not specifically named in the NOA, they all were. The PR team is playing semantics and UNC has redacted many things, but the NCAA and the COI knows the full story.

UNC is dead in the water.

Here is something worth reading, written by Mary Willingham (whistleblower) and Jay Smith (UNC History Professor)

I personally think they (UNC) are trying to push all the blame and brunt of the penalties on other programs and try to get a pass for their FB and MBB programs, and are hoping that the NCAA will wink their eye and accept what they propose as satisfactory. Due to this there are rampant rumors being started that Sylvia Hatchell's women's program is going to be the prime sacrificial lamb.

We just have to see if the NCAA is going to go against the grain and actually shock Tarheel Nation by doling out some real punishment in other areas from where UNC dictates, and hits the men's programs hard. If that happens, then all bets are off. But right now, Ole Roy thinks his program is in the clear.....
To be fair he isn't going to go around and say they are going to be on probation. The man is trying to save his recruiting in spite of what may prove to be the worst cheating scandal since SMU got the death penalty.

The good news is that we will all likely know the NCAA sanctions well before any 2017 recruits sign.......so the decisions they make will be done with full knowledge of the situation.

Love it, I think we as Gamecocks owe it to the world to start the death penalty talk in Charlotte during the first football game of the year, everyone bring a unc degree with paperless on it... I'm sure the young minds on campus and good ole Gamecocks that have waited decades for some revenge will think of something, let's paint Charlotte Garnet!,

While it is not basketball, UNC's Larry "The Hat" Fedora is getting raked over the coals by someone in the media finally asking tough questions about the NOA and the promise to recruits that nothing would happen to football (and basketball, per Roy).

The download (on NC State's Scout) will not work for me, but posters are saying he came off at about a 2 on a 10 scale.

The walls are crumbling ever so slowly.

You wouldn't by chance know what a biased source is would you?

The very fact that you are getting your information from a NC STATE website, should warn you to exercise some caution in predicting the grandiose decline of the UNC Mens basketball program. The football and womens basketball programs MAYBE, but unless you have some video, the testimony of a crazy Rashad Mccants, or Mary Willingham will not bring the basketball program down.

Default Re: 2017 - Jalek Felton

I am afraid you are falling for the UNC PR crap.

McCants so crazy he showed his transcripts to prove his point, when none of his teammates with over 100 fake classes never have.

Willingham so crazy, UNC settled out of court, the money, essentially is for back pay and her book sales are being donated elsewhere. At least she admitted being part of the problem and has worked hard to atone for it. I find such a person far easier to believe than those trying to sell a bunch of hooey. Don't you think it odd that UNC never had any academic casualties for decades? Now we know why. Diploma milled right along.

UNC has been wrong on everything for 5 years, and the vast majority of NCSU, Dan Kane, Jay Smith. Willingham, etc. have almost always been pretty accurate, but UNC has hidden behind an army of lawyers, had charges dropped by DAs on people, who, if they testified under oath would have done major damage, given Golden Parachutes for several people to assure they did not talk when they were either fired or suddenly left for other reasons, and on and on, but no one seems to ever remember anything until some proof is shoved under their noses.

This is like a serial killer after having the bodies of a dozen victims penned on him saying, "Yeah, I did all that, but I deny Jaywalking while doing it."

No one without a vested interest believes a word coming out of UNC now.
If you choose to do so, that's your business. I will go with the past track records and common sense. like Roy Williams saying one time they keep up with their players every day and know what they are doing and then at a later time, denies knowing anything because he has 13 players (15 with walk ons), even admits walking away whenever he sees someone from academia headed his way. Plausible deniability no longer floats with the NCAA, either. The NOA has identified MBB, WBB, FB of impermissible benefits which have been going on for 18 years. 5 major violations, including LOIC. SACS called BS on UNC after being lied to and telling them to prove your 70 reforms you claim you have are doing any good. Folts. any months ago, first said they had 200 reforms (I think we know where she pulled that number out of). Lies, deceit, misinformation, partial truths, lawyers, PR, etc....sickening.

I was a cop for about 1/3 of a century and was lied to at least once a day or night, almost everyone of them, sometimes, many times a night. You become a very good judge at such things and human nature, both to help solve a problem or crime or for your own personal safety. I have zero doubt on who is pushing to shine the light to reveal the truth and who is lying through their collective teeth to maintain the status quo.

Imagine something around 12 million on PR teams and God knows how much for lawyers and contract buyouts and sudden retirement packages, but surely those are all coincidence, too.

just one little interesting note, and Roy had more of his players in such classes than any other coach.

I thought that there were a documented 3,100 students that took those paper classes over nearly 20 yrs, and that half of them were pure students. That means that the other half were student-athletes, or some 1,550 or so student-athletes. That image above only lists 82 student-athletes. What happened to the others?
