I actually prefer the student athlete part, not just the athlete part.appgrouch wrote: ↑Tue Apr 06, 2021 9:48 amDo you really want all the classes/majors that App Athletes have taken to be audited? Every time an adviser pointed them to an easy class/major? Every class that had a coach teaching it and was a "rocks for jocks" class? And once again it was a major that many students, non athletes included, took.BallantyneApp wrote: ↑Tue Apr 06, 2021 8:24 amAlso UNC gets its comeuppance for defrauding hundreds of athletes from a real education in order to make millions, but Hubert D comes off clean while the architects of the scheme, Dean Smith and Roy Williams and various administrators have their reputation deservedly tarnished.appstate24 wrote: ↑Mon Apr 05, 2021 7:19 pmWhile he does seem like a nice guy, I got a better idea. The tar holes tank and it sets the program back at least a decade. Nice guy Hubert gets paid handsomely along the way. It’s a win-win.
Screw the heels,
If only we lived in a just world.
Theres a big difference between "easy" majors and the largest instance of academic fraud perpetuated by UNC.
Capital letters do NOT express enough my agreement with Ballantyne.
Cheating over decades and being arrogant makes me want to puke.
Temple University and John Chaney just set up easy majors but still made it mandatory that players attend ALL classes or be excluded from practice or games.... all without fraud and players actually got educated
