    It's laziness and irresponsibility on the part of both the players and the school administration.

    Get that in order and everything will fall into place. Not that it will be an overnight thing without some shock to the current culture, but nothing drawn out, doesn't need to be.
    Sports=money.

    UNC is a great university. One of the nation's top public institutions. This is a ginormous black eye.

    Do you have a link to substantiate this?

    Sadly this will tarnish a lot of great programs. But they ****ed themselves on this. I feel for the legitimate athletes who busted their asses.

    The funny part of this particular scandal is that the football team appears to have been involved. North Carolina football sucks and pretty much always has. If you're going to cheat at least get some hardware out of it before you get caught, sheesh.

    If this doesn't get a death penalty, nothing else will. Unbelievable.

    From the article...

    LOL !!

    UNC isn't the only school doing this by a long shot.

    Vince Young ( University of Texas ) scored a 6 on the Wonderlick Aptitude test.
