    Ex-Professor Criticizes N.C. State
    BY BARRY JACOBS, SPECIAL TO THE NEW YORK TIMES
    A controversy started by the jacket cover of a forthcoming book charging wrongdoing within the North Carolina State basketball program intensified yesterday when a retired professor at the school said that grades had been changed to maintain the eligibility of Chris Washburn, one of the school's former star players. The professor also said he had informed Bruce R. Poulton, chancellor of the university, of the grade changes, and was told "not to worry about it. " Richard A. Lauffer, recently retired after seven years as chairman of the North...

    "NC State has been punished harshly thru the years by the NCAA for some very minor things."

    Once again, that is incorrect. NC State has been punished for some major things - check the link provided earlier. Why continue to insist otherwise?

  • RDM Aug 9, 2011

    NC State has been punished harshly thru the years by the NCAA for some very minor things. But rules are rules. You break or bend them and you must pay the price. I pray that State is doing things by the book today. If not they will surely pay the price.

    I only want others to be punished for their sins equally....especially the perfect ones that would never do any wrong.

    NC State Violations:
    one case back in the 50s was attributed to Coach Case giving a committed recruit (already accepted a scholly offer to NCSU) somewhere in the range of $80 for a train ticket to come for a visit to campus. The kid was not allowed to attend NCSU after this was discovered. How does that compare to the current scandals we are reading about?

    Another 'major' violation occurred in 72 when one of our assistant coaches was seen playing a game of pick-up bb in Shelby's high school where David Thompson was a student. The violation resulted in our entire athletic department, all sports, being placed on a one year probation. The 73 men's bb team went 23-0 iirc.

    We were guilty of some serious stuff too. During the 50s, there was a big points shaving scandal that was found at many schools, including UNC-CHeaters and NCSU. We were rightfully punished for that, even though it was a rogue player, maybe several, and the leadership was unaware of the actions.

    The V era was the most recent and is almost a quarter of a century old. Mistakes were made, policies were not in place, it was not a flattering image of our athletic program at the time. We have paid dearly for it and have been very diligent since in monitoring the athletics program. Players sold shoes/tickets.

    Ryan Harrow and now Torian Graham....not sure State fans should be talking about transfers and commitments. Even after those that transferred from Carolina, they were still able to make it to the Elite 8.

    And they got limited PT cause two of them were Freshmen(Wear) and Drew was outplayed.

    That's the way it works...if you can perform, you play. No one is promised anything...they have to earn it.

    Wear brothers bailed before they had a chance to earn significant time, Drew got the time, but didn't perform.

  • VT1994Hokie Aug 9, 2011

    Hicks sounds like he has his priorities in order. Roy is on his way again for building another talented team in 2013. Re-loading.

    Post by RDM:

    "NC State was punished severly for very minor violations."

    Actually, that's not true. The NCAA Legislative Services database (https://web1.ncaa.org/LSDBi/exec/miSearch) indicates that NC State has committed major violations on 5 separate occasions. In 1989, their infractions were deemed to have constituted "lack of institutional control", the same designation that some NC State fans are now hoping UNC receives.

    "It's apples and oranges....not apples and apples."

    This statement is accurate. Should the NCAA hand down a ruling of LOIC in UNC's case, the comparison then becomes one of "apples to apples".

  • GhostofSmitty Aug 9, 2011

    Dang straight Skippy!!! The rich keep getting richer. You Haters keep thinkin ole Roy can't pull them in or coach. Guess that's why all these kids jump at the chance to play for him, because he can't coach. Isaiah Hicks is a smart kid that made a very wise decision.

    Whoot! Go Tar Heels! #Heelblood!

    Really? Do tell about the violations that have given UNC an advantage and how that differs from NCSU's violations.

    NC State was punished severly for very minor violations. The dues have way past been payed.

    As far as the 'shut their trap' comment. Carolina is in serious trouble for SERIOUS violations that HAVE given them an advantage over their sister institutions. Unlike what State was convicted of so many years ago.

    It's apples and oranges....not apples and apples.

    I would expect unc-ch fans to not open their traps (football) for many decades.

    Well, lets see....Wear brothers got cold feet, transferred after their freshman year.

    Drew's mom told him he could do better, so he left in the middle of the season.

    Seems like all three of them lacked the courage to stick with it...hopefully their new opportunity will work out better for them.

    When it comes to Basketball, State best shut their traps.. they are the only ones caught cheating in the ACC in the last 20 years. Oh and until you actually have a descent season.. you shouldn't be speaking in public. What a disgrace your whole athletic program is.

    Laughing at fans of other schools who hate on UNC when they wish they had the program UNC has had for such a long time.

    NC State and Duke trail UNC in basketball and football wins head to head all time and they have nothing else to talk about but "Cheater Hill"!

    If your too young to remember NC State has been caught on several occasions violating NCAA rules in the past and has been put on probation.

    So when you say "Cheater" you better include NC State and it looks like even Duke (all be it a little to do about nothing in my opinion) is getting involved with some academic issues.

    Check your schools cheating past before you point fingers at others.

    He said I have potential and that the sky is the limit for me. He told me he didn’t know what position I was going to play because I could grow.

    Don't feel special that's what he tells every recruit.
    Includung the Wear Bros and LD2- how did that work for them?

    "No the funny thing is that your fellow Tar Holes are the ones that ALWAYS point out how every other fan comments on the Holes stories but are first to comment on others and criticize and make their silly insulting remarks..always putting that arrogant nose in the air no matter what disasters you are facing in your own backyard. Whether it be NCSU or Slippery Rock. Just my observation." Quote from a Pack fan from another story that I commented on. Judging by some of the comments here, I wasn't far off in my assessment of their comments. Hypocritical much?
