    This explains State's failure in basketball versus UNC...

    Dean Smith: Son, I want you to play for the Heels. You can be the next MJ and lead us to another title.

    Top Recruit: I don't know sir, I really think Les Robinson is really building something special over at State.

    Dean Smith: Okay kid, I can't compete with that, tell you what, you come to UNC rather than State and I guarantee a free degree in AFAM with no work involved.

    Top Recruit: Well, that's more like it. I would much rather play for State and that great program but the academics are so rigorous, I guess I can play for UNC instead.

    Dean Smith to Baddour: Dick, I think we've stumbled upon the advantage we need to finally put us over the top with State. Every blue chipper dreams of playing for the Pack but this AFAM scam will keep them coming to us.

    Baddour: Hot dog! You're right. I mean sure we've won more national titles and ACC titles, and the head to head isn't even close, but we really need this AFAM deal so we can stay on top of State.

    Duke and State fans will both be inclined to read more of his articles if they are bashing UNC. Never did I imply that State had more fans then UNC. You have no evidence of anything, you have dirty Kane, that is all. How do you get State has more fans out of me saying he will gain a large portion of the States fan base? Do you not understand large portion is not the same as all or even half of the States fan base.

  • 4tarheels Jan 2, 2013

    Martin strikes back. Read his letter to the N&O, good stuff. Here is a quote from Martin that sounds eerily similar to what I've been saying this afternoon...

    "We were tasked to find evidence, not compile a list of imagined grievances."

    Bottom line is that Martin investigated what he could and if the NCAA chooses to come back, they will do the same. Martin uncovered an academic scandal at UNC that deserved to be exposed. Hopefully, these findings will lead to fixes in the AFAM department and prevention of similar activities in other academic departments. That would be a good thing. However, ABC nation (including the N&O) is not interested in fixes to these academic issues. Instead, Dan Kane and ABC nation has only one goal, remove national championship banners. That's why he spent 2012 fishing every angle he could for their removal, going from academics to Tami Hansbrough, back to academics, and so on. Jim Martin investigated what he was asked to investigate and now his good name is being dragged through the mud by this lunatic fringe.

    Nope. With anyone else I would say possibly, but not with Kane. All he sees is the name UNC and his desire to bring them down. Fortunately he is nothing to be concerned with. Dirty Dan loves to sensationalize stories like UNC's. Look up his past stories over the years he has a history of sensationalizing stories to get a larger reader base. This is a great story to continue to perpetuate, because he will gain the readership of a large portion of the states fan base.

    LOL Kane will continue to write articles that don't matter in the new year that is my prediction for 2013. He is so obsessed with UNC being brought down, maybe because he is a State fan. I'll continue to ignore him as usual.

    The evidence suggests that these courses were created to benefit both regular students AND student athletes. Did student athletes benefit from taking these easy courses? absolutely! Did regular students benefit from taking these easy courses, absolutely! How did the student athletes find out about these courses? Perhaps the same way the regular students found out. Why aren't we asking that question too? Unless there is EVIDENCE that someone in the athletic department was colluding with the AFAM department to keep student athletes eligible then there is no case for the NCAA. They may come in and sniff around again, but unless someone has EVIDENCE, not conjecture and assumptions (like Dan Kane and ABC nation), then they've got nothing. Remember, we still live in a free society where you are innocent until PROVEN quilty. The NCAA was able to PROVE that athletes accepted gifts and those athletes and UNC was rightfully punished. However, to assume UNC is guilty of keeping student athletes eligible just because the Martin Report does not satisfy everyone's questions, will not be enough for the NCAA to hand down further sanctions.

    no bowl game is much better than States bowl game....looks like those 15 extra practices really improved the Pack....oh wait they didn't even practice with the coaches that will coach them next year....and their new coach left Nashville and headed right back to see his old team play....maybe he should be worrying about players that switch commitments from State to Dook...

    To prove my point about ABC fans, what's worse than an athletic scandal! How about an academic scandal! The Martin report confirmed that! Oh wait, that's not enough.......ABC fans want the one thing they can't and never will get.........the basketball program! Why, because there's nothing to see! What these professors did sickens me to no end but the athletes are paying with a bowl ban! Much deserved IMO but that's the end! My hope is moving forward that UNC tells everyone that if you want to continue a witch hunt at our school ask the other schools to open their doors! I bet it would get awful quiet fast!

    Except that I am not alone in that. As holes are shot through that report, more and more will see it. But Carolina fans like you will continue to keep your heads in the sand.

    Martin deduced that it was not an athletic scandal... and he didn't even interview any athletes OR the professors involved.
