    Nope. I already did my eight years of "sorry" under George W. Bush.

    It's your turn now, I reckon. LOL!

    Sadly, we have a country full of voters that largely vote for what is best for their pocketbooks, but not what is best for the country.

    You're going to know it, too. You said "sorry". Sadly, you are going to BE sorry. We all will. Obama is now a lame duck president. He won't hold back now. And we are ALL going to pay for it. I haven't felt this scared for our country since Jimmy Carter was president.

    Btw, this is my last comment about Obama. I don't like it when others get too political on sports blogs, so I need to stop it, too.

    Wow, even our governor is weighing in on the scandal: "Sad to say, at Carolina, our great basketball program, they took Swahili on a night study course where they didn't have to do any work and got B-pluses."

    But getting back on topic, the faculty is getting involved.

    That should scare every Carolina fan that is hoping against hope that the truth will remain covered up.

    Why don't you take your theories, start a petition at the White House and get Obama to investigate:

    https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/All you need is 25,000 signatures to get him to formally respond. Since he responds to all sorts of garbage he has no business responding to, you have a shot.

    Show me something illegal. Show me a broken rule. Show me where even the SPIRIT of the rules were broken. This guy loves NC State and is supporting them in perfectly legal ways. This is no more a story than Butch Davis continuing to attend football games after being terminated with full pay.

    It appears that Carolina made a big mistake in their attempts at a cover-up. They tried to throw the faculty under the bus.

    Speaking from experience, when the faculty has had enough, it's going to be hard times for Carolina athletics. It appears athletics has hit the academics hornets nest with a tennis racket.

    CJ sounds like an elementary student. Most state kollege athletes do. for that matter their grads are not a whole lot better...LOL! Never forget the famous "amphibious" remark! LMFAO! They have had some true genuses in that asketball program in the past...LOL!

    And TBK must have at least 40 posts today. Trying to move everyone away from his dishonesty with the bet with thrill he cheated on!

    This linked article tells us what we already know about UNC. They gamed the system and continue to do so while shrugging off the assertion that they or their revenue generating sports programs were involved in cheating. This is easy to do when you can lay the blame for academic fraud on the teaching institution and treat it as a system problem thereby absolving the football and basketball teams. That is a pretty good con game they have going. I wonder how many Division I programs will try to mimic that?

    John Infante @ John_Infante

    I explain why I came around and now think the NCAA has to investigate UNC's academics. And why it has to be fast: http://www.athleticscholarships.net/2013/01/28/ncaa-reason-to-investigate-unc.htmThis is an interesting read on why the NCAA does have enough reason to investigate at Carolina. It has to do with the unauthorized grade changes, and the NCAA has investigated similar activities at other school. So the precedent is there if the NCAA has any desire for consistency (which I already know is a reach even as I was typing that...)
