    Nothing to see here. Thorp would have had a hard time gaining the respect of his new "peers" at Carolina, so it's no surprise that he would go to another institution.

    My bad 'Pedo...I can't tell you neoCONS apart. The "Withers came up with Flagship" comment was from Pack-A-Lips. You two make such a nice couple. Get a room.

    Link to where I ever claimed Withers invented the word flagship. I'll wait. I've got all afternoon.

    Thanks liberTARD. Good lord what a terrible ambassador for kerlina. Did you even attend there?

    You sure like to run your pie-hole as though you are a "knowledgable one"....yet....LOLOL...you still think Everett Withers coincd the term "Flagship".

    OMG still laughing MAO over that one.

    Come back when you have one shred of credibility, 'Pedo. What you're selling ain't working.

    The way I see it is money talks. Thorp was demoted after he "thorpedoed" the entire school. No way anybody would give up being chancellor in the prime of their career just to teach. So seeing as how he was going to take a pay cut and still wanted to afford Tammy Hansbrough's services, he had to look elsewhere. Washington was a natural choice as they offered the $$$$$. Now he'll have lots of $1's to give Tammy. ROFL!!!!!

    Maybe Kane can do a little digging on that one, too.

    Most executives don't get demoted within an organization, they leave. That's par for the course in the private sector and I wouldn't expect anything different with Thorpe.

    don't the abc fans need to start working UNC baseball into the scandle before we win a national baseball title?

    Goood luck to ya!

    Maybe the Wusspack Club's lapdog Dan Kane can find out for you.

    Most people who are job-hunting don't announce it to the world.

    He'll make a lot more money in the private sector. Hard to blame him.

    Yeah he does. The only thing that's funny is he expressed about....oh...5 months ago that he had no desire to leave kerlina. My how quickly things change.

    I don't blame him at all for leaving. He needs a fresh new start.

    No money bets from me, There have already been plenty of winks and nods in the good ole boy system and rams club that runs UNC to deal with this. Question I have is will they have enough influence to deal with the Southern Association of Colleges judgement and sentence on the entire fiasco and the lack of the school properly addressing it.

    Such a hateful comment, liberTARD. We all know you're a proud walmart representative of the f(l)agship. Alas I'll let the SBI examine this one. They're still looking you guys over after all.

    Hopefully it will consume the rest of your year trying to find out. The Flagship can't wait to review your findings.

    What kind of parachute is he getting? Everyone else has gotten retirement. Is his under the table? He can run but he can not hide.

    Interesting comment on the news this morning. Apparently his wife told him that he could not take a job at a school that would cause them to root against UNC.

    Thorp knows they are getting ready to have to deal with some rough stuff, not only dose he not want to be Chancellor any more, he no longer wants to teach there. He will not even be in town anymore when the tough actions of the Southern Association of Colleges are being dealt with.

    Apparently, the good people are starting to jump ship, having had enough of the lying and cheating that has taken a strangle-hold on UNCCheats. Can't really blame him.

    Let the deflections begin.
