    Thanks for pointing out that Mario is an alum while Quinn got told to pound sand. Further proves my point.

    Reported for language.

    They also told Robert Quinn to pound sand. Then he goes and gets selected to the all-star team. SMH.

    Wait a minute, are you saying that a successful program needs a coach who makes good decisions off the court?!? In other words, they need to be a leader and the CEO of a program! Got Roy!

    ...and people say it's the athletes that are dumb at UNC...

    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/ncaab-the-dagger/chris-paul-likely-tar-heel-had-matt-doherty-234312826--ncaab.htmlAs if a 10-22 ACC record during his final two seasons weren't reason enough for North Carolina fans to regret the Matt Doherty era, Chris Paul's former high school coach offered another piece of evidence.

    David Laton said in a Q&A with USA Today that the seven-time NBA all-star point guard likely would have signed with North Carolina instead of Wake Forest had Doherty not told him he'd need to walk on for at least his first year.

    "He actually grew up a North Carolina fan," said Laton, who coached Paul at West Forsyth High in Winston Salem, N.C. "That was his favorite basketball team growing up, but Matt Doherty was there at the time. Doherty told us, and I'm not saying it wasn't true, but he told us that they didn't have any more scholarships. When we visited the school he was trying to get Chris to pay his own way for a year. I knew that wasn't gonna happen."
