    Willingham noticed that some highly recruited revenue-sport athletes lacked basic literacy skills. She won’t discuss individuals by name but will say that beginning in 2003, she taught members of the football and basketball team to sound out multisyllable words and piece together simple sentences. Other athletes who could read somewhat better wanted her help so they could more easily follow sports news online. Willingham says that of the undergraduate sports stars who accepted tutoring—not all did—a number made substantial progress. But the notion that athletes with elementary school skills “would be able to write papers for college classes,” she says, “just made no sense.”

    A female varsity basketball player showed her a class paper that “was obviously a cut-and-paste job she’d copied from somewhere,” Willingham says. A colleague advised Willingham to allow the young woman to submit the paper for credit, and it received a B. “I came home and told Chuck, but I didn’t stop it,” she says.

    Willingham has been discredited over and over. Lol! This is priceless and typical of the disgruntled State college fan base! Keep up the good work!

    Football players whispered to her about a computer hard drive maintained by the team that contained a bank of term papers. Athletes slightly altered and submitted the inventoried papers for course credit. “There’s no way the professors could not have noticed the same papers coming in from athletes,” she says.

    LOL....Dr. pwn apparently doesn't get out of the basement very often. Care to read the TRUTH penned by the current athletic academic adviser at UNC? :

    http://coachingthemind.blogspot.com/2014/02/truth-and-literacy-at-unc.html

    Care to hear the real TRUTH, about inaccurate stats used and rogue "whistle blowing" that is now shown to be extremely inaccurate??

    Or is this just Dan Kane in disguise??

    This just in, both Princeton Review and Kiplingers just named UNC the #1 public university in the nation AGAIN! And again, ncsu not mentioned in either.

    Have fun with that, dr. wolfpup!

    “We put athletes in the paper classes specifically because they didn’t meet,” Willingham says. “Any kind of paper got an A or a B grade. It wasn’t clear whether anyone was even reading the papers.”
