    Of the 183 students, 45 (about 24 percent) had UNC GPAs under 2.0, thus putting them at risk of academic disqualification. Ninety-four of the 183 students, over half, had GPAs under 2.3. Keep in mind that the bogus system of eligibility—UNC’s paper class system—was assisting these players to stay on the court/field.”

    “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.”

    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? :

    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!

    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.

    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!
