    http://www.cnn.com/2014/04/08/us/unc-academic-fraud-investigation/index.html?sr=sharebar_twitter(CNN) -- A U.S. congressman is questioning whether the NCAA failed to hold the University of North Carolina accountable during a 2012 academic fraud investigation and is demanding answers from NCAA brass.
    If he doesn't get them, he'll call for congressional hearings and subpoena NCAA President Mark Emmert, Rep. Tony Cardenas told CNN.
    The California Democrat is referring to a probe in which the National Collegiate Athletic Association investigated UNC's system of "paper classes" -- independent studies requiring little work and no attendance. Athletes were able to get easy "A"s without actually going to class.

    "I think it's important to know if they are looking the other way," Cardenas said. "I think it's very suspicious."

    "Kids who are walking out of these schools cannot read. They are getting degrees that are worthless," said Tom McMillen, a former congressman and basketball player who now serves as secretary for the University System of Maryland Board of Regents, speaking on the issue of NCAA reform last week at the nonprofit Aspen Institute. "I think the chnk in the armor of the NCAA is that they say you're going to get an education."
    In a Monday phone interview with CNN, McMillen stated his opinion succinctly: "If these kids aren't getting an education, the whole thing's a sham."
    Emmett Gill, a former NCAA adviser and current head of the Student-Athletes Human Rights Project, raised the same point in a letter to Emmert asking for a renewed investigation at UNC.

    Gill said he believes the NCAA and UNC are ignoring the alleged academic fraud to protect the amateur model. If the NCAA were to admit that athletes are not getting an education, it would be devastating to the organization, Gill said.

    Mo hopes he doesn't investigate why the NCAA left our banners up when we got caught using paid players twice. Mo especially hopes it is not the same Democratic congressman who thought Guam could tip over.

    Oh sure, I imagine their vast power and influence reaches all the way into the highest echelons of the federal government (snicker). Lil' Swoffy and a certain former governor (who has already shown he is either incapable of competently conducting an investigation and drawing reasonable conclusions, or he has no credibility whatsoever - likely both) will sit down, shut up, and do as they are told.
