    The problem here is that even if the outside "experts" reported the "truth" as they saw it, and that they are indeed the best qualified to address the issue, it still "looks bad", their findings are "tainted", and "questionable" because they were chosen, hired, and paid by UNC! A piece of information that would be interesting... what were those "experts" charged with doing? I'd love to see the emails/letters, etc. exchanged between UNC and the "experts". UNC: "I'm hiring you, I will pay you a "nice sum of money" to do something for me." Experts: "OK - that sounds good... what is it you want me to do?" What was UNC's answer to that question?

    Please don't let logical thoughts enter your head before responding to that mentally "questionable" individual.

    In fact.. MOST pansies have a rather difficult time processing it (logic).

    So then tell us how do "outside experts" at trials come up with different conclusions for the prosecution and defense? Seems to happen quite often. I wonder....

    Nice post. Finally a UNC fan with some objectivity.

    Holding 3 degrees from UNC - ALL were earned and not one "paper-only" class on my transcript - I would indeed like for someone credible to find that it was all a "mistake"... that UNC never, ever admitted an athlete, or even a "regular student", who could not even read at the high school level. Was this group of 3 "credible"? From what I've seen they have the "credentials" and "qualifications" to be able to evaluate the information and make a judgment. However, their findings are "tainted" by having been hired by UNC. In a case like this, with the "experts" finding in favor of the University that hired them, such findings always has been and always will be "suspect". My background enables me to make an evaluation of Willingham's assertions, although I do not have the data and other information the hired experts had, therefore limiting my scrutiny. That said... the "test" to measure reading ability that is a huge factor in this entire discussion is not a "perfect" test of reading ability... it is clearly not the best test for reading ability... but it does tell us something about the individual's tested... along with LOTS of other information we have about athletes who were admitted to UNC. Let's set aside the focus on reading ability, and ask a very simple question - were/are athletes admitted to UNC who should not have been admitted due to significant/severe deficiencies in academic ability... the ability to do college level academic work at a university such as UNC? There is certainly ample evidence that point to a resounding "YES" as the answer! Also... some seem to have interpreting all of this to mean that ALL UNC athletes are deficient in reading and academic ability. That is NOT the case! Most UNC athletes are quite capable in the classroom... it is only a relative few who are lacking. But... those few are a few too many and they should never have been admitted. McAdoo (the football McAdoo) is a prime example!

    B-I-N-G-O

    they would GLADLY perform the services REQUESTED and come out with the CORRECT answer, in order to secure their proceeds, as well as to PROVE to other such institutions.... hey, if you need an "outside independent study" done.... we've GOT YOUR BACK... wink;)wink;)

    what it is....

    is FURTHER embarrassment for a pansy filled institution in DIRE NEED of NO FURTHER EMBARRASSMENT.

    isn't being a NATIONAL LAUGHINGSTOCK for FIVE LONG YEARS enough?!?!?!?!?!?!

    Do you honestly believe these experts would put at risk their reputations and standing among their peers by doing anything less than their best unbiased work because of who was paying them? Would you? For a mere $5,000? Really? Their work faces the ultimate peer review, with three separate analyses of the same data under scrutiny in a highly visible environment.

    Have you no experience in the academic and research worlds? Do you believe it about the money for everyone, or just when it favors UNC? Do you general trust people and expect the best from them; or are you more among those my father meant when he cautioned to "Trust not those who trust not", or at least "Be slow to trust…"

    Do you honestly believe there is one scintilla of a chance that a group of "outside experts" picked by unc's PR firm and paid by unc is going to say "yep, Willingham and Kane were correct".

    If so you are the new definition of gullible.

    The independent studies don't say that nothing was done incorrectly. They say that Mary is a lying, incompetent twit.

    When UNCheat invites the NCAA a back and not another independent researcher and the NCAA and congress clear them of all charges or that nothing was done incorrectly, I will believe nothing that comes out of that cess pool.

    What do think of a "news" or media source that goes back years and rewrites their stories? Orwellian?
    Are they deflecting? Their stories fraudulent? What do you call them? Dan Kane and the N&O? Certainly not journalists.

    UNC had enough real problems. Some institutional, some failings of individuals, and some we share with with most D1 universities. Bad enough, even if far less than what many of you what many of you are anxious to believe

    Many times what you might see as denial or deflection are where we are almost certain that the claims against are invalid or exaggerated. Nearly every allegation from MW are of that type.

    TodAys UNC response on her literacy "research" was handled well. She complains that she was not consulted. She was not even mentioned by name. This is not about her.

    Grasp right ear firmly with right hand.
    Grasp left ear firmly with left hand.
    Pull evenly with both hands until a pop is heard.
    Head will then be dislodged.

    The media has the "fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me" mindset.

    I am guessing since UNCheat has a proven propensity to deflect, lie and cheat over the last 4 years while not being forthcoming with information folks will hold judgement for awhile.
