    Link to a player on the 2010 championship team going on camera and saying his coach cheated to allow him to stay eligible...because we now have that with the 2005 team, not the 2010 team...

    But...but...but... Willingham did not fill out her research forms in triplicate and have the transcripts notarized and stamped with an appropriate wax seal, so her findings were all "bogus."

    They need to take the 2010 banner at Dook down for using an ineligible paid player. Then we can talk.

    Wait til PJ starts singing. It will be interesting to see how markie, goeslower, 4autumn, smitty, cojo, and all the other homer supporters spin it then.

    The NCAA has to come back or give Memphis back it's runner-up season and a personal apology.

    Roy and the rest of the 2005 team are lying...

    http://www.newsobserver.com/2014/06/06/3917363/2005-unc-champs-relied-on-suspect.htmlRashad McCants was not the only UNC men’s basketball player from the 2005 national championship team who relied heavily on African studies classes that didn’t meet, according to whistleblower Mary Willingham, who tutored athletes during that period.

    Data she provided to The News & Observer show that five members of that team, including at least four key players, accounted for a combined 39 enrollments in classes that have been identified as confirmed or suspected lecture classes that never met. The data also show that the five athletes accounted for 13 enrollments that were accurately identified as independent studies.

    Those classes are also suspect because for much of the last decade, the department offered far more independent studies than it could properly supervise, previous reviews have shown.

    The revelation of the classes, plus McCants’ interview broadcast Friday by ESPN, are the strongest links between the basketball program and the academic scandal that has stretched into its third year.

    Enrollment in the 52 classes averages out to 10 no-show or independent studies per student during their time at UNC. That’s a quarter of the classes it typically takes to earn a bachelor’s degree.

    All of those enrollments resulted in nothing less than a B for the players. They accounted for 34 grades of A-minus or better.

    Willingham said she obtained the data from student enrollment records to which she had access as an adviser.
