    I guess Bilas will be the next one on the hit list for the insane ABC'er crowd:

    Another interesting point Bilas was fairly persistent on is the fact there was no reason for anyone to be suspicious in 2005 regarding the nature of the AFAM classes or even a player turning their grades around from one semester to the next. It is also pointed out that McCants was eligible for the 2005 season and the four straight As in the spring of 2005 would not have impacted is eligibility one way or the other since he was heading to the NBA. Williams said he was not notified of McCants being named to the dean's list and only knew about McCants' grades and classes after the fact. He also says such a turnaround wouldn't necessarily be that unusual since a player could have trouble in one semester then get their act together for the next.

    For what it's worth, Bilas says he found Williams credible and considers him to be a man of integrity. He has also known Williams for many years, likely dating back to Bilas' days at Duke which coincided with Williams time as an assistant coach at UNC.
