    http://www.wdrb.com/story/25742443/bozich-imagine-if-rashad-mccants-had-played-for-u-of-l-uk-or-iu

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Imagine if Rashad McCants had been one of John Calipari's former players.

    No need to give you a name. Just pick anybody who played for Cal, any player whose reputation for academic heavy lifting wasn't the greatest at Kentucky, Memphis or Massachusetts. You would have heard non-stop clucking from here to the Smith Center.

    Or what if McCants had played at the University of Louisville?

    A modern-day version of the late Tom Brookshier would have delivered a three-day rant on the team's collective IQ and graduation rate. Most of America, led by the folks who insisted U of L lacked the academic chops to join the Atlantic Coast Conference, would have nodded.

    Don't forget Indiana. Kelvin Sampson recruited a string of chowder-heads during his two-season reign in Bloomington. McCants would have fit in with those misfits – and the wise guys would have chirped to add another year to the Hoosiers' NCAA probation.

    But Rashad McCants played at The University of North Carolina, the program with the reputation for pumping out doctors, lawyers and conference commissioners.

    McCants won a national championship in St. Louis in 2005, during a Final Four that also included U of L.

    North Carolina is a program that has demanded genuine genuflecting in college basketball. It's the home of Dean Smith, Michael Jordan and Tyler Hansbrough. It's recommended that you bring a GPA of 3.7 as well as an ACT of 28 or better for admission.

    Tales of bogus classes, inflated grades and charades surrounding classroom attendance, especially for courses in UNC's Afro-American studies department have been outlined in multiple news reports.

    The NCAA has shown minimal interest in discovering what really went on in Chapel Hill. The Raleigh News and Observer has done most of the heavy lifting.

    Indeed other schools have been caught with their hand in the cookie jar before but carolina is the first to get caught with their head STUCK in the cookie jar.

    5 loooooong years and counting.

    And there is still no hope for extraction in sight.

    Coach K is right about the double standard, he is the only coach to have used two paid players and keep his wins.

    Go Duke!

    It's always someone or somebody else, never accepting the blame. Like the man said you have been caught with your head in the cookie jar. No one an I mean no one is going to let up until unc is punished to the MAX.

    Sorry sport. One year football bowl ban has already "came and went" as you would say LOL!

    As long as Governor Martin and "The Swoff" are cool with it....it's all good!

    As long as Willingham, McCants, and whoever comes forward next, and the next one after him, etc... keep talking, this will never go away....and I will keep enjoying every second of watching you and the other trolls squirm....

    this will never go away....

    We totally understand.

    The hurt of being told by a major University that "you're not up to snuff" when you apply....stays with one for a looooooooong time. Anger, envy, jealousy are all very common responses, as we see here hourly. (LOL)

    (I've personally never experienced it, having been accepted to The Flagship on my first attempt. Which is a good thing, since I didn't have a "Plan B" lololol -- no Faye State or state college for me! LOLOL)
