    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.
