    Football players majoring in AFRI and AFAm studies at UNC from 2003-2010 never exceeded 13%:

    http://coachingthemind.blogspot.com/2014/07/steering-narrative-part-2-mary.html?spref=twAt NCSU, 33% of football players major in Exercise Science. This is the very definition of "major clustering" as stated from the NCAA

    but look at which team did qualify for major clustering in AFAM...

    Among the men’s basketball teams during Willingham’s seven years working with athletes, the 2003-2004 and 2004-2005 teams were the only ones to have more than two players majoring in AFRI or AFAM, and the 2004-2005 team was the only one to meet the 25% threshold for major clustering

    Interesting read. For all the talk about players being guided into certain majors, the numbers do not seem to bear that out.

  • 903 Born To Be Hateddd Jul 25, 2014

    Yeah, nothing to see here... I mean, there's NO WAY the NCAA will come back to check things out with such places like http://coachingthemind.blogspot.com/ out there providing all this great data...

  • HeelFanF0rLife Jul 25, 2014

    It seems to me that the blog is doing a pretty good job clarifying some stories, refuting others. Time will tell.

  • 903 Born To Be Hateddd Jul 25, 2014

    not clarifying a think... bottom line, the players that played (as mccants stated, the ones that played, not the benchwarmers) were the ones that were given special treatment to fraudulently keep them eligible... no one cares if all the walk-ons were steered to academic fraud, they didn't matter.

  • HeelFanF0rLife Jul 25, 2014

    I'm going to let the NCAA rule on those types of things, not an over obsessed and consumed Duke fan such as yourself. Especially one who is relying on Rashad McCants as an authoritative voice on the matter.

    I'll take McCants' word on it over anyone elses... After all he's the only one with the stones to show his transcript...

  • HeelFanF0rLife Jul 25, 2014
    Towel Boy

    Good for you, then. Hitch your wagon to that horse.

    Transcripts would not show anything that isn't already known. Players took easy classes. It happens on many campuses.

    I don't think the NCAA is going to investigate the difficulty of classes that players took.

    they'll follow up on the comments McCants made... and that includes an awful lot of cheating, not just "easy classes"...

  • HeelFanF0rLife Jul 25, 2014

    Again, I'll wait for the NCAA to rule on what was going on and leave you to rely on Rashad McCants.

    I think I will need a link to me ever saying the NCAA would not come back to Chapel Hill.

    Thanks in advance.

  • HeelFanF0rLife Jul 25, 2014
    Towel Boy

    I see you could not provide a link to me saying they would not be back. I figured as much.

    As to why the NCAA is back in Chapel Hill, I think their statement speaks for itself.

    After determining that additional people with information and others who were previously uncooperative might be willing to speak with the enforcement staff, the NCAA has reopened its investigation.

    What's a "cluser?"

  • Two0uttaThreeeUNC Jul 27, 2014
    Towel Boy

    It's when one "rival" loses two out of every three games played against another supposed "rival".

    It's pretty rare...this "Two Out of Every Three" thing..... not surprised you haven't heard of it kTard.

    But you might want to get used to it....cuz it ain't going away. (guhchortle) In fact...it's only getting worse! Ha ha ha Ha ha ha HA!

    You said in one post you looked "cluser" up in the dictionary, then admitted you didn't in your very next post.

    Dook...of course now they don't even publish the majors so they can hide those Sociology majors...need I say more...
    http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/sports/college/2003-11-18-atheletes-majors_x.htm
    ...however from another article about Duke Sociology...
    "The University does not deny that some athletes who may try to take the easier courses within the Sociology degree program, but some students who are not athletes do the same thing in any degree area."
    So how is that "meaningful degree" the NCAA is striving for working out for you Duke?

    Priceless! He is quoting the comment from a English Language Learning Exchange. Per the site, it is a question and answer site for speakers of others languages learning English. Apparently, people ask question and anyone can answer.

    And that is his definitive source.

    That is just EXCELLENT.
