More than 3,000 students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill received credit for fake classes over an 18-year period as part of a program that allowed many of them to remain eligible to play sports . . .

In the "old" days UNC would be hammered by the NCAA - possibly even gotten the death penalty for all of this blatent academic AND athletic cheating. Forfeiting national titles included.

Nowadays, probably just a slap on the wrist.

UNC people are split on this between the academic types embarassed by this and the athletic supporter types who can't ever seem to see the difference in right and wrong - only in winning.

VERY SAD STORY AND SITUATION UP THERE IN IN OF THE NATIONS MOST OUTSTANDING ACADEMIC INSTITUTIONS

Oh, and DON'T tell me the the Coaches did not know or even control keeping their players on the fields and courts! That is what it WAS ALL ABOUT IN THE FIRST PLACE!!
