LRM asks: Uh…considering the timing of this (if true), then what on earth changed? To think, if this had been done last summer, the whole thing would’ve largely been forgotton (especially with the issues at Ohio State, Auburn and now Oregon). But now there will undoubtedly be penalties of some sort, and I have to think firing the Chief right now must be part of some attempt by the Flagship for the NCAA to accept lesser, self-imposed penalties.
SFN asks: The timing of this alongside of the scrambling of Butch’s ‘secret phone’ seems very ‘coincidental’. I can’t help but wonder aloud if the information from his 216 phone was very damning in the end? We will see. For more conversation, you can click to this thread in our message forum.
GAWolf asks: Given that the timing is so curious (read: could not be worse for the Heels), could it be that Butch misled the powers that be in Chapel Hill regarding his personal phone “last fall” when Greg Barnes alleges the phone records were reviewed (snicker) by UNC. One can’t help but think that it would be an easy pitch unless someone started putting random phone numbers with names. It’s interesting that on the eve of the release and after Butch allegedly put time into “redacting” these records the school pulls the cord on Butch before the phone records are released.
