I will be honest here – I am so inured to the culture of corruption, and Monty Python’s Black Knight caliber of willful and idiotic denial…I didn’t think anything UNC scandal related could shock me anymore. Then I read this, and you should as well: Prepare to be disgusted. Horrific doesn’t even begin to describe [...]
I ran across this work from “Roll Bama Roll” and thought the community would enjoy it. (For more general college basketball discussion from this weekend I recommend that you click here.)
