Point #1: 93 parking tickets with 5 different cars. Here is what Little had to say:
“I know I got a lot – come on,” Little said. “I know that was really irresponsible, but I know everybody receives parking tickets. I’ve paid ‘em. I paid them – they came from out of my pocket.”
“I drove my mom’s car, sister’s car, dad’s car, my car, and I had two cars [that] I ended up switching. That’s where the five cars came from.
One of the hot topics in college sports lately is paying players, why would this be necessary if a football player has money in his pocket for 93 parking tickets, has a car and can trade cars?
Point #2: 9 different license plates. I hope you are sitting down when you read this, but someone involved with the UNC football scandal claims to not know anything. Here is Greg Little’s explanation for the 9 license plates:
I don’t know what that’s from
But the nine license plates – that’s got me baffled, too
In case you have forgotten, 2 of those 9 license plates were traced back to a former Durham dealership where the owner is now serving a federal sentence for money laundering.
So if Greg Little has no idea how 9 different license plates ended up on his family’s 5 cars, does that mean there is a license plate bandit lurking around the Little family home switching their license plates just for the heck of it? Where else in the Triangle has the license plate bandit struck? I’m going out to my garage and make sure nobody switched out my license plate while I wasn’t looking.
And finally the “I know nothing” defense showed up again when Little was asked if Butch Davis should be fired:
No, he did nothing wrong. What did he do? If you send your child out and your child says he’s going to the movies but he goes to a party, you don’t really have control after you step out of the picture. He had nothing to do with anything that went on. It was all me and [Marvin Austin’s] ill-advised mistakes.
