Matt Hayes of The Sporting News has always been one of my favorite national writers and I have historically ascribed more value to his views and commentary than to the average sports writer. Well, today, Hayes just catapulted himself into the stratosphere of the “Mount Rushmore” of the national media.
In this MUST SEE 3 minute video, Hayes rips UNC-CHeat and the NCAA from all angles while he publicly recognizes the questions that SFN has been making for years regarding the true commitment and thoroughness of the NCAA’s obviously flawed “investigation” at UNC. We wanted to memorialize some of the quotes from the video. We’ll have more commentary later —————————
“I can tell you someone who is NOT getting to the bottom of it all — that is the NCAA”.
“It took [the NCAA] two years to NOT get to this point already.”
“The University and the athletics department are combining to have NO-SHOW classes to get credit …”
“The goes from football to basketball…this could be the harshest penalty that any University has ever seen, academically”
“It seems that the academic side and the athletics side…everyone is working together. Could this be ‘worst case scenario’?”
“We’ve learned after two years that the NCAA is not that good at investigating”
