Valvano should have known. He said he did not. He paid with his job.
Roy also should have known. He says he did not. He should also pay with his job.
These two things are completely different. The shoes/tickets were given to the players by the NCSU athletic dept. If the athletic dept didn’t keep track of what happened after that, who would? UNC’s issue is institutionalized academic fraud. Why should the athletic dept be responsible for insuring that the grades/courses are legitimate? Why shouldn’t the academic administration be responsible for that?
Did Roy know? Of course he did. Why else would he have moved his players out of the sham classes? But believing that he knew and proving it are two completely different things. To fire Roy, you have to prove that he knew and thus covered up NCAA violations.
