The Carolina Way has proved to be exactly what every State fan has told you for years it is: a giant, hollow lie. For every State fan who endured the

Great write-up and fantastic closing line.
God, I hope this is The Reckoning for them. None in the collegiate sports world deserve it more.

Each report uncovers more and more scandal and fraud, wonder what the next investigation will find? Public records requests are still pending, lawsuit pending with more likely to come, Newspapers still digging, NCAA still on campus, and no one with any common sense will believe that poor Ol Roy didn’t know. His trusted adviser he brought from Kansas already admitted wrong doing (NCAA violation) along with a memory lapse as to what he told Roy, although he talked to the coach on a daily basis and the other head academic adviser to bball for many years now at Cornell and she refused to talk! One thing is clear from the report, people have been scared to talk or come forward in the past. We can only wonder if this report will give others the confidence and security to come forward, lets hope so!10/23/2014 at 5:37 AM #59686WufpackerParticipant
I must be getting old. I remember a time when coaches and administrators tossing out the Sgt. Schultz style mea culpa would be looked at as LOIC. Now they’re lauded on drive time talk radio as being really smart.10/23/2014 at 7:09 AM #59689Prowling WoofieParticipant
Absolutely LOVING that this fraud was tied to King Schnoz himself, the Deity of the Carolina Way. But very disappointed (not surprised, mind you) that the obvious dots didn’t hammer Ole Roy. He played for him, he coached under him, he modeled the fraudulent system at Kansas after him, and came home to inherit the well-oiled machine and benefit from it.

Seems from the report Roy tried to stop it. Shows he knew, though.10/23/2014 at 7:40 AM #59695bill.onthebeachParticipant

Yeah our friendly 99.9 was commending Roy for being the smartest person in Chapel Hill. I guess that’s like being the tallest midget. I do think he was trolling though.10/23/2014 at 8:24 AM #59701JohnGalt78Participant
^ Oh yes, Ovary was trolling. He’s paid to troll and he’s damned good at it. Or is he? Hmmmmm, it ain’t good trolling if everyone knows it’s trolling.10/23/2014 at 8:33 AM #59703VaWolf82Keymaster

Morally, ethically and theologically, I oppose schadenfreude. But since I was at State during the V persecution, I shall make an exception. Plus, I hate everything University of No Class.

The air was a little more crisp this morning on my walk, the stars twinkled just a little brighter, the coffee tastes a little better…
Another aspect of this I don’t get. Part of UNC’s spin is to position themselves as reform leaders, paving the way for everyone to follow. In the wake of everything that has been revealed over the last four years, and in recognition of the vast mountain of circumstantially suspect but unproven shenanigans, why on Earth doesn’t the media laugh them off the stage when they start spouting that crap?10/23/2014 at 9:45 AM #59716VaWolf82Keymaster
If you’re already nauseated over the media, then you better avoid Dick Vitale’s inane mutterings this winter. (Is that like saying, “Don’t spit into the wind” or “Don’t eat yellow snow”?)10/23/2014 at 9:57 AM #59717ncsu1987Participant
LOL, yeah Vitale’s been a real disappointment to me. I love the work he does behind the scenes. Over the years his shtick devolved from the original wacky, colorful, occasionally insightful commenter to the ESPN/UNC/Duke shameless promoter, and it just got to be too much. Haven’t suffered through one of his games in years (usually turn the volume down and turn on the radio, or just play some music). Used to follow him on Twitter (again, mainly because of his charity/event updates) but unfollowed him after his insufferable position during the PJ Hairston “unpleasantness”.10/23/2014 at 10:36 AM #5972444rulesParticipant
Hey 87, having never followed anybody on Twitter or paid much attention to ESPN talking heads, I’m curious as to what Dookie V’s take was on Thug Hairston.

Roy “tried to stop it” because even he could see that sooner or later someone would let the cat out of the bag. He was just trying to cover his butt. But the whole thing had already gone too far for too long and he was benefiting from it. Doing the right thing would have meant fessing up and Roy wasn’t about to do that. His feeble attempts at dissembling ain’t fooling nobody.
Willingham is spot on about the culture preventing UNC from doing the right thing.10/23/2014 at 2:02 PM #59754Prowling WoofieParticipant
Willingham and Jay Smith’s book, coming out in March (I think), should make for interesting reading !10/23/2014 at 2:36 PM #59761PackerInRussiaParticipant
As a form of self-punishment, UNC has announced it will unretire Tyler Hansbrough’s number. “Given the unimaginable level of self-awe and love we have for ourselves, you can imagine this hurts us in a deep way and we feel that any additional punishment from the NCAA will be unnecessary,” Bubba Cunningham said without a trace of irony.10/23/2014 at 3:34 PM #59766RickKeymaster
I am not sure why you guys get worked up. Just as Lucy pulls the football from CB so will the NCAA not punish the cheats10/23/2014 at 3:39 PM #59770
