UNC Academic Scandal

ESPN has a fantastic and mind blowing report about athletes taking “paper classes” at The University of North Carolina where an athlete would sign up for the class and the only requirement was to write a paper to pass the class. 

These aren’t new allegations. ESPN sat down and interviewed  whistleblower Mary Willingham and former football player Deunta Williams about the program.

I feel like this is nothing new. The joke has been around forever. What’s that player majoring in? “Basket Weaving” or “Communications”

With everything happening at Northwestern and players getting to unionize this is just another shot to the NCAA and strengthening the players’ right to be paid to play football.
