    So...the NCAA doesn't really enforce the academic eligibility status of the athletes.

    Digging deeper, I found more interesting facts surrounding his academic career...

    It's ridiculous how backward the South still is.

    Given that it's UNC with their recently handed down sanctions, this isn't a surprise.

    Nothing to be seen here.

    A lot of truth to this post, but still striking to see it all laid out.

    I don't really doubt its authenticity, I am just wondering why the name was changed everywhere but not there. Also why the university used an existing student's grades and information for the webpage demonstration.

    I will concede the point that there is a higher % of 'yokel factor' down here.

    I would counter, unfortunately though, the driving mantra of win at all costs in major college sports exists across the country. Do you not think there are 'rocks for jocks' courses available at most schools. Are there not tutors helping these kids pass these classes, and to what level of help we don't know? Aren't there still jokes on the ISU campus about athletes that have never been seen in a classroom? There certainly was in my time there.

    Bottom line, the UNC case was an extreme example, but there have been too many instances of top athletes making it through a few yrs of college academically that came out functionally illiterate.

    I don't like it, but I don't know how you fix it.

    I'll grant you that the corrupt activities are much more "sophisticated" at the northern schools (i.e PSU)...

    Happens everywhere. Even Stanford has special "Jock classes" that athletes from every sport take. They are not exclusive for athletes but they do not show up on the general course catalog. Athletes are the only ones made aware of them.
