3,100 North Carolina Students Affected by Academic Fraud

7660341_600x338

Here are the key components found in the investigation:

• Two people within the department formerly known as African and Afro-American Studies (AFAM)—Julius Nyang’oro and Deborah Crowder—were responsible for offering hundreds of irregular classes at UNC-Chapel Hill between 1993 and 2011.
• These so-called “paper classes” were irregular in that they had no class attendance or faculty involvement, and Crowder, a non-faculty administrator, managed the classes and graded the papers.
• Over the course of their 18-year existence, the paper classes affected 3,100 out of a total of 97,600 undergraduate students who were enrolled at the university during that time period.
• Student-athletes accounted for 47.6 percent of enrollments in the irregular classes.
• Many of the student-athletes were directed to the classes by academic counselors in the Academic Support Program for Student-Athletes. These counselors saw the paper classes and the artificially high grades they yielded as key to helping some student-athletes remain eligible.
• Academic advisors in the Office of Academic Advising also directed non-athlete students to these courses.
• Various university personnel were aware of red flags, yet did not ask questions. There was a failure of meaningful oversight by the university.

Haters Hating On Drake Being With Kentucky (VIDEO)

drake_kentucky-620x270

I think the haters have to open their minds just a bit. “Recruiting advantage” needs to be replaced with “marketing a program”.  Every school can do it however they see fit, Coach Cal just uses his marketing skills, his creativity and the stage that Kentucky has to make the most of everything. Tom Crean sells popcorn boxes, Pitino sells his high moral standards and Calipari chooses to sell to the players a “Player’s First” experience. Check out the haters ripping on Drake representing for the Blue and White.
