Brian Barbour On The Carolina AFAM Scandal

   This seems right to me.
   In fact, I'd go farther: I suspect that the NCAA hammer is going to come down hard on both football and women's basketball. Men's hoops is probably safe. The interactions there were tenuous, and Roy smelled a rat early on, and issued an edict to the advisers to make sure basketball players were not being directed toward AFAM. Because race is in play, it doesn't seem feasible that he could have done anything stronger than that (e.g. forbidding players from taking AFAM courses).

This report seems to provide evidence for a hypothesis/accusation I made awhile back...the athletics program knew about this and were specifically directing students into these courses to keep them eligible.

This is, no pun intended, par for the course with university athletics across the nation.

That's clearly true of WBB. I suspect it's true of football. It is almost certainly not true of MBB coaches. But advisory staff seems to have some weird interstitial status... The dude Roy brought with him from Kansas seems to have known that the classes were easy, but it's not clear whether or not he knew about the obvious fraud.

What a clusterfuck.
