Stephen Lynn: Rules for athletes

Rules for athletes

If an academic student on a full scholarship were to start failing classes, he would lose his scholarship based on grade guidelines. If that same academic student kept the facade of good grades by being given help from unscrupulous tutors, that’d be considered fraud!

Interesting how UNC-Chapel Hill’s football team has blatantly broken all kinds of scholarship rules for years by taking false classes and being hooked up by teachers yet nothing’s happened to them! I guess money is more important to UNC’s athletic department than honest academic standards.
