Cover up, deny, enjoy
There are a lot of takeaways from Andrew Carter’s Sept. 6 news story “Ex-UNC player received thousands” on the UNC scandal.
Mainly, what happened at UNC sets a precedent that no college or university should ever cooperate with local news or the NCAA. In addition, no college or university should accept any form of punishment from its league or the NCAA on the grounds of what happened at UNC was ever punished or considered out of bounds by the ACC or the NCAA.
As attorney Joseph Cheshire said, “It’s old news.” In other words, if you can cover up illegal activity long enough, it’s not something you should be punished for.
