I’ll never be able to look at UNC-Chapel Hill in the same light anymore after the defense they used to defeat the NCAA’s investigation in to sham classes. Essentially they contended the classes mentioned were indeed sham classes but they were available to any student, not just athletes! Every single diploma means less now, now way around that. It’s still a great school, one of the best, but what they have done is a disgrace to every citizen in our State.
