UNC athletes have been under scrutiny lately. First, they had a paper class that met once a semester. Now we have the story of UNC players getting females to do their schoolwork before having sex with them.
A former defensive lineman, Tydreke Powell, took the time to call into a local radio station to discuss his time at UNC, which included promiscuous studies and how Butch Davis told the team that if any of them were here for an education, they should have gone to Harvard. This is funny, because UNC is a pretty good school academically and these kids typically don’t have the grades to go to Harvard.
There is a lot to take in from that interview. First and foremost, the basketball players have it easy. They don’t even show up to class and get chicks to take their tests. Secondly, how about the four football players who would run a train on that girl after she finished their work? Poor girl. Lastly, from his comments that players were told to intentionally fail an aptitude test in order to get “note takers,” it sounds like UNC could be in a world of trouble if more players begin to speak out. This doesn’t help Roy Williams or the UNC basketball team’s case at all as they try to dodge any sort of repercussions from this..
