Wow. That was as illuminating as the infamous Lawrence Taylor book. Of course, that didn't change anything either.

Re: McCants : I took sham classes 


"McCants told "Outside the Lines" that he could have been academically ineligible to play during the championship season had he not been provided the assistance. Further, he said head basketball coach Roy Williams knew about the "paper-class" system at UNC. The so-called paper classes didn't require students to go to class; rather, students were required to submit only one term paper to receive a grade."


Uh-oh, Roy!

Re: McCants : I took sham classes 


A copy of McCants' university transcript, labeled "unofficial" and obtained by "Outside the Lines," shows that in his non-African-American Studies classes, McCants received six C's, one D and three F's. In his African-American Studies classes, 10 of his grades were A's, six B's, one a C, and one a D. The UNC registrar's office declined to send McCants an official, signed transcript because of a May 2005 hold on its release. According to the UNC Athletic Department, McCants had university property that had never been returned.

Re: McCants : I took sham classes 


In the 90-minute "Outside the Lines" interview last month, McCants said he is planning to write a book about his basketball and collegiate experience.


I wonder if he needs a ghost writer?

They've ignored everything else that has come out in the last couple of years, so why not this?  Just another rogue student athlete.

and by 2009, when the basketball program hired a new academic adviser, the UNC paper-class system had all-but ended.

and he put just a little zinger in there for the UNC fans.

"If there are Carolina fans that don't like what's I'm saying and don't like what's happening right now, they need to look in the mirror, see that it's a bigger picture," he said. "...

Nothing is going to happen to UNC. The past two years have proven that.

Uh-oh, Roy!
If we can trust Wainstein to truly be independent, this would be a great interview.  Wainstein is a prosecutor, and probably knows pretty well when someone is blowing smoke, moreso than an OTL reporter.  If he can corroborate his story and stick to the facts thru that, it would certainly make for a much more damning finished product.

I don't know, maybe Roy Williams is really a good guy, I surely don't know him, but I would really love to see him get absolutely lit up thru this process.

My favorite is his claim that he made Dean's List one semester and never attended a single class. LOL!

Re: McCants : I took sham classes (Roy knew) 


this here is juicy:

McCants said he was headed toward ineligibility during the championship season because he had failed algebra and psychology, which accounted for half of his credits, in the fall of 2004. He had two A's in AFAM classes in addition to the F's. He said coach Roy Williams informed him of his academic troubles during a meeting ahead of the spring semester.

"There was a slight panic on my part ... [he] said, you know, we're going to be able to figure out how to make it happen, but you need to buckle down on your academics."

He said Williams told him "we're going to be able to change a class from, you know, your summer session class and swap it out with the class that you failed, just so the GPA could reflect that you are in good standing."

He said Williams told him "we're going to be able to change a class from, you know, your summer session class and swap it out with the class that you failed, just so the GPA could reflect that you are in good standing."

McCants ended up in four AFAM classes in the following semester, earning straight A's. He said he didn't know what Williams was getting at with the summer school class replacement reference, and he never talked with Williams about it again. The transcripts show he had received one A in an AFAM class in the summer of 2004.

"I remained eligible to finish out and win the championship, his first championship, and everything was peaches and cream," McCants said.

He said he is sure Williams and the athletic department as a whole knew "100 percent" about the paper-class system.

Sounds like McCants benefitted from some of the infamous yet unrevealed fraudulent grade changes to remain eligible... and Roy was very aware.

Not only did Roy know about, but it sounds like he actively lead the charge to keep his guys eligible.

"Good guys" don't advocate shooting members of rival fanbases, even with BB guns.

Face it, Roy is a lying, piece of ****, classless redneck.
