UNC Players Spray Painted The Visiting Locker Room After Beating Duke

After whooping Duke 45-20 last week, North Carolina began the traditional spray painting of the victory bell on the field. They then wheeled it into the locker room to continue the job, and that's where things got out of hand. » 11/24/14 6:23pm 11/24/14 6:23pm

UNC Athletes Were Steered To School's Sports Ethics Professor

The report on academic fraud in UNC athletics focused mainly on the prevalence of so-called "paper courses"—one-on-one independent study classes requiring minimal work for inflated grades to keep players eligible.

​Rashad McCants Made The Dean's List At UNC Without Attending Classes

Rashad McCants, who starred on the 2005 North Carolina championship team, comes clean about his experience at UNC—and says academics could hardly have been more of a sham.

UNC Athlete Did Not Receive A-Minus On That Awful Rosa Parks Paper

This picture, which became the thumbnail for the whole UNC academic scandal, is not a picture of an A-minus paper. It's not even a picture of a completed paper. According to Mary Willingham, the whistleblower from the Outside The Lines piece in which the paper was shown, it is probably a draft paragraph, to be used as… » 4/05/14 7:32pm 4/05/14 7:32pm

This UNC Athlete's Paper Is A Joke. Who's To Blame?

Iowa State Beats North Carolina In Frantic, Bizarre Finish

Iowa State came back to beat North Carolina in an exciting final few minutes that were totally undercut by the final seconds. The last play of the game for the Tar Heels, like the final minutes, was totally out of sync. The Cyclones took the ball with 16 seconds left, advanced up the court and Deandre Kane slashed to… » 3/23/14 7:45pm 3/23/14 7:45pm

John Henson And His T-Shirt Think The NCAA Is A Scam

Milwaukee Bucks forward John Henson spent three years at the University of North Carolina before jumping to the NBA, and it looks like those three years as a Tar Heel left him with a pretty solid understanding of what the NCAA is really about.

Here's Video Of UNC's Anticlimactic Buzzer-Beater

UNC came back from down 17 19 against Miami this afternoon. Their only lead of the game came at the buzzer, when Kendall Marshall drove valiantly to the hoop and... dished it off to Tyler Zeller for a lay-up. Still, a game-winning buzzer-beater is a game-winning buzzer-beater, a win is a win, and so on. The Heels… » 3/11/11 2:30pm 3/11/11 2:30pm
