UNC's Baddour Sheds More Light On Academic Misconduct

WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) -- The athletics director at the University of North Carolina says possible academic misconduct by football players may date back a year or more.

Multiple media outlets reported that Athletics Director Dick Baddour and Chancellor Holden Thorp spoke to the UNC Board of Governors at a meeting on the UNC-Wilmington campus.

Asked by a board member if cheating could have happened in prior years, Baddour responded, "The short answer is yes."

Baddour said the investigation will go where the information leads.
The investigation centers on football players and a woman who also worked as a tutor for coach Butch Davis' son.

The football program is already under NCAA scrutiny for the possibility that some UNC football players have had improper contact with a sports agent.

    UH OHHH!!! When the AD is the whistle-blower of his own program then you KNOW they have MAJOR problems! What ever happened to all that "classy" talk? I thought UNC was too classy to cheat, and that if UNC cheated then they'd win like teams in the SEC? Guess that plan backfired! Oh well, it's not like they have anything to vacate if the NCAA cracks their whip on em, they didn't win anything this decade. Awww snap!
