UNC

Although I am no tar heel fan (go wolfpack!) I am disturbed by this episode in ACC athletics.

I think the problem is rampant throughout college sports. Until we hold athletes to the same standards as other students and stop worshiping our sports programs we will have scandals!

Maybe if athletes had to carry the same GPA as other students to be accepted into college, and once accepted they would be released from the team if they didn't maintain sufficient grades to remain in good standing things would be different.

Sports are fun, and many valuable lessons can be learned from being on an athletic team, but we should be building character as well. Special treatment, deals, exceptions and cheating do NOT accomplish the goal.
