In, as far as I know, his first major commentary since joining Yahoo Sports Pat Forde unloads on the University of North Carolina and its alleged academic fraud.
Put it this way: If anyone has benefited from the disaster at Penn State, it's North Carolina. This would have been the scandal of the summer if not for the crimes committed in State College, Pa.
History professor Jay Smith had this to say:
"I think it's high time for all of us to know the full extent of the fraudulent behavior. Were members of the 2009 and 2005 national championship teams also beneficiaries of the AFAM/AFRI scam? I for one see no reason to assume that they were not. If the university wants to prove they were not, the whole world is listening."
