By now I'm sure you've seen some version of the whole sordid story: how the University of North Carolina had a set of fake classes in the Department of African-American Studies that were taken by 3100 students, especially athletes, over an 18-year period. While it was largely the doing of the department secretary, who established and "graded" the classes, her boss was complicit. Who was minding the store? The See No Evil monkey department chair and the Hear No Evil monkey dean? Anyway, the big dude newspapers like the New York Times and the Washington Post are riding on UNC's case like a rented pony, and I'm afraid the fall out or flying material is going to adhere to other surfaces like academics and research as well. Holy academic schadenfreude, Batman!
I'll scrape my UNC sticker off my ride for the trip back home in December and come back with a righteous LSU one..
