UNC, the gift that keeps on giving

If you know me, you know I am a big NC State fan and being such a fan, I have grown up learning my ABC's:  Anybody But Carolina.  Living in Raleigh for several decades, you grow tired of hearing Carolina fans talk about their "Carolina Way", always being held to a higher standard than everyone else.

Over the past two years, the truth about the Carolina Way has come to light.  They have had a long series of unrelated problems come to light, including athletes who got good grades in classes that never met, who read at a 5th grade level, took money from sports agents, and so many more....

A lot of the media coverage has been at the local NC level, but perhaps as a Christmas gift, all of this has appeared in the past two weeks.  For your reading pleasure:
