The Asst. coach that recruited her to play for UNC left before the season. She doesn't seem happy and wants to transfer. I don't know if there is more to it than that. I can assure you though, that Dawn will not let someone come in that she can't control 100%.

I can't blame someone for wanting to transfer from UNC. I know that they UNC graduated folks who work for the NCAA and ESPN have largely kept this under wraps but they have rampant academic fraud and sexual abuse charges now levied against them as an athletic department. They made up classes, had fake sessions where people "attended" but no class actually took place, etc. etc. etc.

I wouldn't want a tainted degree, just saying.

She probably did clash heads a little bit with the coaches. Hopefully it won't continue to be an issue for her. She needs to learn to share the basketball a bit more.

I doubt they would punish women's basketball unless the scandal applies to some of the female players as well. I don't recall that being said yet.

If we get Cooper it would probably hurt us with Lambert, but we could still take both. We're working with 4 scholarship spots.

Whether they punish that particular sport or not, the whole athletic department has tainted the degrees for any student athlete associated with UNC. EVERY SINGLE ONE. Why this isn't being covered more is beyond me, they are MAKING UP classes and marking attendance for them!

They aren't going to bring the hammer down on every student athlete in every sport at that school. They didn't even do that at Penn State.

You aren't understanding what I am saying.

I am not saying the NCAA is going to bring any hammer down. I am saying that the public outlook of an athlete's degree from that university should be tainted, no matter what sport you are in at this point. So far its been found to be true for the football team, the men's bball team, track teams, etc. The entire athletic department at UNC should be under question at this point, and therefore any degree obtained by an athlete at that school should be looked at with some incredulity.

UNC is only the school that got caught, degrees by student athletes get looked at with incredulity just about everywhere anyways because people know that the student-athletes most of the time are only there because they want to be just plain athletes. FSU got busted for this same stuff just a few years back. It happens everywhere, it's just a matter of getting caught.
