A copy of McCants' university transcript, labeled "unofficial" and obtained by "Outside the Lines," shows that in his non-African-American studies classes, McCants received six C's, one D and three F's. In his African-American studies classes -- many of which are referred to as "paper classes" because students did not have to attend them -- his grades were 10 A's, six B's, one C and one D.

If you're so stupid that you make a C and a D in AAS courses, you probably have someone who follows you and reminds you to breathe.

I can't say Rashad McCants without following it up with a Darnerien McCants!!!

It sounds as if UNC had a deal with him to pay him some money to STFU, but he was too stupid to understand it and ran his mouth. What do you expect from a person who received a C and a D in a class that was designed to be an easy A for him.

I guess playing ball in Brazil isn't paying to well that he needs to go back to college to get an income.

Is this egomaniac with an inferiority complex being unrealistic?

All signs point to yes, and it brings me no joy to say so.

/wtf is he thinking? We're all replaceable on some level and I've never heard of him. Many millions? Good luck (deserved or not), welcome to shutter island nutball.

Oh, but eff the NCAA. Their silent competition with FIFA and the IOC for most corrupt sports body has passed a level of hilarious sadness into cynical acquiescence. On all fronts.

Kids should be paid if they perform, the rule against compensation cuz : 'hai guys, free college you mostly never plan to use instead of helping you realistically discover your niche when you don't make the NBA so we can bank millions from both you and the gov't' is garbage.

FIFA, IOC, NCAA. Try to beat the corruption.

Wait...I thought the NCAA found no evidence of fraud at UNC a few years back.

Well,the check wasn't a fake, so, that's all the NCAA needed to investigate.

First off, McCants is a Darwin Award waiting to happen with that IQ.

Secondly, the NCAA needs to start thinking about loosening rules regarding money and student athletes. Sure, paying them outright won't work, as it will probably kill several schools (possibly not even exaggerating) if it happened. But jobs and/or allowances for actual school related items are looking like a necessity if they want to keep it from going completely off the deep end.

I still want someone to explain why this is important, we knew about the AFAM courses being a sham a while ago.  To me his terrible grades in other classes seems to show that the rest of the school was pretty clean in the matter.  If he got an A in organic chemistry or something then I'd be concerned.

For the money, I wouldn't be surprised if some boosters offered him some money to shut up without talking to the school.

As much as I'd like to see the administration painted into a corner and forced to take it down, it won't happen.  The conference office doesn't want UNC to take such a big hit, because that threatens the ACC's stability.  And every school outside of FSU, Miami, Clemson, and Va Tech have a vested interest in covering the truth up because those are the only schools that could waltz into other major conferences, should the ACC's financial deals go south.  And the NCAA, as it's principally a collection of university presidents and chancellors, don't want too much of the cheating that went on at Kenan Field House and South Building to be exposed, because then every reporter looking to make a name for themselves starts investigating every major program in the country.

I'd love for the Oro and Willingham cases to result in Baddour, some Trustees and the Rams Club president getting subpoenaed, because the athletic department rotted from the inside and that poison slipped out of athletics and into the wider school.

The NCAA rules are written by the college presidents, and everyone is making too much money to want to significantly change the system.

I'll be honest, I think the best long-term solution is to separate the athletic department from the university, and set them up as "The Chapel Hill Athletic Club" (or "The Tuscaloosa Athletic Club" or "The Longhorn Athletic Club", etc.).  Each athletic club would have an agreement with their affiliated university to use colors and logos, and the university would agree to offer scholarships to athletes that want to attend, on the condition that the athletic clubs have to maintain X number of non-revenue sports.

It's sad to see the college sports scheme imploding.  I think it would have worked longer if the schools and the NCAA hadn't gotten so greedy.  In the span of twenty years they increased the number of football games players have to play by at least 40%, 60% for the eventual national championship.  College basketball games on holidays are now the norm and practices are much more frequent. Imagine any other national, high-profile company doing that and not increasing any employees' pay or passing on any of the stratospheric increase in revenues to the workforce.  It wouldn't happen.  I used to think unions were more harm than good these days, but I definitely think the student athletes should unionize.

Paying athletes will not destroy college sports. That's a lie made up by the NCAA. The point of O'Bannon isn't to establish a compensation plan, just to open a marketplace.

The big business sports are an unmitigated cancer in higher education.

Eh, Higher education in and of itself is a giant scam, so the sports fit right in at most universities.

He is probably going to call on Obama to try and force them to pay him his 10 million, and his mortgage, and health insurance and phones.. etc.

It seems to be SOP these days.

With a pro career that went from the NBA to NBA Development League to France, China, and lately in Brazil, I'm sure he's managed to be a baby daddy a couple times along the way.  True fact -- he was one of Khloe Kardashian's boyfriends back in 2009.  So, just when you thought you couldn't think less of him ...
