Oh that would just be the BEST thing to have happen....

While I'm 99% sure this will blow over, if you were a freshman and had to choose between two schools, wouldn't you pick the one that didn't have an accrediation report containing the words "academic fraud"?

FTFA: It did lead to UNC being put on probation for a year by the accreditor, a rare penalty for an institution of UNC's stature.

Read more here: http://www.newsobserver.com/news/local​/education/unc-scandal/article18371775​6.html?utm_source=fark&utm_medium=webs​ite&utm_content=link&ICID=ref_fark#sto​rylink=cpy
Isn't "probation" kinda useless if you can violate it with no consequences?

"The NCAA committee cited UNC's backing of the classes for not sanctioning UNC because NCAA rules leave academic fraud determinations to universities."

That right there is the biggest pile of bullshiat i have seen in a ng time outside of the white house.

Fox in the farking Hen house.

What should happen:  UNC loses accreditation  an its sports programs are hit with the so called "death penalty".

What will happen: Nothing.

College student's view of the world:
keggers>sports teams>dorms>student union>other stuff>more stuff>expected class load>everything else on the planet>accreditation (maybe the guidance counselor thinks this.  But even then I couldn't take anyone seriously who went back to high school for anything but teaching).

Is giving someone a degree without them doing the work paying them, or cheating them of their payment?

OK, I'll be that guy.

Paid my own way by studying my ass off in HS and getting a full ride.  And yes, accreditation was important to me and I made sure every school I was applying to was accredited and in good standing.

Also, my HS calculus teacher had a PhD and could have taught in a college if she wanted to.

And it's "cue", not "que".

And when lack of accreditation means you can't get a loan that is >> everything else because then you can afford the keggers, the tickets, the dorm, the food, the everything.

Sorry lack of accreditation would be huge, will never happen because UNC will paper over everything, but might happen to Cleveland State just because

Queue also works.  Probably what I meant.

I can't recommend being all that picky with a full ride.  Then again, I don't think the unaccredited for-profit schools really offer full rides.  You would need something like an Ivy (not they still charge tuition when they denign to accept the middle class or lower [NA to GOP definitions of middle class]) before turning down a full ride.

I grew up watching Dean Smith insist that his players actually keep up with their academics (to the point of badgering a few of them to finish their degrees long after they made the NBA).  At one point in time UNC was the model for an honorable program that actually made the athletes do their school work and still managed to produce one great squad after another.  UNC has fallen HARD.

UC San Diego sometimes has the class (look in the workshop description), https://recreation.ucsd.edu/classes/f​i​ne-arts-diy/

Note, it is a recreation class so it doesn't give any credit toward degrees. I didn't take it when I was there.

And the people actually responsible for this mess have received zero punishment.  Just don't get caught until you can "retire early."

If there is one statement that sums up the last few decades of everything in general, it's "the people actually responsible for this mess have received zero punishment"  If you are rich or connected, you can get away with anything - which is no doubt why everything is getting worse across the board.

UNC says that was a typo. Maybe they meant "academic freud".

I hope she Gibbs slaps the department that pulled this shiat.

Cue means "it's your turn to speak"

Queue means to form a line and wait.

It's 'cue' not 'que/queue'.

¿Que?

Yo dawg...I heard you liked to cue. So I put a que in front your -ue so you can line up and wait before you speak.
