    I would like to see this professor’s email and phone records for the past 5 years.
    There is no telling what would come to light. So many revenue sports athletes took classes from him.

    By the way, he resigned from his position. he has not left the staff. He is still a professor. He took a 12K pay cut and is still on staff at a rate of 159K.

    I’m looking forward to more info on why NIKE was making contributions to his non profit he set up which is tied to Marvin Austins’s cell phone.

    Oh, the tangled web we weave. UNC never dreamed that some guys retired from Blackwater and NCSU grads would be the ones investigating this. Think they have access to a few resources?

    Why would it matter where they graduated from?
