Duke vs. North Carolina, let the summer/fall fun begin…..

Can you imagine the UNC basketball team having to deal with anything remotely close to the Duke lacrosse scandal?”

Although one hopes that things have changed since the lacrosse party, college sports teams, both male and female, have been hiring strippers for years. You may recall that St. John’s had a scandal which was terrifically damaging: the team hired a stripper in Pittsburgh, who accused several of them of raping her. The team had the bad taste and good fortune of videotaping the evening’s events, which kept them out of court, but also got three of them kicked out and three others suspended and ended up bringing Mike Jarvis down.

It’s nothing new; what was new was that a perfect storm of media hysteria and kneejerk reaction made Duke a lightning rod.

Here’s the other difference, and perhaps the real reason why a UNC team would be much less likely to get in trouble for this: in Durham, Duke athletes have almost no chance of getting things brushed under the rug – and that’s fine with us, frankly. In Chapel Hill, athletes are much more likely to be indulged than they are in Durham.

Again we ask the question, “Can you imagine the UNC basketball team having to deal with anything remotely close to the Duke lacrosse scandal?”

Have there ever been any problems among the basektball team and it’s players/coaches at the Univeristy of North Carolina at Chapel Hill?????

*****Again, we thank our Triangle correspondent Bruce Mitchell for sending us this extensive list from the Duke Basketball Report.*****


  1. you can not be serious.

    The Greensboro Sports Enquirer. Seen Big Foot lately?

    This has only been floating around NC State and dook web sites for years. Most of those trangressions happened after the players left the school and were in private life or with a pro team. I’m sure you could do a similar list for just about any major school in the country and have one just as long if not longer.

    Any other fluff for us today Andy? These sports dog days of summer make it tough on you sports reporters huh?

  2. Waiting to see “a similar list for just about any major school in the country”, looks like all we have so far is unc to laugh at.

  3. You could put together a list at every school. I don’t that is the point. The point is this is the one for unc. Some of this happened while in school, some before unc and some after unc.

  4. You left out John Bunting he should have been charged for impersonating a football coach.

  5. Waiting on the list for people who work for this website. LOL . I know you guys have some dirt in your past.

  6. Face it….UNC is “The University of No Class”

    Tell Phil Ford to go Drain that one! LOL! Hic!

  7. Do not forget Roy Williams got caught cheating at Kansas, he was giving gifts to the seniors but said he did not know the rules so the NCAA let him get by with it, I have never heard the first thing about Coach K breaking any kind of rule.

  8. What???? No talk of the media football preditions for the ACC. I figured you guys would be all over the whopping four votes the Tarholes received for winning their division. Apparently Larry Keech still has a vote.

  9. HokieNation,
    Don’t expect these guys to actually cover the news pertianing to ACC teams outside of North Carolina. Four votes? Looks like Butch has turned the Heels around! When does basketball season start?

  10. We have given you folks everything you need here at this site. Without the entertainment that we have provided, most of you would still be down at the Pickens Drive-In looking for your jolleys.

    You better tell Somebody!!!!!


  11. I was actually pretty impressed with the local radio station down here this morning. They were playing Tom O’Brien’s press conference from the big event this weekend. I woke up a few minutes later and it was over. I know you guys are all over NC State football up there so be warned, drink plenty of coffee.
