Mama Hansbrough steps down

Tami Hansbrough has resigned from her position as major gifts officer at the University of North Carolina, one day after the school put her on administrative leave.

Unlike her son, Tami got called out for traveling too much, including trips to cities where Tyler was playing on the school’s dime. Her love interest and travel partner, former UNC quarterback Matt Kupec, called the trips “school-related fundraisers” but there’s no proof that any work was done. They were just flying around the country to watch Tyler and test the durability hotel beds.

UNC is a mess right now.

    Sweep it under the rug with all the other UNC and Duke issues. Nothing to see here folks.

    Matt Kupec was the QB for North Carolina in the 1976 Peach Bowl vs. UK. He led his team to, well, his team did not score that day.

    I wouldn’t hit it. I am particular about where I put my sausage. I don’t have to take just anything that comes along.

    Ashley Judd stated once that she couldn’t drop Patterson’s mom off after a game in Nashville, Sandy Bell stated it would be a violation. How can this be legal?

    Now that they’re not employed at the school, the NCAA doesn’t have authority. Slimy powder blue ninnies.

    Oh, and by the way, nice ad for the UNC grad program on the front page of your site.

    Matt, no rug, under center, her true position, is worth $349,000 per year.

    You are right UNC is a mess, the sad thing is it won’t get the media attention it warrants and the NCAA will do nothing about it, ever.

    What a dumpster fire is going on at UNCC now! Too bad, so sad. Unfortunately, having a slutty MILF for a mom doesn’t matter to the NCAA. But then neither does having ficticious classes. Ahhh…got it! Ficticious accounting for ficticious classes!!! That’s the tie in!

    Is Stifflers mom who Clappy the clown tweeting too earlier this year. There’s still a baby Hansbrough to humiliate.

    I think the bigger question to me is how can they justify giving a player’s parent a cozy $95,000 a year job.

    Well….I am with #2….she is sort of hot and I don’t care where my sausage goes….but I would definitely put it there……andd NO UNC will face nothing…hell they may take our new final four court back because of Duke and UNC not being able to keep up with Cal and BBN

    @11–That’s odd, because the only time I have ever typed UNC was on the message board.

    Let UK give Nerleans Noel’s mom and job and watch the hairs stand up on the necks of the NCAA investigators. There’s a double standard — one for UNC and Duke and another for every other team in the NCAA. First an academic scandal — How about taking away UNC wins and championships for playing an ineligible player (julius Pepper). Same as Memphis and Derek Rose???

    When did she start this job?

    Tyler was already graduated by the time the expenses in question occurred. Read the entire article, and quit picking the worst/best parts.

    Let me get this straight. UNC paid this woman $ 95,000.00 a year to travel around with Kupec and test motel room furniture. Yep,,,UNC must be very proud. As for Tami,,,,we all now understand what she is,,,,the only thing still in question was the price and now we even know that.

    I have been exiled in North Carolina for going on 11 years now. This is by far the best stretch of my sentence to this state. We win a championship, and that very year UNC is melting down — a gift that keeps on giving each week. Now the Duke scandal! The silence when I wear UK gear is golden!!!

    You all are right to complain that this is not in the national media, but here in NC these stories often lead, or at least get a “later in the new cast,” blurb as the news starts. It’s beautiful. Maybe not nationally, but in state it is ugly!!

    I’ve been in the Tar Hole state for going on seven years, ‘Exiled’. I whole heartedly agree with you. This year has been AAAWWWEEESSSOOOMMMEEE.

    Doesn’t matter if they are a mess. Apparently, they have immunity for all indiscretions.

    I would wear that out for 15 or so, then ask for a TarHole-To-Go box.
