The Matt Jones Podcast: E35 UNC Scandal with Jay Bilas, Andrew Carter & Tony Vanetti


Matt provides a little extra time in this week’s podcast to discuss the North Carolina academic fraud scandal.  After his weekly segment with Tony Vanetti, Matt takes two approaches to discussing the scandal.  First he is joined by Raleigh News and Observer Reporter Andrew Carter, followed by an appearance from Jay Bilas to debate the NCAA’s decision-making process.  Highlights include:

—  The impact Prince had on Tony and Matt.

—  The facts of the case from Andrew Carter.

—  Why Jay thinks the NCAA did the right thing.

    I’m just gonna say UNC doesn’t need investigating. The NCAA needs investigating!!! Are you kidding me?!

    If this were KY we were talking about it would end this program!

    UMASS, Memphis, Syracuse, Louisville AND KY need to be demanding some reinstated wins from the NCAA!!!

    Enough is enough!!! The NCAA’s got some ‘Splainin’ to do!

    After listening to the Pod cast, it makes me even more angry. For Bilas to say they don’t have the rules…the N&O guys says they did not have documentation….that never stopped the NCAA from making decisions without documentation before. Bullshit

    The NCAA three times certified Derick Rose. Then after the season, went back and pulled the rug.

      Because something happened after the season was over. The independent organization that administered the SAT invalidated his test score for lack of cooperation. He did not respond to two letters mailed to his Chicago home (he wasn’t there, but okay). So the NCAA said, we don’t have to determine whether he took his own test. Instead, the player is ineligible retroactively because he now doesn’t have a test score, which was necessary for his initial eligibility in college. Easy peasy.
