NCSU orientation classes for athletes a hot topic for Carolina fans

UNC fans took a page out of rival Wolfpack fans' notebook this week by using a message board to draw attention to what they view as suspect academics at N.C. State. What they focused on are two courses offered to athletes at NCSU, identified as USC 103 and USC 104. No one received anything less than an A in the fall 2011 semester, and one of the instructors is also an academic coordinator for football players. (Raleigh News & Observer)
