Editorial mistaken about Hatchell

As a women’s basketball season ticketholder, a faculty member and a female, I felt compelled to respond to the misleading Daily Tar Heel editorial from Thursday on the women’s basketball situation.

Refusing to Argue With Stupidity

That or their target audience is literally PackPride. Either way it’s truly a recklessness that reeks of desperation. (Tar Heel Depot)

Chansky’s Notebook: Vicious Cycle Continues

Will the Wainstein Report ever go away? Not looking like it. For the media and all those ABC fans, the Wainstein Report is the gift that keeps on giving. That one last independent probe into the academic scandal, which the Board of Governors and Chancellor believed we needed, traded transparency for protection of the university’s image and brand. Needless, I say, because what was broken had already been fixed. (Chapelboro.com)

Consider UNC woes in broader context

As as happened with many schools boasting high-profile sports teams, UNC has landed under the spotlight for misconduct.

Despite some outrageous claims from disgruntled former basketball player Rashad McCants, the evidence has generally cleared the marqee sports programs and pointed to issues elsewhere.

(Durham Herald-Sun)
