    Apparently, it's a bad thing when your lead fund-raiser for the school is taking your former star player's mom on trips that aren't school related to see her other son play for Notre Dame. Who would have thought?

    Add this to the academic scandal issues, and UNC is in a bit of trouble.

    If nothing happens to UNC I give up on college athletics.

    From what I read there, I am not sure why you'd expect the NCAA to do anything. It sounds like he was making poor personal decisions and fleecing the school but nothing to do with players or recruiting.

    If I took personal trips with a girlfriend (or my wife) and then filed an expense report, I would expect to get fired. I would not, however, expect the SEC to investigate my employer.

    Should have clarified my comment was about their academic scandal. Nothing is going to happen but I would never be able to give up on college sports.

    I think this is a much bigger issue with the NCAA if Tyler is still playing there or if they were still trying to recruit Ben. At this point there doesn't seem to be much upside for UNC, more like a school employee using school funds to try to get a little (no doubt substantially stretched out) nookie.....
