Illinois writer Loren Tate says North Carolina deserves the national championship this season.

Tate believes any school that would commit 18 years of academic fraud, then spend millions to delay the case for years, deserves to win.

Check out Tate’s thoughts:



North Carolina deserves the NCAA basketball championship.

Any institution that wants the title so badly that it would carry out 18 years of the worst academic fraud in NCAA history, and then spend millions to out-lawyer the NCAA governing body by delaying penalties for years, has earned it.

In a world built on honesty and fairness, the Tar Heels shouldn’t have been playing Villanova’s champions to the wire a year ago.

Fake classes were in full swing when Rashad McCants, Sean May and the Tar Heels defeated Illinois 75-70 in the 2005 title game, McCants making the Dean’s List that year with sham classes and term papers written by tutors.

The school ultimately conceded that roughly 2,000 student-athletes received phony grades as a means of keeping them eligible … an underground fact that for years attracted many more budding super-stars to the campus.

We can wring our hands about illegal financial benefits for athletes and families, and we know these activities are widespread, but nothing keeps the athletes coming like the inside word that they’ll receive A’s without studying or even attending class.
