"The 10 Easiest Classes for North Carolina Athletes"

Sample:

History of The Triangle Region 215

Requirements: Students will be required to write a 75-page research term paper on the people, economy and culture of the Triangle Region from the 1600s to modern times. Or, for a C-grade, students may draw a triangle or correctly identify a picture of Phil Jackson.

All are good except for the last one, which is a low blow.

"Ex-Tar Heels DL sounds off on UNC academic scandal"

From CBS Sports:

"If you ain't inside of there, you don't know what's going on. But Butch Davis came into a meeting one day and he said 'If y'all came here for an education, you should've went to Harvard,'" Powell told the show's hosts.

(Here's Sports Illustrated's story. Here's Deadspin's.)

Probably the most explosive allegation made by Mr. Powell is that an unspecified "they" told some football players to deliberately do poorly on a test so they could be classified as learning disabled. 

For that and lots more details, see the Pack Pride bulletin board, where the interview was discussed almost in real time. Transcript of Mr. Powell's remarks here (scroll down the page). Loooong thread here

"Which NCAA Football Teams Outplay Their Recruit Rankings?"

Short answer:

. . . Navy had the most distance between talent and success. Despite military-academy restrictions that make recruiting top players difficult, Navy made bowl games in four of the last five seasons as they outperformed their recruiting expectations by 57.4 spots on average.
