- Conclusion and Author's Note

Comprised of over 350 pages of fact-based information and data, the book chronicles the past four years of the university’s athletic/academic scandal.  It shows how rather than choosing transparency and ultimate responsibility in regards to the numerous questionable practices that were exposed, the school instead sought to obfuscate the media while also attempting to largely dodge accountability.  The main motivating factor behind those dishonorable actions appeared to be a desire to hold on to ill-gotten athletic accolades (and the prestige and image that came with them), all while undermining the very charges that an institution of higher-learning should ultimately stand for: education and morals.

  • How far back does the data suggest the scandal reaches?
  • How many administrators, faculty members, and coaches (both past and present) have been involved?
  • Have there been connections between UNC and the NCAA that might support an unfair degree of leniency?

These questions and many, many more are thoroughly examined within the book.
