Sports Radio's Taylor: 'Not Buying' UNC Claim of Clueless Coaches

By    |   Friday, 24 Oct 2014 08:19 PM

Eighteen years is "a long time" for coaches at the University of North Carolina to have "no idea" that grades for their athletes were being systematically inflated, says a Miami sports talk radio host.

"Yeah, I'm not buying that at all," Joy Taylor of "Zaslow and Joy" told Newsmax TV's Ed Berliner on "MidPoint" Friday.

Taylor suggested that the exoneration of coaches at the UNC's legendary sports program is an incomplete conclusion, at best, to an internal probe of grade-fixing and phantom classes for academically subpar athletes.

She also said UNC is likely not the only sports-obsessed campus to prop up otherwise ineligible student-athletes.

"It really is a bad reflection on the school, but you have to remember that money makes the world go around, and … athletics brings in a lot of money," she said. "And you've got to have your star players on the field or on the court. And if it means you've got to put them in a class that may not necessarily be a class at all, that's what you've got to do."
