This book chronicles the numerous events that have affected the University of North Carolina and seriously brought into question what was once a sterling reputation, both athletically and academically. From the time that knowledge of controversial actions first emerged publicity in 2010, a number of transgressions, events, and discoveries would redefine what was known as "The Carolina Way." Players, coaches, faculty, and university leaders all played roles in the scandals, and in many cases appeared complicit. This book documents the efforts to uncover the facts of the worst combined academic and athletic scandal in the history of the University of North Carolina, America's first public university. It is a sad tale of expensive and ineffective efforts at spin control preventing the UNC administration from admitting and correcting clear wrongdoing at an early stage in its now four-year effort. The book shows that despite specific, repeated during of both the Chairman of the UNC Chapel Hill Trustees and the Chairman of the Consolidated University System's Board of Governors to be quickly forthcoming and transparent, the administration repeatedly withheld facts until ordered by the court to disclose them or they were exposed by the investigative reporting of several news agencies.
