    The hypocrisy with the NCAA is thick.

    So, they can't review UNC's fraudulent college courses because it isn't in their "wheelhouse," but the NCAA clearinghouse has no such qualms about digging into high school transcripts to see if they pass muster.

    I think we have a real issue here. If we wore blue, we would be all set. But when we wear blue (at least in basketball) we lose, and in football, our blue is of the wrong shade. The right shade of blue, whether it is Carolina blue, Kentucky blue or Duke blue somehow acts as a force field, preventing the NCAA from seeing or acting on the misconduct.

    Sugar, had an inkling. So I forget, do you have to go JUCO if you're a class or two short or can you prep?

    A class short (or SAT scores) is prep.

    Crap...

    Our secondary has already taken a beating in terms of depth, and we haven't even played a game yet / had an injury. Discouraging, at a key position of need.

    Maybe North Carolina understood something about Pierre's academic qualifications that Syracuse just didn't?

    maybe our admission standards aren't as high as some think they are ie: Thompson brothers. ;)

    Or he was a backup plan for them and they decided not to waste time going through the NCAA clearinghouse.

    I dont necessarily think its this. Let's face it, schools like Vanderbilt, Northwestern, Stanford, Notre Dame, USC, etc. couldn't field a team if the athletes were held to the same admissions standards as regularly matriculated students. My understanding is that schools like those (and all other schools for that matter) have a minimum "standard" for admissions of athletes. Then, in special cases, with the coach's urging, they stretch the standard from time to time. Babers was probably asking for the stretch, admissions agreed, but Pierre simply didnt meet the pre-reqs.

    I have no idea who the Thompson brothers are, but I would've been shocked had the result of this turned out any differently. So, for those people getting on the previous coaching staff for some of the better recruits not making it to campus, let's just note that this is the second recruit from the current staff. It sucks even more since it's such a position of need and injuries have already hit the DBs and we're not even to Week 1 yet. Hopefully both Pierre and Blair can be brought into the fold for the 2017 class.

    But the better recruits made it to campus in this class. Shaw was a nice get but didn't really have that many offers. Pierre was a risk worth taking when you have an open scholarship, it just didn't work out.

    It's not like KJ Williams or Alin Edouard who were actually the jewels of the class.

    I heard a lot of people saying that Pierre would be on the 2 deep this year. It was also pointed out that SU didn't have a RB like Shaw and that he would be in short yardage packages as a freshman. Based on that, I'd say that both were thought of as quite valuable.

    Yeah, I like your posts but I think both of these guys really hurt.

    I'll hold my tongue on academic casualties until I see Baber's first class with a real recruiting cycle timeline, which is the current class. The 2016 class - you're going to have to roll the dice some when you're scrambling to put together a class during the final months.

    And I think Shaw, Pierre and Moore all hurt - moreso with the latter two because of our depth issues on the DB 2 deep.
