UNC Holds Fake Classes For Athletes

(Metro) The University of North Carolina allegedly placed athletes in fake classes over an 18-year period to help keep their grades up and keep them eligible to play. 

A university commissioned report released Wednesday says academic advisers conspired with the African and Afro-American Studies department manager from 1993 to 2011. 

The classes allowed about 1,400 student-athletes to skip lectures and instead submit a paper graded by the manager rather than a professor. 

No coaches or athletic administrators are directly implicated in the report. 

School officials say it's an academic issue as well as an athletic one.
