It certainly makes sense for Marvin Austin to attempt to move past his involvement in the UNC agent scandal and subsequent dismissal from the Tar Heels, because it’s to his advantage for teams to focus on what he can be rather than what he’s done. That said, these words from the promising NFL draft prospect have to ring cold and hollow to Carolina fans:
At least four trips made by Austin in 2009 — two to Miami, two to California, none of which he paid for — were questioned. He admits to making the trips but withholds much remorse. "I don’t regret anything," he said. "Everything was a learning experience."
Unfortunately, the words “learning experience” do not contain an “s”, so we’re unable to insert a dollar sign into that quote.
