And The UNC Scandal Enters The Cannibalism Stage

The NCAA and the ever-probing media have already taken their toll on the UNC football program, so it was only a matter of time before the crew of the SS Tarheel, beleaguered and tired in their defense of the program, ultimately turned on each other. In ye olden times of seafairing, this involved mutiny, putting your captain over the side of the boat, and drinking all the rum before piling the boat onto a reef and dying of starvation on a desolate island. 

That sounds bad, but this involves something far worse than rum, sodomy, and the lash: lawsuits.

I can tell you, everybody that we represent is furious about the timing of Butch Davis’ firing,’’ Brown, whose Brown & Associates firm is based in Charlotte, said during a phone interview this morning. "They feel like their investment was based on Butch Davis being the head coach … and the public reassurances over the past year that he would remain the coach. … They want answers."

That is from Don Brown, an attorney representing fans angry over Butch Davis' firing and their funding of Kenan Stadium's "Blue Zone" project.  For lawyers, "answers" usually mean "someone else's money," or perhaps "someone at UNC's head on a stick." It could be both by the time this is all over, but remember: no matter how ugly this gets, no one can take that Music City Bowl win away from you, North Carolina. (Until they do in the form of vacating the entire 2010 season, I guess.  But not a minute before that, NCAA, and don't even try.)
