When it was reported that 12 different North Carolina football players had been given parking citations on 28 different license plates, just about everyone was able to figure out that something incredibly shady was going on. Today, it was revealed that Tar Heels wide receiver Greg Little had a few of those license plates, including two temporary plates that were linked back to a now-closed dealership. That dealership is now closed because its proprietor is in jail on federal money laundering charges.
It's bad enough that Little was using temporary plates in back to back months on the same car, but the fact that he got them from a man who is now in jail makes it sound a whole lot worse. Not to suggest that Little was involved with this guy's shady business in any way other than taking another temporary plate that he shouldn't have had, but this might open up a whole new can of worms for the NCAA. Oh, and another one of the plates he had on his car one of the times he was cited is a plate that doesn't even exist.
The evidence of wrongdoing keeps mounting, and it wouldn't be surprising to see the NCAA come down hard on the North Carolina Tar Heels football program.
