Here’s a bit of a twist in the UNC saga – basketball this time as long-time tutor Jack Halperin resigned in protest over how PJ Hairston was treated after a summer of bad behavior. In an open letter to Roy Williams, Halperin said this:
Roy, after 23 years as an academic tutor, and after going through the devastating football scandal, I am resigning in protest of your disgraceful decision to allow P.J. Hairston to remain on the team.
If I were arrested driving with no license, illegal drugs and a gun in a felon’s car, my employment at this University would end immediately.
Hairston’s DTH headline quote was, “I will play this season.” Since when does the criminal decide his fate?

It’s just one more thing, but they do pile up over there, don’t they?
