Jay Smith and Mary Willingham talked about their book Cheated: The UNC Scandal, the Education of Athletes, and the Future of Big-Time College Sports. In the book, they report on two decades of academic fraud at the University of North Carolina, where student-athletes were given fake or “paper classes” to artificially boost their grade point averages. The authors examine the inner-workings of the fraudulent system, the role university officials played, and the $16 billion college sports industry. close
