#3. A UNC Player Didn’t Get an A- on a One-Paragraph Essay
As the story continued to unfold, the whistleblower herself had to clarify that the A- was actually the final overall grade of the student … who made that paper for an introductory assignment … that was actually a first draft copy with no grade … and wasn’t for a bogus class. ESPN just edited the video so that the moment she showed the paper came right after the part where she was talking about “classes that didn’t exist,” and sports journalists did the rest.
