Yahoo report raises questions about UNC

The most damaging part of the Yahoo! Sports report on the NCAA investigation into UNC is that agent Gary Wichard appeared to lie about his relationship with Tar Heels assistant John Blake.

Yahoo Sports quotes Wichard as saying Blake was never Vice President of Football Operations for his Pro Tect operation. “No. When he left Oklahoma, all he ever did was work out some of my veteran guys,” Wichard told the site. “He had his own camp out here. He was doing his own thing.”

However, Yahoo produced a brochure that listed Blake as that position. And Yahoo is reporting that the NCAA investigation is focusing on the relationship between Blake and Wichard.

Blake has not spoken to reporters, and UNC athletics director Dick Baddour continues to say Carolina won’t comment as the investigation continues. But the report continues to cast light on the ugly side of big-time football – and raises difficult implications for UNC. Blake is widely regarded as one of the best recruiters in college football.
