Yeah, Tutor-gate. Figured I would get it out there before someone else did.

The crazy train is running full-speed ahead leading up to Thursday evening’s news conference. Inside Carolina’s Greg Barnes, appearing on 99.9 The Fan this afternoon, backed up Joe Schad’s original notion that somewhere between 6-12 players are involved in an academic situation [...]
