07:41 PM ET 03.11 | Former North Carolina football player Marvin Austin told state investigators that it was Terry Watson, an agent based in Georgia, who provided money to UNC football players including himself. The investigation, which is being run by the North Carolina Secretary of State's office raided Watson's office and found "numerous wire transfer records to and from UNC-CH student-athletes, their relatives, friends, and others associated with them." The Secretary of State began this probe into sports agent activity back in 2010.

UNC was dirty as hell. This is not news. That's what you get when you hire Butch Davis as your HC. He is absolutely incapable of winning without cheating. He embodies much of what is wrong with college sports today.

Can't say about NC, but in Texas, any person that compromises the eligibility of a college player faces felony charges. Beware, JFF handlers...
