The general consensus of the NCAA’s treatment towards athletes, amongst athletes has never been a favorable one. Current Milwaukee Buck and former North Carolina Tar Heel center, John Henson is the latest to make a profound statement in disapproval of the collegiate sports system.
The Tar Heels have yet to play their guards, P.J. Hairston and Leslie McDonald this year due to eligibility issues. Head coach Roy Williams recently told the media he was unsure about the timetable regarding a resolution to the matter and Henson feels the whole process is just corrupt.
Both players are under investigation to determine if they received impermissible benefits or not.
The former two-time ACC Defensive Player of the Year uploaded a picture of himself on his Instagram account rocking a shirt that read “SCAM” which was a parody of the NCAA logo.
A picture is worth a thousand words but Henson had a few more via Twitter stating, “Love how the NCAA picks and chooses which cases to drag their feet on … #TERRIBLE,” Henson wrote. “NCAA dangles kids’ collegiate careers over their heads with no sense of urgency .. #ItsGottaStop.”
The Tar Heel nation is all about loyalty (especially when it comes to beating Duke University). Peep the photos on the next pages to see how he’s keeping it real now that they can’t touch him.
