North Carolina State University’s Chancellor Bruce Poulton has resigned after The News & Observer and the NCAA found that the university was not holding athletes to the same academic standards as other students. Poulton is blaming his resignation on Raleigh’s newspaper for targeting him. While some agree, internal NCSU memos and Poulton’s actions suggest a conflict of interest. The money and power associated with a successful sports program seems to have caused Poulton to allow the rules and academic standards to be ignored for athletes.
