The North Carolina Agent Fiasco The John Blake Stain

A man is known by the company he keeps, but also by the company from which he is kept out. - Grover Cleveland

Butch Davis and the North Carolina Carolina Tar Heels made a statement to the college football world when they hired John Blake to head their football recruiting operations.

And now they're learning just what that statement was.

Allegations about Blake's possible role in the North Carolina agent scandals are only Blake's most recent headlines. I've followed John Blake's career with a combination of morbid fascination and interest since his days in the 1990s wrecking the Dallas Cowboy locker room and then the Oklahoma Sooner football program.
