>>Transcript In UNC Probe Could Be Julius Peppers'

(Chapel Hill, NC)  --  The academic scandal at the University of North Carolina may have just gotten a lot worse.  A 2001 academic transcript published by "The Observer" a few days ago may belong to former Tar Heel Julius Peppers.  UNC officials said on Monday that the transcript appears to be from a former student, but could not release any further information due to federal law.  If the transcripts are authentic, it could propel UNC's ongoing academic scandal into another level.  The issue is whether individuals at the university set up no-show classes mostly taken by athletes with the intent of helping them maintain eligibility to play sports.  Peppers was a star football player at North Carolina from 1999 to 2001.  He is now an All-Pro defensive end for the Chicago Bears.  He played with the Carolina Panthers from 2002 through 2009.
