Found July 28, 2013 on SCACC Hoops:
Because how else do you explain how he, of all the people in the state of North Carolina, would get caught driving 93 miles per hour in a 65 mph zone just outside Webb, North Carolina. From Eric Prisbell at USA TODAY:  Hairston, 20, was driving a 2008 Acura TL southbound on Interstate 85 outside of Webb, N.C., where he was pulled over at 4:30 p.m. by the State Highway Patrol, said spokesman 1st Sgt. Jeff Gordon. This comes less than two weeks after Durham police dropped all charges after being arrested for possession of marijuana and driving without a license, all while he’s being investigated for both his relationship with a sports agent and Haydn “Fats” Thomas. Seriously, it’s already been said that Hairston is likely going to miss multiple games due to impermissible benefits. Can you suspend someone for “just being a dumb ***?” I’m curious, is the 2008 Acura TL his? Normally I wouldn’t ask, but track records are track records. Anyhow, the new reality for Hairston is that this is not just about UNC anymore. This is about his future. The Tar Heels’ leading scorer from last year could have gone to the NBA and had a shot at being an early second-round pick (according to myself). With another year of college ball as a starter, one would expect him to have a chance at being a first-round pick.  That first round pick would bring with it a guaranteed contract as well. Every mistake he makes now is being closely monitored by those NBA teams. Every time his reputation takes a hit, he’s potentially costing himself millions of dollars. Wherever Hairston was going in such a rush this Sunday, I hope it was worth the dollars he’s losing for committing another boneheaded move.

Hairston suspension could hurt Heels

Ask a college basketball coach about all the conference realignment in recent years and they just shake their heads: It's a shame, they say, the big-money sport of football has so drastically changed the fate of the less-money sport of basketball. Football drives the bus, basketball is along for the ride. In realignment, the sport of basketball lost. This feeling is true in...
