Weird News From 2005

We wanted to find a picture of a previous gold medalist, and came across this picture of Spencer Haywood.  On the way to finding it, though, we came across a bizarre controversy which happened in 2005: Former UNC great Charles Scott (he never liked the name Charlie and didn't use it) auctioned off - or claimed to auction off - Haywood's gold medal.  Small problem:  it was Scott's, not Haywood's. Scott says it was an error.  What a weird deal.  You can see the letter Scott signed in the previous link and read more about it here.

By the way, Haywood runs a very entertaining blog, which you can find here.
