larly onerous at the University ofArizona last spring, where four underclassmen from Lute Olson's NCAA runner-ups declared their intentions to bail out ofschool. And at Carolina, Forte's exit (not unlike those of Wallace and Stackhouse after only two seasons) has made plenty offans particularly unhappy. The longer a player stays in the program, the less painful is his leave-taking. The continuing quandary, of course, is all about what the recently disbanded Knight Foundation's Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics calls "a prevailing money madness." The commission, chaired by former UNC System President Willian1 C.

And, while North Carolina has not been one of the 58 Division IA schools (out of 114) punished by me NCAA over the past decade for all manner of rules violations, UNC clearly is under pressure to continue its participation in the "arms race." If UNC needs a head coach who understands the massive changes in col- lege basketball, it has him. Doherty, who started as a sophomore on UNC's 1982 title team, returned to college coaching just as the Knight Commission was beginning its first inquiries into college athletics in 1989.
