    This segment looks at how lower admission standards, coupled with higher graduation requirements, have required many top schools to commit to learning specialists to ensure student athletes can keep up.

    Goldberg interviews Mary Willingham, a UNC whistle-blower who formerly worked with athletes.

    Willingham has claimed to have data showing that 60 percent of 183 athletes at UNC, specially tested over an eight-year period, could not read at the high school level and that another 10 percent could not read above the third-grade level.

    Goldberg also interviews two football players from the university -- Michael McAdoo and Bryan Bishop.



    "Real Sports" says its investigative team spent six months vetting multi-million dollar academic advising centers, which are responsible for helping student-athletes with "elementary educations" graduate from college.

    The episode looks at programs at UNC, the University of Memphis and the University of Oklahoma.
