At a faculty retreat for journalism professors, UNC’s athletic director Bubba Cunningham commented on the status of PJ Hairston.

According to Andy Bechtel, a journalism professor and a copy editor, when Cunningham was asked whether or not Hairston will play this year, he responded by saying “Yes, but not all the games.”

I’m sure this will squelch the questions that Roy Williams is “tired” of answering about this summer’s Hairston saga.
