Pretty good article. Has actual quotes and texts from the UNC AD and prez. Three interesting ones IMO:
- UNC AD had long talk with former BIG commish Delany after the USC/UCLA news. Said what he got out of it is that Delany preached "planning and patience". Read that as you may, but to me, it pretty much means either 1) Delany was telling the UNC AD to keep investing in football, plan for the future, and be patient because the time will come for a BIG invite, no need to rush or 2) help the ACC plan and be patient, and if the invest in FB and get better at that, the ACC can have a brighter future. My feel is heavily towards #1.
- Text between the UNC AD and UNC chancellor discussed possible partnerships with the Big 12 and/or the Pac 12. But the one quote that caught my attention was when discussing this partnership, would it form a new league, and would all ACC schools be brought aboard.
- Finally, quotes from Jim Phillips states that they are reviewing the committment to football for all schools, and seeing if all schools are properly investing. There will be metrics to ensure the proper commitmment is there. I'm sure that will be integrated into possible uneven revenue sharing going forward.
