    "You seem to think we are sliding down the integrity scale by leaving the ACC for the Big Ten," the chancellor wrote. "This is about what's been going on at UNC."

    UNC earned every piece of criticism...and then some!

    "In other emails, the chancellor said that Maryland was 'increasingly dissatisfied' with the ACC. 'There was less and less identity with the schools, other than in athletics.'"

    Ummm..... I'm calling bullcrap on that one.

    I fully agree with the chancellor. This idiotic mix of publics and privates is not good for the cohesion of a league. Yet, it's exactly what the leadership of the ACC has been attempting to pull off. I think it's attractive to ND, but we've really sold our souls to make this ND thing work.

    Wow:

    "For some time I have been bothered that these 'traditional rivalries' have provoked toxic reactions from abusive language at the games to riots and car burnings after victories," Mr. Shea wrote the chancellor. "Maybe the most significant result will be that we have disrupted the fan base and that a new base, equally dedicated to excellence and success but more civilized, will take its place."
    Yeah, like that's gonna happen.

    Maryland fans are a bit better than West Virginia, but still an unruly bunch. I won't miss playing them.
