Renner

The Good Plenty to play for… Even though North Carolina can’t play in the ACC Championship this year, don’t tell the Tar Heels there isn’t plenty to play for. The Heels went down to Miami and beat the Canes 18-14 to prove they are this year’s best team in the ACC Coastal Division. I’m looking …

About a year ago I said Adding Miami to the ACC had been a failure thus far. As I said in that article it wasn’t that I was against the move to add Miami. I actually favored it.
