UNC responds to realignment rumors
By Heather Dinich
Stop the madness (and the rumors).
North Carolina says it wants to stay in the ACC "for another 60 years at least."
UNC athletic director Bubba Cunningham sent an email to Tar Heels fans in an attempt to squash rumors about UNC possibly joining another conference.
"Carolina is a charter member of the Atlantic Coast Conference and we believe the ACC is the finest conference in the nation. The ACC has been our home for nearly 60 years and we want it to be our home for another 60 years at least. Our speculating on what other league may be better for the Tar Heels would not be productive. We are part of a great league with a strong future and we know that the ACC leadership is serious in its efforts to strengthen the conference and position it for long-term success."
