    Annette Flowers: Change of scenery needed?

    Regarding the Oct. 28 Point of View “A chance for UNC-CH to lead the way”: If Brock Baker is so disillusioned by the UNC athletic scandal, why doesn’t he transfer? Why on earth would he want a diploma from UNC to hang on his office wall for the next 40 years or so? Just saying...

    Jeff Sharp: Where’s John Swofford?

    Condolences to ACC Commissioner John Swofford, who apparently has lost the capacity to speak for going on four years now. If I recall correctly, he immediately spoke out in outrage and condemnation against Florida State (twice), Clemson and Georgia Tech when they ran afoul of NCAA rules – ...
