Betcha' didn't know ...

When Raleigh construction magnate Albert Earle Finley called UNC athletic director Chuck Erickson in 1949, searching for tickets to the UNC-Notre Dame game in Yankee Stadium, Erickson explained that hard-to-get tickets went to the university's most generous boosters. "If you need some money, let's talk," Finley said. Erickson, who doubled as the Tar Heels' golf coach, told Finley that the university had built a nine-hole course. UNC had the land for nine more and wanted to build a second nine. A deal was struck. (Chapel Hill News)
