ACC must not forget its small-town roots, even as it takes New York by storm

The Atlantic Coast Conference came into existence on May 8, 1953 when representatives of seven schools from bordering states met at the Sedgefield Inn outside Greensboro to draw up a set of bylaws for the new league. It was a union that flourished over the next 60 years as much because of the intimacy of its rivalries as the collective excellence of its teams. Sadly, that tradition is now officially a thing of the past. (Wilmington Star News)
