Carolina schools still looking for respect in super-sized ACC

No school from North Carolina has won the conference outright since 1980, when the Lawrence Taylor-led Tar Heels finished 11-1 and beat Texas in the Bluebonnet Bowl. "In order for us to have that type of season, you've got to win at home, take advantage of all (seven) games and pick up a win or two away, and then beat a team like Miami or Florida State or Virginia Tech," Bunting said. The last Carolina-based school to even share the league title was, surprisingly, Duke, which split the 1989 crown with Virginia when Steve Spurrier was on the sideline in Durham. (WCNC.com)
