UNC Olympic sports and the impact of the ACC Network

As Cunningham says in the video above, the ACC Network will give the Olympic teams at UNC much more exposure. The network will allow for fans, family, and recruits to watch these teams from anywhere in the world. This certainly will help in recruiting new athletes. It will show recruits, who may not be able to easily get to Chapel Hill, all that UNC has to offer. (Tar Heel Blog)
