Swofford doesn't need to push UNC-Duke. That rivalry has thrived by default because State, Wake, Maryland, Virginia, GT, and others in the ACC have fallen off the map in basketball. It's the only good thing about ACC basketball for the last 20 years so who can blame him for tooting that lone horn. - Posted by 4tarheels
problem is he doesn't push anything else in the acc, just things that benefit unc. Does he ever push and promote the uva and vatech rivalry in ANY SPORT? What about miami and fsu? You hear barely anything. Especially with miami and fsu. You would think he would when trying to build up talk in football. Swofford doesn't care about football because unc is not a football school. I remember reading an article on wral about swoffords reactions during the unc state game in raleigh back in 2009. Every time state had a good play or a penaly was called on unc, he would look bothered or unhappy. Now if he is for all schools, why would he feel that way. As commish, every acc school is supposed to be your school. I had a unc fan call me up before the game saying that state would win in raleigh because the refs were going to give state make up calls. I laughed and told him "do you honestly think swofford would help state? You must be drinking".
Id!ot post again Daffney! The entire planet pushes the UNC/Duke rivalry! If he has "pushed" it as you have said then I haven't seen or heard of him doing it but whatever.
"I remember reading an article".............defined as, "I read something, twisted the words because I'm bitter about how bad the athletic program at State is and I am now sharing my version."
You are a true example of a sad State fan who blames others instead of blaming the pathetic school you pull for who hasn't invested into their athletic department the way others have!
You should check out the facts on all the other schools in the ACC who have won ACC or NCAA championships since Swofford took over. 52 national championships overall! Of course States not on either list!
