    Please go to the ACC and win 8 games. You will win 3 with Idaho, Elon, and Cambell.

    Cool. I'm not someone that demands respect just because of my profession. If that's the way you feel, great. Not going to hold that against you.

    Lets see...police/fire/EMS/military...which of these professions do you consider not to be respectable? Because one of them is mine.

    Just curious. Fill us all in, paula.

    "Respectable professions do not work on Thanksgiving."

    Well, we know one thing about you, paula...you certainly don't have a career in politics ahead of you. LOL!

    Oh, and plenty of cops/firefighters/paramedics/soldiers (particularly officers) did in fact go to college. You should talk to some. You know, think and do some research before you criticize them. And plenty of those people didn't go to college, either...doesn't make their jobs any less respectable.

    Again, you say I am miserable. I couldn't be happier. And tweaking all you Holes on a daily basis is part of my enjoyment.

    Yep, most military, cops, fireman are just folks who like that stuff or grew up on it. Most never went to college and are on ego trips. Sorry to burst your bubbles.

    Paula has an incurable case of foot-in-mouth disease. He's the second Duke fan on these boards to completely disrespect those who work to keep people safe 24/7/365. Feel bad for him, really...must be miserable to have that much rage inside of him simply because he chooses to root for the athletic department of a university that he never attended.

    Well then do something about it. If I have crossed a line do something.

    And news flash, I don't listen to folks like you who feel they are superior to others.

    Besides doctors all the others you mentioned are doing the job they do for a reason. I know some pretty bad character folks who are policeman and fireman. Just because they do a certain job doesn't make them automatically deserve my respect.

    Sure, we cut corners to keep our athletes eligible. I have no problem with us or any other school doing that, as long as no NCAA rules are violated.

    As for your last comment, way to disrespect police/fire/EMS/doctors/nurses and our military. What is it with you Duke fans these days? You are obviously clueless.

    On a more serious note......What is the likelihood that the ACC will fall apart in the next couple of years? Does the math in fact indicate that the Big10,12 and SEC are going to rip the heart out to the conference? Or will the remaining schools vow to stick together and refuse to jump ship, add UCONN, wait for the storm to subside, rework the media contracts and come out of this thing stronger? If one goes I think they all start going. SEC gets, NCSU & VT, Big10 gets UNC & UVA, Big12 gets Clemson, FSU, GT, Pitt. The private schools are left to pick up the pieces and be a minor football conference and a major basketball conference.

    Maybe no violations but proof of how you kept your athletes eligible for the last 15 years.

    And no, I was not banned for what you mentioned. I was banned for the same reason I have been banned here. Speaking my mind to other adults.

    And your supposed career is nothing but amusing to me. Respectable professions do not work on Thanksgiving. 5 years at UNCheat and have to work on a holiday. That will get old and your bf's will be pizzeria during the holidays as you get older. Sucks for you.

    Oh, you mean the Juliuus Peppers transcript that revealed exactly zero NCAA violations? LOL!

    We're a premiere academic institution, sure. Just like Michigan and Stanford. All make exceptions for their athletes. It happens.

    BTW-Your obsession with my personal life continues to be strange. Didn't you get banned from the high school forums for asking a bunch of young kids where they lived or something? Sorry, paula...you're not my type.

    We've been cheating for at least 15 years? You must have some inside info, paula. You should probably forward that to the NCAA, I'm sure they'd love to know what they missed.

    Michigan got investigated for putting athletes in easy independent-study correspondence courses (i.e. the same "no-show" courses that UNC has) and got cleared because doing so isn't an NCAA violation. Heck, I'm willing to bet that most schools that are actually competitive in athletics do the same thing.

    Pretty sure the B1G would love to have one of the premiere athletic departments in the country to join them, plus UNC's strong academic reputation makes us a good fit for that conference as well. We're national title contenders every single year in at least something...not many schools can say that.

    Like I said, I'm more worried about Duke and NC State finding a good home if the ACC goes under. Football is king in college athletics and Duke has a hard time with that...not going to be very appealing to many conferences. State is just bad at everything and has a subpar academic reputation as well, so they are probably in the worst shape out of anyone. I can actually see a new conference tolerating Duke because of its basketball program and academic rep...State, not so much.

    I would say a conference that has integrity and is proud of their athletes accomplishments in the classroom would not want a school that has recently been discovered cheating for at least the last 15 years in football and basketball and is under multiple investigations and seems to have trouble being honest with the investigators and continues to stonewall.

    I mean, the SEC already has some schools that lack athletic and academic integrity, why would they want another?

    Once again, nice deflection. So you are saying that you do not have a Facebook page with information about you, your family and pictures of you and your family on it on the Internet.

    And why would the SEC or Big 10 want a school with UNCheats reputation? You should hope the ACC still keeps you after all the investigations are complete.

    See what I mean? You clearly have some serious issues.

    I'm not embarrassed about my house, but would I put a picture of it on the internet? Absolutely not. I love my family, but would I put information about them on the internet? No way. Sometimes you have to think things through, paula. I know you aren't used to that, but perhaps you should start.

    Now, back to the topic: UNC needs to go to the SEC or the B1G. Don't want to stay in the ACC to see it simply become the latest reincarnation of the Big East. Duke and NC Stat should probably look for an invite from the CUSA or the SOCON.

    Nice deflection for being embarrassed by your career. Once again, if you think by folks on here knowing what you do, puts you in danger, you are more of a puzzy than I thought. Secondly, if you think people/me care enough about what you say n here to actually try and find you and do harm to you , you are dumb puzzy.

    Plus, you are a coward.

    And lastly, if you think folks on here would act the same way if you actually met them in person, then your folks wasted 5 years worth of tuition money on one dumb azz kid.

    You sure you don't need to better your own life? You seem very bitter. People who are content with their lives generally don't spend their time being bitter on random message boards.

    I'm not embarrassed at all about my career. I love my career, and it is consistently rated as one of the most respected professions in our society. I just thing you have significant personal and perhaps mental issues, and I don't want you to know where I work.

    Agree that UNC should leave the ACC if it looks like the conference is about to go under. UNC is prestigious enough athletically and academically to be guaranteed admission to any major conference. State and Duke are the ones that should be worried...no one wants a poor academic school that is unremarkable in any sport (NC State) or even an elite academic school that doesn't have much of a football program (Duke).
