zero chance of this happening. Media wanting to put something in their echo chamber to keep a story alive. Now the media does not write or use social media to inform the public, they write tweet post to impress their fellow media friends,

They are being proactive in announcing what the penalty will be if Chancellors running athletic conferences attempt to interfere in NC politics again. Conferences without universities have no value. It's about time a legislative body stood up and assured the tail wasn't wagging the dog. These are state institutions owned by the taxpayers, they do not belong to Chancellors, they are entrusted to them.
And if they act collectively against the best interests of our taxpayers, adios .

It's really that simple.

A non NC chancellor will not give 2 thoughts about what the NC General assembly says and the NC university would suffer
while i agree with that general sentiment, you think the ACC wants to lose UNC?
No but I think there are a few universities in the CAA who wouldn't be heartbroken about UNCW leaving.

Everyone's focusing on the ACC but we would probably be the biggest losers in this due to our conference configuration of this junk were ever to pass

RE: House Bill 728
Listening to pundits on ESPN discussing resting players in the NBA. Than a point was made that if Silverman didn't care about the fans, then the All-star game would have been played in Charlotte. And soon after a point was made stressing how important it was to play games in China. This is so, so ignorant. Do these people really think they are on top of human rights issues????

They care most about money. Playing in China broadens their fan base. Moving the All-Star game earned public perception points and cost them nothing.

This is what I have been trying to say from the beginning. But so many people look at me like "Huh"? Human rights is so much more of a global issue. These issues in America pail to what is going on in many other parts of the world. It's such a shame how people push their agendas while wearing blinders.

What the hell do you want them to do ? Do something that hurts the business they are in ?
Whoever wasted their time writing this latest crap should be run out of office on a rail by the voters in his district. Its an absolute joke and makes him look a total idiot after the failure of HB2 and the Pat McCrory disaster. I went to high school with Pat and could have never imagined him being so hard headed about his own political future. This bill is just a piggy back on HB2 and will never get the chance to affect UNCW,UNC,ECU,NCSU or any other state school.

It's not about wanting them to do something that hurts their business. It's wanting them to stop taking hypocritical social stands.
