Maybe so..... but you would join up in a fraction of a nano-second if you were asked to join them

Jealousy and envy are the two worst human emotions.....

No doubt we would join. and I would be cheering loudest. All conf cheat, and all schools at the least nibble around the edges of the rules.

There you have it... Houston and the other AAC teams need to learn how to cheat more effectively!

All because of their love for St Dean and his boy Roy and the rest of that crooked cabal of elitists on the Hill.

It's not just a NC thing. It's the protection of virtually every flagship campus in public (and semi-public like here in PA and down the way in DE) education. Between a good ole boy/frat house thing or just a raging little man syndrome, the flagship gets all of the perks. Or worse,like in CA, where the Cal system benefits at Cal State's expense.

It's brand protection. Even if another school has better bones, the pecking order is set. Crap like this won't stack up to anything in NC compared to maintaining a public school that attempts to mirror the prestige of the more elite private schools, like UNC "must do" against the Duke's, Wake's, and Davidson's.

Gone are the days when a public school transitioned seemlessly in its mission and scope to acquire different programs and centers of study. The Great Society stuff of LBJ may have given US schools its golden age, and helped usher greater access to higher education, but it only brought on this divide within public education itself. Where are we seeing emerging public schools that rival the flagships? Stony Brook and Binghamton come to mind, but SUNY doesn't have a flagship, and their rising stocks come at other campuses' expense, too. In NJ, a school like TCNJ can only do so much, while the state decides to give a place like Rowan something to set it apart from the other NJ public's...While Rutgers gets to catch up with its Big Ten peers. I wonder if, over time, some of these public schools that want to get away from the power structure don't just try and cut themselves off from the state. That's what survival may look like unless reputation isn't valued. In a place like NC, you're made to know Chapel Hill is the top. Outmoded.
