I just got my latest ACC Sports Journal and in the letter from Editor Dave Glenn he announces that major changes are coming to to the magazine that has been around for 35 years. It sounds like new investors and/owners are coming and Glenn’s role will be reduced and he will focus on his other ventures.
Considering what has been going on in Chapel Hill, I have been waiting for the ACCSJ to provide some of the hard hitting investigative journalism Glenn and the magazine became known for over the years.
What did this issue include? More football previews!!!! Were those not in the last issue?
Maybe the ACCSJ has simply lost its niche? It used to cover stories nobody else in the ACC media would write about. It used to dig deeper into unique and controversial stories than any of its competitors in the local media. It was a “must read” for ACC fans to get the truth on certain topics. State fans will remember the efforts put into the story of Tramain Hall’s adventure to get to NC State and the recruitment of AJ Davis quite well.
Now, we have UNC experiencing the single biggest scandal in the last 25 years of college sports in the state of NC and the ACCSJ has, for the most part, sat on the sidelines.
What a shame.
