If you think that Karl Hess, Jamie Luckie or “TV” Ted Valentine coming out of the official’s locker room in the PNC Arena is bad, imagine this:
The profile was familiar. So was the steely look in his eyes. Scott Smith is the spitting image of his famous father, North Carolina coach legend Dean Smith.
Only instead of standing on the sidelines working the refs, Scott was the one wearing the striped shirt at Minges Coliseum for East Carolina’s game against Texas-San Antonio.
I would hope even John Swofford would see the presumed conflict of interest in having the younger Smith in the ACC, but then again, nothing that happens in the ACC surprises me any more.
