You have to hand it to UNC: those guys have unmitigated gall. Before their new chancellor has her first day on the job, and before lame-duck Chancellor Holden Thorp can announce whatever his “blue-ribbon” panel led by led by Hunter Rawlings, president of the Association of American Universities, has come up with, UNC athletic director [...]
