On the News & Observer's op-ed page today, UNC-Chapel Hill Chancellor writes in some depth about several issues surrounding his university's football program.
Thorp does so in response to this column from last week penned by N&O editor John Drescher, who called out university faculty for largely remaining silent during a recent faculty meeting at which Thorp had discussed the football situation.
As I report today, Thorp's op-ed offers a defense of a massive expansion to Kenan Stadium now getting underway in Chapel Hill, as well as a vote of confidence for Dick Baddour, UNC's athletics director.
UNC trustees meet this morning in Chapel Hill, and the topic of football will likely come up. Stay tuned here and at www.newsobserver.com for more.
