UNC athletic director Dick Baddour has released a statement through the university concerning the dismissal of Marvin Austin and de facto dismissals of Greg Little and Robert Quinn. You can read the full text here, but please focus your attention on this one nugget in the closing:
I hate that these issues have hurt the University of North Carolina and our fans. We have so much to be proud of as a University. We will learn from this and we will become a better program as a result.
"Better" in the Goofus/Gallant sense they very well may be, when all the housecleaning's done with, but a Tar Heels squad expected to contend strongly for the ACC title sits currently at 3-2, tied with Miami for third place in the Coastal division.
