Welcome to the ACC Microsite!Posted by rtmsf on October 3rd, 2011
To most American sports fans, the mere mention of those two words conjures up immediate images of Michael Jordan from the baseline, Christian Laettner from the top of the key, Jim Valvano searching for a hug, Dean Smith calling for the four corners, and Mike Krzyzewski collecting rings like a Kardashian at Tiffany’s. The ACC, perhaps more than any other conference in our lifetime, defines college basketball. The cultural affinity for the sport down on Tobacco Road and beyond is only rivaled by the SEC’s obsession with the pigskin, and with the recent additions of hoops powerhouses Syracuse and Pittsburgh to the mix, the league stands to become even stronger. It only makes sense that we would begin our power conference microsite roll-out focused on the league with the most history, tradition and passion for the game.
The ACC microsite is intended to focus exclusively on the stories coming out of the league on a daily basis. Our two staffers, Matt Patton (@rise_and_fire) and Kellen Carpenter (@kellenlc), are talented and knowledgeable ACC insiders who plan on bringing you thoughtful commentary, analysis and criticism on a regular basis. Get to know them at Twitter or you can contact them directly by clicking on their names.
Welcome to the next phase in the living history of RTC, the ACC microsite.
