They screwed us over, w/o cease, when we were in the ACC and have never done us one marginal favor, unless being a major factor in us leaving and going the harsh road of Independent for 20 years. They always have and always will do anything and all things to tilt matters to their benefit. Like Clempson, never trust them and never turn your back on them. You'll get stabbed.

The hell with them and all of the ACC, including Clempson. Never play any of them unless we are stuck in some NCAA playoff or bowl where we have no
choice.
If I were the USC AD and someone from the ACC (anyone) phoned me, I would answer only long enough to tell them to never phone again and hang up w/o waiting for any reply.

They treat us with no civility, only in a dismissive manner, as in great contempt. If we played, it would be a no win situation. Losing helps them and if we win, we are suppose to due to the SEC membership. Never help an enemy. The worst thing we could do to them is totally ignore them. That is the best insult and revenge, act as if they do not exist. In the early 1700's we sent hundreds of SC militia and hundreds of SC Indian allies to NC (NC was still a rural and very poor state at that time, still sparsely populated) two different times to save them from being wiped out by large scale Indian attacks there and causing those attacking tribes to flee back to the NY area where they originated. Doubt they have had a kind or neighborly thing to say to us since then.
Brat I grew up with Clemson fans on my fathers side and unc fans on my mothers side and love to beat them both!! Having said that, I think your history is bit off regardless nc is a hot recruiting area for all sports and owning unc could be a huge recruiting tool...

I agree, recruiting against Ga, Fla will always be a dogfight. There is no Sec school in NC, that is a golden opportunity for us.

This. It is a dead rivalry (assuming it ever was one). The school represents a state/colony that was an afterthought to begin with. Hell, their delegation to the Continental Congress couldn't blow its nose without getting Edward Rutledge's permission
