ESPN's first name is E for entertainment not P for promotion. Their programing is and should be based upon anticipated audience appeal. There is no question that in the area of olympic sports UNC's name recognition will attract a bigger following than BC or Clemson or VT.
And it's not ESPN's job to promote VT. It's VT's job to promote VT. We deserve to have VT football on the tube today but we didn't deserve it years ago. Build it and they will come!
