THI Newsstand: November 29

Podcast: Does Louisville's move break the Big East for good? - CBSSports.com
'Round and 'round that realignment carousel goes. Wednesday morning brought the news that the ACC would replace Maryland by poaching Louisville from the Big East. Almost all the remaining big Big East schools wanted to get in on the ACC, but it's the Cardinals, who have the best football program, who got the nab. It's Wednesday, so I'm bringing back Jeff Goodman and Gary Parrish to mock the process but also give credit to the ACC for not only staying alive, but improving its situation. As for actual games? We've got that covered, too.

Right now, Cardinals for Terps is all-positive for ACC - Charlotte Observer
For the short term, which is all that matters with college administrators these days, the ACC will be a stronger league now that Louisville will move in from the Big East to replace exiting Maryland. The Cardinals will arrive with appreciably better football and overwhelmingly better basketball than Maryland has or is likely to have during the next two or three years.

Cardinal Primer: What every ACC fan needs to know about Louisville - Charlotte Observer
The rich basketball tradition of the ACC gets a little richer with the addition of the two-time national champion Louisville Cardinals. But it's not all about sports, here are some things you need to know about the city and the conference's newest program.

Thorp: Louisville addition about athletics - ESPN.com
North Carolina chancellor Holden Thorp put it bluntly when asked why the ACC Council of Presidents chose to add Louisville over Cincinnati and UConn. Forget academics.

No-brainer add for ACC, Louisville - ESPN.com
This move was not about TV sets, or TV deals or dollar signs floating in the sky. No. The ACC added Louisville for one reason, and one reason only: football. It was a no-brainer for both sides.

Bullock day-to-day with finger contusion - ESPN.com
North Carolina wing Reggie Bullock is being listed as "day-to-day" because of a contusion of the fingers on his right hand, a team spokesman said in an email Wednesday afternoon.

Batten: Louisiville addition improves ACC - Fayetteville Observer
College sports conferences have been swapping teams like trading cards over the past week. But early Wednesday morning, the Atlantic Coast Conference pulled off yet another deal that, for the time being, ensures its stability.

Heels Outlast No. 15 Ohio State, 57-54 - GoHeels.com
With No. 22 North Carolina trailing No. 15 Ohio State by one late in regulation, Tierra Ruffin-Pratt took the ball from OSU's Darryce Moore and went the distance for a go-ahead layup with just 41 seconds to go. Then she did it again. Ruffin-Pratt scored four of her 11 points in the final minute -- including a stolen in-bounds pass and layup with 27 seconds remaining -- to help UNC past Ohio State, 57-54, Wednesday night in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

UNC forward James Michael McAdoo: We need to work on our camaraderie - Raleigh News & Observer
North Carolina sophomore forward James Michael McAdoo had some telling comments, I think, following the Tar Heels' 83-59 loss here at Indiana on Tuesday night. The game magnified a lot of weaknesses for the Heels: Transition defense, defensive rebounding, offensive execution. The Hoosiers outhustled the Tar Heels, regularly beating them for loose balls, and beating them down the court for easy scoring chances. So when I asked McAdoo afterward to name the one area where UNC needs to improve the most, I expected him to name any of the above. What he said, though, surprised me.

ACC votes to add Louisville - USA Today
University of Louisville President James Ramsey arrived at his office early Wednesday morning. He knew the Atlantic Coast Conference's presidents were holding a conference call that would determine the school's athletics future, and he didn't want to miss a thing.

ACC gets an upgrade with Louisville-for-Maryland trade - Wilmington Star News
The ACC had its choice of candidates to fill the vacancy left when Maryland departed for the Big Ten last week. Wednesday, it chose Louisville over UConn and Cincinnati. The Cardinals became the league's newest full-time member in a unanimous vote of the ACC's Council of Presidents. It's a move that effectively completes a trade that cost the conference one of its charter members and 59 years of tradition, but could ultimately strengthen it both on and off the playing field.

Fedora gave UNC just what it needed - stability - Winston-Salem Journal
The hard times aren't over for North Carolina's football program, but they are starting to ease. Larry Fedora's first season as coach ended last Saturday with a 45-38 victory against Maryland. Fedora guided his team to an 8-4 record and five ACC wins, but NCAA sanctions will keep the Tar Heels out of a bowl game.
