North Carolina might slowly be taking over as dumbest state in the Union
The North Carolina house drafted a bill that would force UNC and NC state to leave the ACC if the conference bans the state from hosting championship games ever again. I think that it’s in an effort to bring up news again that absolutely no one was talking about since the bathroom bill was taken out already.

Duke would not be affected because they don’t receive any funding from the state.
This makes no sense to me in any way. The state of North Carolina did this to themselves with voting in a dumb bill that they should have known would have bad consequences. The state lost hundreds of millions of dollars already and if they actually removed UNC from the ACC they would lose hundreds more. Now if they vote this bill into law which is very unlikely to happen it would destroy the economy of the state.
The bill would actually affect about 16 schools in North Carolina. From App state, Charlotte, and UNC Willmington would all be affected if their conferences boycotted North Carolina. If you read the bill it’s pretty hilarious how ridiculous it would make them look. If a conference boycotts the state of North Carolina the school would ” prohibit extending any grant of media rights”. That means that no media could cover their games either on TV or print I’m guessing. It could last up to five years.
That would be to the tune of $30 million dollars a year that ACC schools would be missing out on. This is the ultimate sign of some really butthurt people. I actually love seeing this and how it plays out. The names of these people who put this bill forward should immediately go public for roasting.
North Carolina just seems to want to dig themselves a hole that is even deeper I guess.
