People have been particularly vocal these days about recent decisions made at UNC.
In the few weeks that I’ve been back in Chapel Hill, several letters and emails have come across my desk from disgruntled alumni who want nothing more than to see former head football coach Butch Davis back at the helm.
Some have decided to stop supporting UNC financially, unsure how they can continue to back a university whose chancellor they say made a poor decision so close to kickoff.
Others wholeheartedly support Chancellor Holden Thorp’s decision to fire Davis, touting it as a necessary move to get the football program and the University back on track.
Most have found a place somewhere in the middle, disagreeing with parts of the decision-making process while acknowledging that the situation is likely more complex than it seems.
I say this to bring you a not-so-novel insight: No matter how a situation is handled, it’s going to evoke reactions from all sides.
Need more proof? Just check out the debate about the merits of cargo shorts still raging in the online comments section on The Daily Tar Heel’s website.
No matter the situation, we here at the DTH thrive on what you have to say. It doesn’t matter where you fall on a given issue, just that you’ve taken the time to study up and form your own opinion.
Giving you the information that allows you to develop those opinions is where I come in this year.
