THE RIGHT CALL: In Raleigh, Luke DeCock writes that "in the end, Dick Baddour did the right thing" for the school. DeCock: "When he had no option but to step aside, he went willingly, if sadly. ... No one ever doubted Baddour's loyalty and devotion to UNC." Baddour's departure is an "indirect consequence of the football scandal, not a reaction to it." In his 14 years as AD, UNC teams "won 13 national titles and 63 ACC championships," and facilities in "nearly every sport saw upgrades." But his legacy "will be mixed because his hiring record ... was hit or miss" (Raleigh NEWS & OBSERVER, 7/29).
