SAYING THANKS: In a letter addressed to ACC fans, Swofford extended his "appreciation to the City of Charlotte following a widely successful 2011 Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship Game." The letter read in part, "As a league, we appreciate the enthusiasm with which the Charlotte community embraced not only the game, but our surrounding events. You provided terrific hospitality and a first-class event for our players, coaches and institutions" (CHARLOTTEOBSERVER.com, 12/4). Charlotte Collegiate Football ran a full-page ad in the Charlotte Observer's sports section yesterday thanking the ACC, its fans and its sponsors for the championship game (THE DAILY).
