ACC Short-changing - an annual spring tradition

Ran across this tidbit that Tech fans probably remember pretty well. This from the former committee chairman Bob Frederick:

Asked to name the source of the toughest grilling he received as chairman of the selection committee, Frederick said, “I don’t remember, probably about the ACC with Billy (Packer, or as Al McGuire used to spell his name: P-A-C-C-K-E-R).”

Then Frederick remembered, and the grilling was inspired by an ACC team being left out: “Georgia Tech. I remember calling Bobby Cremins and talking to him about it. He was great. He didn’t agree, and he still doesn’t, but he was great about it.”
