NCAA investigation looms over ACC kickoff

There surely hasn’t been any shortage of news around the ACC over the past few months. And not all of it was bad: the league recently announced a new broadcast package for football and men’s basketball that will be worth $1.86 billion from ESPN over 12 years, doubling the conference’s TV revenue.

But most of the attention lately has focused on the NCAA investigation at North Carolina into whether two players received improper benefits from agents. With similar probes popping up at several Southeastern Conference schools, the issue of athletes’ involvement with agents quickly turned into the hot-button topic du jour in college sports.
