ACC commish Jim Phillips digs in as college sports gap grows

CHARLOTTE — Jim Phillips is holding on to the string, gripping it as tightly as ever as the balloon drifts toward the heavens.

“If we take the path that it’s only going to be about football and basketball, shame on us,” Phillips, the ACC commissioner, said before hundreds of reporters at his league’s media days Wednesday.
