CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Georgia Tech's Bobby Cremins left with more sighs than tears -- and looked ahead to a date at the beach.

Who is to blame for Georgia Tech's downfall? Yellow Jackets coach Bobby Cremins has taken full responsibility, announcing Friday that he will resign at the end of the season. But others have argued another side. "I feel for Bobby," said Tech assistant Mark Price, who was a starting point guard for Cremins in the mid-1980s. "In some ways, he's a victim of his own success. There were no expectations for this program before Bobby Cremins, but he set a pretty high standard. Now that we've had a couple of years below that, everyone is unhappy.

For North Carolina, it's the most critical stretch run in school history. The Tar Heels (14-9, 5-4 in the Atlantic Coast Conference) are in their worst position this late in a season since 1965-66, the last time they failed to go to either the NCAA or National Invitation tournaments. Mentioning the possibility of missing the NCAAs could be construed as heresy on Tobacco Road, but it's not far-fetched. North Carolina will end its ACC regular-season schedule by playing four of its last seven games on the road.
