The Atlantic Coast Conference's infractions and penalties committee has issued a public reprimand to North Carolina. The reprimand was announced Friday and came a month after the NCAA's infractions committee imposed sanctions on the Tar Heels' football program. Commissioner John Swofford says the ACC's ''balance of academics, athletics and integrity will continue to be the cornerstones'' by which the league operates. The ACC's 12-person committee consists of athletic directors and faculty athletics representatives. It reprimanded the university for its responsibility for the major violations documented in the NCAA report. The NCAA in March gave the Tar Heels' football program a one-year postseason ban, a reduction of 15 scholarships and three years of probation. That capped a nearly 2-year investigation into improper benefits and academic misconduct.
