From a UK fan, about history and our programs place in it

Eamonn Brennan wrote an article asking if UCONN could obtain Blue blood status. I wonder how, as UNC fans you all feel about it. I wrote my reply over at ASOB, and as an unquestioned member of this club, does this suggestion offend you? It does me, but it at least made me think about why we deserve the label and why others do not.

I don't really post a lot, but this subject really made me think about why it means something to have that moniker and what it means to water it down.  Like I said before, I would definitely like input from other blue blood fan bases.
