I guess I am a satanist now…wtf?
Anyhow ClemScott I don’t know if you saw my post from Larry Williams who wrote the new book about Danny Ford where he was interviewed by ACCSports.com? He said there is NO evidence that John Swofford had anything to do with Clemson getting extra sanctions back in the 80s. Even Danny Ford said Swofford had nothing to do with it.
Some internet troll started all that stuff…kind of like the Big 12 crap the others have bought into.
I am pretty sure I haven’t mention that urban legend about Swofford. For a period of time I bought into the disinformation, but I an past that issue. I personally don’t like him because I think up until some of his recent successes, he has not been good. I think bad choices were made in conference expansion going back to when Boston College entered the league. I further think Syracuse and Pitt do not help the ACC Football brand, which is what the money is all about and finally this 9 game conference schedule is an aberration. Our officiating as an overall league is horrible and it is safe to assume that his UNC connections will always affect his decisions on some level.
I can give a guy credit for doing a few right things and still not approve of overall performance. Now I think if he gets proactive and deals with the current internal issues at hand the opinion of him will change, Sure, Clemson fans don’t care for Swofford because of some bad intel, but what is your excuse for FSU fans and other fans around the league? The same reason UNC fans are loyal to Swofford are the same reason he is bad for the ACC. We need someone from the outside as a commissioner.
