LOL what kind of fool do you think I am!
“Swofford was at one time behind an ACC attempt to add to NCAA sanctions against Clemson, back-in-the-day. It failed as I recall but several board members at Clemson have long memories and detest Swofford for this. As well this is a general anger from Clemson over adding Pitt and ‘Cuse while snubbing WVU and thus weakening the revenue potential of the conference.
All the smug pro-ACC trolls who materialized on our board a couple months back….have been lying through their anuses (as usual) about Clemson wanting to stay in the ACC. Swofford asked for this meet in a desperate attempt to keep football-centric schools on-board. Clemson is every bit as pissed as FSU over the crappy TV contract negotiated by Swofford. Swofford ASKED to appear at this gathering….think about it…that is significant.
My guess: the outcome of this meeting will go a long way to determining whether the ACC gets picked apart in the near future…or not. Long-term the strong conferences will come after ACC teams IMO. They will get pretty much who they want, barring some extraordinary concessions by the conference (unequal revenue sharing, etc.) And maybe adding ND to ALL-SPORTS (yeah good luck with that).
Doc Holliday will love this analogy but this is showdown time in the OK corral. Odds are the ACC does not come out of this alive…though death may come slowly and painfully over time.”
