    The dumbest move Swofford made was letting ND in without the football program. That was the writing on the wall right there. They never should have been allowed to join without the football program coming also. It does nothing for the ACC whatsoever. We are hurting for a better football league and he allows that BS.

    The SEC would be after UNC and either UVA or VA Tech.

    State is more of a Conference USA type of team.

    old orange county criminal college, a.k.a. unc, would fit right in with the SEC boys. there, no one would care if ALL 85 of your football players were academic exceptions rather than the 53 you let in the past five years.and you could cheat all you wished in fball AND bball, much like you're doing now

    I think that everyone should start at this entry and look backwards. If half of the people that commented before me graduated from any nc system college all of our players should be ineligible and every conference that can escape this third grade nonsense should run like hell.

    BCS is being replaced by a 4 team playoff. 1 team will be invited by one of the 4 super conferences...SEC, Big 10, Big 12 and Pac 10. Where does this leave the ACC and Big East or any other conference? ACC could have invited more teams to make 16 and rework a football TV contract. Remember, football is where the money is.
    The ACC will remain but will not be as sucessful as it once was. I blame the commish for the failure.
    Having a charter member leave your conference is about as bad as it gets.

    Question is...Will UNC be left holding the bag? or will they see the future and bolt to one of the superconferences?

    Dismal writing. Thanks. VT has still won more ACC Championships in football than the others since 04. Just curious. Why do you hate VT? What did VT do but bring in huge dollars to the ACC? They (WE) have the best traveling fans in the entire ACC in football. You were OK until you mentioned VT. Happy trails from a Hokie. BTW. I used to know a Janice Davis from Stokes County a few years ago.

    the previous dream was preserving the ACC tradition.

    state college's "tradition" has been to lose roughly two games to every one they win... View More

    I think I can answer that question.

    It's because that one out of whatever is so much fun watching Heels fans go into destruct mode and, basically, shut up for a couple of days. Sometimes, that is all State fans can hope for. Just the silence for a couple days. :)
