I call BS.
The Big East did this right before they fell apart.
And so, the council of ACC presidents can lick taint. Respectfully.

"It's not the SEC conference vs. the ACC conference," "It's Florida State vs. Auburn." --Lamarcus Joyner
Doesn't mean much. It isn't like it is a grant of rights. Just a last hope of swofford.
So this is like the dreaded "vote of confidence" for a coach from an owner right before he gets canned?
The fact that they even felt the need to do this means something big is going on.

of course you're gonna "agree" with it. Why would you openly say "oh we're leaving"
Does. Not. Matter.
Exactly, oft used tactic. Lull them to sleep, then slip the knife into their ribs when their nodding off. Better have your ducks in a row though. Swofford is vindictive and husbands his power with an iron fist. Let see if there is any weight in Barron's yabrbals, or if he is just a follower. Some are ya know.
LMAO...what does one guy not have that everyone else does?
Did all members of the counsel of ACC presidents meet for three days to discuss the draft of this BS letter. including 3 days 2 nights stay and 2 rounds of golf plus spa package for the Mrs.
Give me a f-ing break what is the point. Such a waste of time for such educated men and Shalalala
Life is good. Now lets go win another championship.
Umm...a football team in the conference?
Mr. James Barker
I thought that at first, but there are two Fr. instead of Dr.
Went with the fact the all play ACC football except for Notre Dame, so they'll sign anything as it doesn't impact their big money maker.

I don't know. What? I see 2 Fathers. LOL
I would bet that both of those Fathers has a PhD.
Yep, you would think Clemson would give the guy an honorary degree.
He has 3 honorary doctorates.
Yea, reeks of desperation that they have to come out and say this. If things were really that strong and great there'd be no need for this public display, they could simply inform each other through back channels that there was nothing to worry about.
Pretty pathetic, honestly. Makes me .
We stay in this schitthook conference then do not be upset when FSU permanently becomes a mid-tier program.
