The ACC athletic directors recently held their winter meetings in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. (no football coaches were there), and the group touched on a variety of topics in what was described as a non-agenda meeting. I spoke with ACC commissioner John Swofford on Tuesday for an update on what came out of those meetings.
Here were the highlights, according to Swofford:
* The athletic directors voted to support the Big 12’s proposal to remove NCAA language in current legislation that stipulates a set number of teams or structure as it relates to conference football championship games.
* The conference talked about the upcoming season with Pittsburgh and Syracuse joining the league, and the various league championships and scheduling that will accompany the transition. “I think we’re generally well set for that to take place,” Swofford said.
* Swofford also confirmed that Louisville will play in the Atlantic Division when it begins competition in the 2014 season.
* There were also discussions about the future of the BCS and the Orange Bowl. “Certainly I think there is a great deal of positive feeling about where our league is in terms of the BCS and the Orange Bowl moving forward, and we discussed future bowl affiliations,” Swofford said. “Again, very much in the preliminary stages, but excited about those possibilities in the new grouping."

The ACC supporting the big 12 is just another way to tether us to their sinking ship.
If the big 12 can get championship game money added to a pie only split 10 ways then there is no way in hell they expand.

I continue to be disappointed in just about every decision made by this conference.
That was the first thing I thought of when I read that. Not necessarily that the acc is a sinking ship (very debatable) but that it makes the big 12 less inclined to expand and try and raid the acc in the process.
Yep. It's actually a very smart move by the ACC, but an unfortunate one for FSU (doesn't seem like we're an option anyway).
Exactly what the ACC wanted
Why didn't they just rename the Atlantic to the Football division and the Coastal to the Basketball division while they were at it?
