TDP Interview questions


May 21, 2012, 10:02 AM

I just confirmed that our 1:30 meeeting is still on, but we don't have a lot of time. I obviously have a list of questions, but want your input as well. Fire away with questions you think should be asked.

good first question: Is Clemson leaving the ACC?


May 21, 2012, 10:09 AM

I think I know what his answer will be, but it's a good way to open up for the other questions.

What, if any, positive remarks do you have about the ACC coming out of last weeks meetings?

Was anything done during those meetings to enhance the commitment to football by other conference members? Including a change (even if temporary) in the revenue sharing model we currently utilize.

Out of all the member schools in the ACC, how many are in support of new leadership in the office of the ACC? Are we one of them? Why not?

What is your opinion of the Big12/SEC agreement last week? And do you view it the same way many of the fans do, in that it marginalizes the ACC as a football conference?

What type of urgency do you see us having in terms of proactively addressing the Big12 expansion, and potential ACC demise?

Well thought out!***

During the Bowden era, you made it clear when there was a large buyout amount in the contract that there were funds available to cover any buyout of any Clemson coach. Now that the ACC has increased the buyout for leaving the conference to $20 Million, does Clemson have a source of these funds IF it ever became necessary?

given the recent Big12/SEC development as well as the TV contracts signed by these conferences?

Will this set Clemson back by being affiliated with a conference who will guaruntee 5-10 million a year less than many of our rival schools?

What can/will Clemson do to ensure the opportunity remains to acheive another national college football title?

How can the Big 12 & SEC make an agreement like they di without the NCAA's approval? And is it possible that the NCAA would allow a playoff such as this with just 4 conferences involved cutting out so many important schools?

First of all, I know that David Hood will come up with better questions than I will. He is one of the better Clemson beat writers that doesn't just print the press release. I am looking forward to reading the article.

For what it is worth, this is my list of questions for TDP:

1. Do you have knowledge of anyone representing Clemson (3rd party or otherwise) discussing membership with the Big 12?

2. If the ACC loses FSU to another conference, will Clemson consider other options as well?

3. What order would you rank the ACC, SEC, and Big 12 with regards to compatibility with the athletic goals of Clemson University?

4. Do you believe that the ACC broadcast deal was a good deal for Clemson compared to the deals that the SEC, B1G 10, and Pac 12 will have?

5. Hypothetically, if Clemson were in the Big 12 what kind of revenue would you expect from Clemson's 3rd tier rights?

6. Is Clemson or anyone acting on Clemson's behalf negotiating Binding TV rights with any conference?

7. Clemson fans are concerned that with the big 12/SEC championship bowl and the proposed 4 team BCS playoff, that the ACC could become less relevant in terms of football. Do you share these concerns?
