Correct me if wrong.

Bet Coach Howard knows that situation & possible fact better than any since he was there.

UNC, NC State, UVa, Duke, and Wake Forest were charter members in 1953 along with Clemson. Maryland, and South Carolina were also charter members, who obviously went over to the dark side.

Seems I remember reading this. The two of them started the closed door sessions, and brought in the others?

While Virginia did join the ACC in 1953, they were NOT one

of the original seven charter members. The conference was formed on May 8, 1953, with the seven charter members being Clemson, Maryland, Duke, Wake Forest, South Carolina, North Carolina, and NC State.

Virginia joined on December 4, 1953.

The ACC was formed for two main reasons.

1) Scheduling in the Southern Conference had gotten difficult, with 17 member institutions.

2) Secondly, and the main reason that Clemson and Maryland left the Southern Conference, the Southern Conference had instituted a BAN on any of their members participating in any post season bowl games, beginning in the 1951 season. This was done supposedly because of some financial scandals, or gambling issues with bowl games.

Clemson and Maryland had gotten bowl invitations at the end of the 1951 season, and, in defiance of the league moratorium, played in those games. This resulted in both schools being suspended from the conference for the 1952 football season, and none of their games in 1952 were counted as conference games. The new ACC adopted the policy that all their member institutions would be allowed to play in bowl games, from the outset in 1953.
