If he would have made the correct moves a few years ago Clemson and FSU would not want to leave. If he had gotten several quality schools to join before everyone was in the BIG and SEC. He could have renegotiated the ESPN contract for enough money to keep the conference competitive.

Lutz? What schools ("teams"??)? Texas? No chance.

Ok? No chance. USC? No chance? UCLA? No chance. Same with Oregon and UW.

Time to start paying attention again to realignment moves. Josh Pate starting to talk as well.

I have a real issue with Pate's article when he pretends that the media has some sort of code of ethics. Everyone knows they will print it if it will draw readers.

1) Either ND joins are no thanks
2) Could have added WV
3) Penn State was also out there for years before joining Big
ACC did not showcase border war matchups like Clemson vs UNCheat or VT or even Miami annually. Lots could have been done but vision and leadership was lacking.

still the issue of much less alumni bases.

Penn St. would have been huge though. They joined the Big in 1990.

Why don't you specify what the right moves were supposed to be...with folks as smart as you we are sure that within the framework of our contract with ESPN you could have gotten us to 50million per year in an instant...if you can't more butts in the seats with major schools in PA. & NY, Virginia and North Carolina and got idiots off the bikini beaches of S Florida and into the hottest ugliest stadium in football you are not going to change the paradigm! You surely could make a silk purse out of a sows ear...let's hear it!

Swofford created this mess. But he got his son those TV rights. I think he should be brought in for questioning to see if any shady things were going on.

Suppose The ACC had beaten the SEC to the punch on Texas and Oklahoma. Then the ESPN contract could have been renegotiated and pressure put on ND for full membership.
Where would the ACC be sitting right now? Maybe instead of being a bottom feeder as far as money, it could be right in there with the P2.
But instead Jim Phillips set on his hands doing nothing and now attacks Clemson and FSU for wanting out. But it is what it is now and the only thing Clemson can do is leave.

I don’t think there would’ve been a real shot at getting OK and Texas but USC and UCLA would’ve been better adds than Stanford and Cal.

Clemson & FSWTC have been profiting from that contract for 10 years and signed it without a whimper from all these brilliant FSU and Clemson lawyers...Swofford did not sign it for them and the Raycom deal for 4th tier rights had nothing to do with any of this! Why just now is crying and moaning and wanting out emerge...green eyed monster is no reason to break a contract! How would he fight when FSU could not keep or hire a good coach...that's his fault as well!

Are you kidding...Texas and Okies were the Big12...didn't need to start one, they owned one...Nebraska and Colorado left back in the day cause they could not beat Okie...kinda like ARk and TX in the SWC...envy often leads to downfall...where are Neb and ARK now...suck egg dogs in someone else's conference making 'BIG' money and beating few...no beach in Nebraska, just corn. Nothing in Arkansas!

WVU, Ok St., TCU, Houston, would have all been better options than the absolute worst decision a human being in his position could have made with Stanford , Cal, SMU. Clemson should be able to void the contract just out of pure negligence

I have been saying this for more than two years. But I had OK St, Texas tech( to get into Texas) Arizona St, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, WV. Everyone trashes SMU but I think they can be a good school being in a better conference then they were.

What's even worse is that wus let Sankey and Petitti take the biggest shares of Playoff money when Clemson and FSU have accounted for more Football Natty's than the Big 10 in the last 10 years (2013-23).

He’s fighting harder for his job and his fat salary than he is for the schools he’s supposed to work for and represent

He’s just dragging this out this gravy train as long as he can.

It’s really quite simple. He inherited a weak hand so there was not a move he could have made to fix the issue. We saw the PAC12 take the aggressive route and implode. Perhaps he could have pushed a revenue split based on TV ratings but the lesser schools would never agree to take a pay cut. He did what he could but none of the options would have kept FSU and Clemson from leaving.

I believe he would be willing to settle but wants to wait until after ESPN extends the current deal until 2035. Of course if they don’t extend then things will blow up and all bets are off

Ole Jimmy should have fined FSU for letting Jimbo go to A&M, then hiring idiot replacement coaches,then adding Novella to the mix...his idea is to hire mercenaries who quit when going gets rough...has to be Jimmies fault...none of the geniuses at FSU who signed the GOR would have screwed up the coaching staff as well! Everyone else is to blame but us and we must get out of the conference ASAP so as not to do something so stupid again!

He is still fighting for the ACC against two spoiled, petulant children who are so self absorbed that they can only think of a few more $...when we move on we are gone for 'good'...ask Broyles and Arkansas fans...but we will make work this time cause Bama and Auburn and LSU and Jawja really care about us...another of the 3 biggest lies! But we are smarter than all the others...worked great for PSU!
