ACC Freeloaders

Correct me if I’m wrong. My understanding is there is an equal split among all ACC programs for revenue earned by Clemson Football. And that the ACC does not reimburse Clemson for travel and per diem expenses for conference Championship games, and bowl games (typically two per year).

What am I missing?

There is an extra distribution to cover travel expenses

I remember this was one the changes that was made after getting feedback from the teams that participated the first 2 years. Dan Radokovich talked about it (possibly on a podcast, I can't remember for sure).

You're missing the basketball money Clemson has been paid for the last 67 years. You're missing the decade when FSU gave us money from BCS games while we struggled along winning 6-8 games a year. You're missing what Dabo says about playing football in the ACC. Based on the 'freeloader' comment you might be missing roadtrips to Louisville, Boston, Syracuse, Tallahassee, Miami and Atlanta. Most of the 'freeloaders' have nice digs in nice places where a couple in the first bloom of love or an old couple who have been buying season tickets for 40 years can have a great weekend trip and see a nice football game with friends.
