I sure hope it's someone from FSU, Clemson, Miami, or VT!

D-Rad should go ahead and start looking for a new basketball coach now I guess.

Why not D-Rad himself?


We don't need a former coot to be the commissioner***

Hopefully it will be someone with no conference affiliation. I know that is a big ask, but it would certainly be more fair.

It needs to be a guy with a strong ACC/Clemson connection. Every other ACC team has had a commissioner!

I nominate Bobby Conrad. Judge Conrad was a great ACC/Clemson basketball player, has a law degree and he's a federal judge. His credentials for impartiality are impeccable. His basketball creditials would make Duke, UNC, Syracuse, Louisville and NC State swoon. K would probably endorse Judge Conrad.

Conrad would be following in the steps of another famous Judge Commissioner, Judge Kenesaw Landis. Landis was a federal judge and the first commissioner of MLB.

If it's got to be a guy with college AD experience, Radakovich, from both GT and Clemson, who has served on the CFP committee is an obvious choice.

Next question.


Condi Rice

I have always been pretty impressed with her. She has already served on the CFP committee, has no affiliation with the ACC that I am aware of, and checks several important diversity boxes. At 65, age could be an issue, but maybe she could serve for 10 years or so.

I like to see UNC AD Bubba Cunningham get the position. He's done a great job improving UNC's facilities during his tenure. I think he'd be a great choice.

fraud? Swooford was the AD during that time and he has NEVER had to answer for it.Any other school would have had the the maximum penalty. Clemson should have demanded penalties on them.

The new ACC Commissioner should be an individual with zero affiliation at any time with any ACC school.
For too many years the conference has had athletic oversight presided over by a top person with previous ties to at least one ACC school. That needs to be corrected with the next commissioner.

Just kidding...how about Sir Charles Barkley? Could be a fun ride.

Or maybe even better...let's hire Nick Saban as commish!

UNC here despite the user name. Two names that should get a lot of support, Dan Radakovich and Bernie McGlade. Personally, I prefer Radakovich because he's a football guy. Both are well qualified.

Silly question - who makes the selection? To whom does the ACC commissioner answer?

I'll make a prediction. (Cynical, based on living in Florida and being constantly reminded of the Tobacco Road influence on the entire conference.)

After doing a nationwide search the ACC will announce that the best candidate for the job is a minority (female, African American, or both) with close ties to UNC, Duke, NCSU or Wake.

Early favorites for the job appear to be:

Shane Lyons - WVA AD

Bernadette McGlade - A10 Commissioner

Michael Kelly - South Florida AD

Dan Radakovich

The first three all worked in the ACC office at one time.

I favor D Rad due to his strong football leanings.

Bernadette would be the first female commissioner to head a P5 league. The best part is that she has two UNC degrees!


plus I bet she smells nice

How many fake courses did she take to "earn" those 2 degrees from UNCheat?
