ESPN Debate: What happens to ACC, Big East?
From Heather Dinich of ESPN:
HD: I’m buying a new GPS system to find my way through the state of Texas, AA. Never been. Don’t know if I should fly into Dallas or Houston, but I was thinking of calling FSU Board of Trustees chairman Andy Haggard, who appears so eager to get to Big 12 country he may as well give the Longhorns his resume. Look, the ACC isn’t worried about anyone getting poached. Nobody has $20 million to give to Greensboro to leave the ACC, and right now, no offers are on the table. I believe they call it unrequited love. If there’s anything ACC officials should be worried about, it’s that both Clemson and Florida State have said publicly that they would even entertain the notion of leaving the conference. I understand that each school has to look out for its own interests, I’m just not convinced that any school in the ACC would fare better in another conference. So far, this has all been a lot of talk and speculation that all snowballed from Haggard's ill-informed comments a month ago. Now, with that all being said, who knows what the future holds or what officials in any conference are saying behind closed doors? All I know is the ACC shouldn’t be nearly as concerned as the Big East. What does the future hold for those guys? Is there any future at all?
