Tommy Bowden discusses a few of his opinions about the differences between the ACC vs the SEC in sports.

"A lot of ACC teams want to be in the SEC on Saturday and in the Ivy Leagues Monday through Friday," Bowden said. "By that I mean public education in the Southeast is not highly rated. You need to have curriculums where players can get in and get eligible and get their degree.

"I'm not sure the ACC presidents understand those intangibles you need. You need all that, but the president has to calm the faculty down. Most of the time, the faculty really don't like it. North Carolina tried it a couple years ago. Didn't work real good."
