Swofford said the ACC will not do extra punishments for schools anymore.

ACC commissioner John Swofford discussed various topics on Wednesday afternoon as part of Basketball Media Day including answering a question about Clemson's extra ACC punishment in 1982.

The NCAA placed the 1982 Clemson football program on probation for a 2-year period to include the 1983 and 1984 seasons, but the ACC imposed an extra year on top of the NCAA's decision.

"Well, first of all, I didn't advocate [punishment] in 1982," Swofford said. "That was a situation at that point in time where even if I had, I don't think anybody would have listened to me, because I was the rookie in the room. But that was a situation and a time when the conference, through the faculty athletic representatives and the presidents would take a look at every NCAA sanction that came down. Not that -- again, not that there were very many, and decide whether the conference should add to that."

Swofford went on to say that the ACC no longer give extra punishments to schools that would be independent of what the NCAA decides.

"We no longer do that in the Atlantic Coast Conference," Swofford said. "The presidents decided that that wasn't something they wanted on the books any longer, that they would accept whatever the NCAA sanctions were and would not take those sanctions any further."
