For that reason alone he should be hated. Backwards ass, stuck in the 1950's conference.

Clemson could easily have gone down with that ship though.

We had a lifeline. It wouldn't have been optimal but we would have been with like-minded institutions.

You mean the Big 12? Not much of a lifeline if the Pac-16 had also happened. And I doubt the SEC would have taken Clemson in when the "marketz" mindset was in vogue.

The Pac16 was never going to happen. There's a reason why the Texas & Oklahoma schools all bailed from the WAC and MWC...because the needed eyeballs are in the east. Western based conferences are at a disadvantage because of the time zone differences and they always will be.

With a solidified eastern flank the Big XII schools wouldn't have wanderings eyes.

In regards to the idea that Swofford bungled expansion I'd say he did pretty well with what he had to work with. It's not like his core was Florida, Georgia, and Alabama.

The adds that the ACC has made have been quality. Miami hasn't been its old self in awhile but last season they seemed to be returning to form. Expansion schools Florida St, Miami, VT, and Louisville are better football brands than the original ACC, aside from Clemson. Even BC had some good years since joining and Pitt and Cuse were a means to an ends that helped keep the league afloat.

I have never heard or seen written anywhere that said that Swofford preferred UConn to Louisville.
Do you have a link that would confirm or at least lend credence to your accusation?
