Ira Schoffel tells us that "It has been four years since Florida State and Miami were this highly regarded by the Atlantic Coast Conference media. Four long years." "When you are talking about two programs that have tradition and history of success on a national level as Miami and FSU -- and then consequently the brands that they enjoy in college football -- there's no question that when they are strong, our league is perceived as being stronger as a whole," ACC Commissioner John Swofford said. "So the stronger those two programs become, because of their tradition and history and brand, the better perceived the ACC will be from a football standpoint."
