The ACC sent this to my inbox a few minutes ago. It's a joint statement from the university presidents of the ACC in support of the future of the conference.
"We, the undersigned presidents of the Atlantic Coast Conference, wish to express our commitment to preserve and protect the future of our outstanding league. We want to be clear that the speculation about ACC schools in negotiations or considering alternatives to the ACC are totally false.
"The presidents of the ACC are united in our commitment to a strong and enduring conference. The ACC has long been a leader in intercollegiate athletics, both academically and athletically, and the constitution of our existing and future member schools will maintain the ACC's position as one of the nation's premier conferences."
This is the exact opposite of what I've been told, and luckily, it's meaningless. I was told that president Barron is now much more aware of the potential pitfalls of remaining in the ACC.
