Doyel - Florida State was supposed to save ACC, but instead it's killing it

25

Doyel uses the typical national-sportswriter-beat-wake-first nonsense to slam FSU for potentially leaving the ACC for the B12. But then he veers from the standard fact-devoid column into uncharted waters: - TCU (TCU!!) is one of the reasons FSU would remain in "relative mediocrity" if we go to the B12 - He seems to believe Swofford has the acumen to do something about this: "He's sneaky, he's ruthless, and he has no conscience. In other words, he's "a consensus builder." Wouldn't stun me if Swofford manages to save the ACC, break free from the BCS and join OPEC. Swofford is that good. Or bad. Both." -FSU is "coming back slowly" under CJF. Same guy who took the offense from mid-60s to top 10. Same program that has improved from 25th in 2009 (with #1 O and #99 D) to 15th in 2010 to 8th in 2011. And has as many wins as all but 12 BCS programs in last 2 years. He is, of course, correct that FSU and Clemson leaving will kill the ACC.
