Excuse me FSU and clemson pressured acc on the selection


After maryland left, clemson and FSU was not enthralled about having a UCONN or NAVY in the conference. NO Football value, and they were inferring They recommended Louisville. Also, FSU advised they were not interested in considering Central FLa or South Fla. They inferred if ACC continued to pursue others like that, they would be looking elsewhere (OF COURSE this is NOT in any official records)

UNC, DUKE, STATE, WAKE UVA had no interest in WVU and WVU already signed their Grant of rights to Big 12.

So really what ACC choice did they have and at the time louisville was hot.
