    You should be happy he negotiated the worst network deal of the P5 conferences. He added schools that brought little to no value and allowed other schools to leave (although no is going to miss Maryland).

    If it weren't for Clemson the ACC would be the worst P5 football conference right now.

    Is Mike Slive the greatest conference commissioner of all time?

    This clown doesn't deserve to even be called a commish. Slive probably is best commish there has been

    Having Clemson doesn't exclude the ACC from being the worst P5 conference. It actually makes it more remarkable that they are.

    he was forced to take Virginia Tech. the original plan was to take Miami, Boston College and Syracuse. The Virginia state government said that UVa was going to be a no on expansion, which would have ended any talks of expanding at all, if Virginia Tech wasn't included in the expansion plans.

    Swofford can also piss off for putting the ACC tournament in Brooklyn.

    Why wait? Go now, you worthless bastard.






    Oh he's ensured that Chad and Raycom will continue to milk ACC schools by putting Raycom Sports in charge of the ACC Digital Network. All those highlight videos you see on Youtube and Twitter? We are paying Raycom and Tarhole Johnny's useless whelp to do them.

    A pencil and a glass of milk would be an improvement.

    Well it's either Duke's or NC State's turn to have someone be named president of the country club. Swofford's predecessor was a former UVA AD, the one before that was a former Maryland athlete, and the first commissioner was a former Wake Forest AD.
