Vote: The future of the ACC
May, 29, 2012

The only thing we know for certain right now is that both Florida State and Clemson have made it clear that should another conference come calling, they’d be willing to listen. The grass isn’t always greener, though. Beano Cook said on the latest ESPNU college football podcast that Clemson would “make a disastrous move” should it decide to leave the ACC.
It’s obviously in the best interest of the conference for the league to stay intact, but every school has to make its own decisions.
That’s just a guess, plain and simple.
Everyone seems to be forgetting that it now costs ACC schools between $20-25 million to leave the conference. Aren’t Florida State’s financial woes one of the main reasons fans are ready to bolt?
I’m curious to see what you think the future of the ACC will be. Do you really believe Florida State and Clemson, two of the ACC’s premier programs, would leave the conference? Do you think they should? What's in store for the ACC? Cast your votes now.
