"I don't think there's any question that taking a look at New York and Madison Square Garden would be very appealing for Atlantic Coast Conference basketball fans -- and even more so now with even more teams in closer proximity," Swofford said. "With that being the media center of the world, so to speak, we'd probably be remiss if we didn't think of it in those terms."
Tranghese: "Every year I go to the tournament, Mike, and it's so good to see the Garden reinvigorated. And now the ACC is talking about having this rotation where they're going to bring their tournament to New York for a year --"
Francesca: "No way."
Tranghese: "Just give me a break."
Francesca: "They're not bringing the ACC tournament to Madison Square Garden. That is never happening."
Tranghese: "You know, Gene DeFillippo of Boston College and John Swofford of the ACC -- I don't think it was their intent, but I found it highly objectionable and I found it disrespectful that on the day Dave Gavitt died they're talking about bringing southern-based teams to Madison Square Garden. Like we're going to go to the Clemson-NC State game. Trust me, Mike, I wanted to throw up when I heard that."
