ACC Commish John Swofford must’ve had fun watching two SEC also-rans dismantle his two ACC title game teams. By rights, the ACC should not have a team in a BCS bowl. They are just not good enough.
Here’s what I wonder about, though. Does the on-the-field reality along with the SEC’s huge — and growing — TV footprint help prod Swofford and Greensboro mafia to think really hard about expanding the ACC? Laugh if you want, but Penn State continues to agitate for another “Eastern” school for the Big Ten. The only place to get one of those is the Big East. Pluck a name from the Big East, all kinds of dominoes start falling. The ACC couldn’t afford to stand pat.
