Taking Action on Conference Realignment- Contact Information for Fans

UPDATE- With recent rumors  that UNC, GT, UVA and FSU are leaving, please focus on those schools, Jim Delany, John Swofford and ESPN if you are going to contact someone on this list. Unfortunately, I could not find email addresses for John Swofford, Jim Delany and John Skipper. If you DO find them, please post them to the comments section, and I will edit this post. It appears that the greatest need can be found with these parties. We deserve a say in this too. This is OUR conference. I’ve included my original message below. DON’T FORGET TO SIGN THE PETITION ON CHANGE.ORG.

Thank you to everyone who has provided feedback on my latest article regarding conference realignment. I really appreciate it, and this type of discussion is why I enjoy Atlantic Coast Confidential so much. While I plan discuss issues such as television ratings and academics in the near future, I wanted to provide everyone with a comprehensive list of individuals with a significant stake in the ACC’s future.   While this is all public information, please respect the time and position of these individuals, if and when contacting them.

I truly believe that the ACC has a bright future in college athletics. Yes, many changes can be, and need to be made, for the league to reach its full potential. But this is why I have provided the information below. Joining another conference is a short-term solution without a long-term vision. While football is driving the flow of money right now, its future is in doubt due to rule changes, governmental intervention and increasing awareness of injuries. Baseball was once America’s past time, but was replaced by football. Ice skating and boxing were once among the most popular sports in the country. If, and of course there are many factors involved, football ceases to be on top, where would you want your school?  Would you want to be geographically and culturally isolated, playing very few of your longtime rivals, or would you like to be in a group based off of common geographic, athletic, academic and social characteristics? No other conference has better media markets, basketball, lacrosse, baseball, soccer and academics than the ACC. Our football is undeniably on the way up. There is more potential in the ACC than any other conference. Please share this with your friends, retweet it, post it on Facebook, or whatever you need to do. By working together, and having our voice heard as fans, I believe that we can make a difference.

  1. You can send emails to the ACC office using this URL:

    http://www.theacc.com/feedback/acc-feedback.html

    I’m not sure who will get it (probably NOT John Swofford, though I’m guessing he will get a count of the number of emails received along with a summary).

  2. Vinnie Saltine on said:

    Good job compiling all of this information. Even if it doesn’t effectuate the change that we hope it does (or more accurately keep things as they are) at the very least, I enjoyed reading through and giggling at some of the names.

    My personal favorites:

    Boston College’s AD: Mr. Bates
    Duke University’s President: Dr. “Dick” Brodhead
    Wake Forest’s President: Dr. N.Hatch (‘Natch).

    Also, UNC really has an AD named “Bubba”? That’s enough evidence for me to know that they are one foot out the conference door…

  3. Yeah, Bubba’s pretty cool. No need to go to the B1G when he can be in a conference with Jimbo and Dabo…Our last AD was actually named Dick too haha
