My only beef with Clemson & FSU was what was being written about them headed to the Big-12. I know the two schools probably didn't have any real plans for jumping to that disfunctional conference, but just having all of the buzz coming from their supporters (and in some cases, their school officials). But my beef: don't whine about the ACC's contract if you haven't been holding up your own. Until last year, Clemson hasn't been nationally relevant in 20 years, FSU - 10 years. Have a feeling if both schools were still playing at an elite level, there would have been no discussions about the ACC being worthless & weak, and our television contract would have been significantly higher.
I welcome Clemson (and FSU) raising their game. Everyone needs to win their ACC OOC games (and trust me, that's been VT's biggest weakness - lost at least three bowl games we should have won - UGA, KU & Meeeechigan). Clemson did a great job beating Auburn! Hopefully we'll be able to hold our own against Bama next year - especially if LT returns for his senior year.

You're talkin' a lot, but you're not sayin' anything
When I have nothing to say, my lips are sealed
Say something once, why say it again?"
