Most likely due to your (and my) uncertainty about where the conference itself will be in 10 years. The last decade has been a conference chess match (cue al groin)and its only escalated but its hard to say if the ACC is poised to make a big splash (ie ND) and enjoy stability or ready to come apart at the seams within a couple years. Once we know the outcome it will be easier to see/know if he was shrewd or a part of the head in the sand fools that is the basketball lovin carolina ACC mafia. The story isnt fully written so its hard to know which way to fall on the guy. Granted being the head of the ACC (a basketball centric league with an inordinate amount of small private schools) was not the best hand to draw in terms of the big league commissioner posts in the NCAA with football being the cash cow.

Does anyone else experience this phenomenon? I call it "swoffording" -- the act of being unable to come to a conclusion regarding a topic, despite having plenty of data, history, and anecdotal evidence.
