Big 12 Expansion: Clemson's Dabo Swinney Says School Is '1,000 Percent Committed To ACC'

Clemson head football coach Dabo Swinney might be mathematically challenged, but one thing he’s not is wishy-washy. In recent comments made by Swinney to the media about the long-swirling rumors of potential Big 12 interest on the part of Clemson, Swinney came out with a direct statement of support for the school’s current conference home in the ACC.

"I think there has been a lot of irresponsible blogging and reporting whatever you want to call it," Swinney said. "We live in this world (where) somebody hears something from the guy in the third stall down and it’s like, ‘OK it’s fact.’ It’s so far from reality it’s not even funny. We’re 1,000 percent committed to the ACC."

Swinney also called the move the “worst thing” the school could do, according to Travis Sawchik’s Post & Courier report. Of course, the coach will not have much input one way or the other about this, and he’s supposed to hold the line at this point. Still, when a school is committed at 1,000 percent, well, what else can they do?
