James Vinson: Eastward ho

Eastward ho

As a 1968 grad of the University of Maryland, I would like to bid a fond, but well deserved, farewell to the ACC. When I was in college, it was always Tobacco Road and the Other Four. Maryland was never really part of the “in crowd.” All those tedious years of the ACC championship in Greensboro – ugh.

Just wait for Florida State, Miami, Virginia Tech and Clemson to jump ship. It will be Tobacco Road and Who? Pittsburgh/Duke? Syracuse/North Carolina? N.C. State/Boston College? The ACC is on the verge of becoming the New Big East.
