So I guess it wasn't Jacksonville's fault after all that no one wanted to see this game.

The ACC deserves the stupidity award for holding these games in areas where there is little natural interest for ACC football. The game should be played in Charlotte permanently. It may have colder weather, but 7 schools are within a 4 hour drive of Charlotte, while at most 2 schools are within a 5 hour drive of Tampa.

I agree with Mike. As a BC fan it is very difficult to get to Tampa on such short notice. I would drive to Charlotte no problem, but if I'm driving to Tampa I'm staying for a week, and with three children that is not an option. ACC needs to think this through, Present set up doesn't work. I vacation in Longboat Key all the time, Tampa is a great spot, but on one weeks notice ? This is tough.

Well, it's obvious when the "genius" [sic] ACC managment set the championship venue (as well as the split of the Florida schools into different divisions) that they planned on it being FSU vs. Miami every year. And, I strongly suspect that FSU and Mr. Bowden wanted it this way; remember the old Metro Conference?- FSU would never agree to make it into a real conference by adding their great fame and wealth to a bunch of bumpkin schools, some of which split off to form the Big East. Now the joke's on FSU and the ACC.
