ACC Commissioner John Swofford was asked about the league’s ongoing litigation with the University of Maryland Sunday at the league’s football kickoff media event. The following is a transcription of the interaction, courtesy of TheACC.com…
Q. July 10th was the coordinating day and deadline for Maryland and the ACC to meet with the mediator. Was that deadline met, and
what can you tell us about where that process stands?
JOHN SWOFFORD: David, I’m really not at liberty to respond to your specific question. We generally will not be commenting on that case. It’s still in process, and what I’ve said before is that we wish Maryland well. They were a quality member
of this league for 60 years, and our league feels that it has a responsibility to the Atlantic Coast Conference member institutions to live by our constitution and bylaws as they leave the league. And I’ll leave it at that.
