ACC: 'Unusual Circumstances' Have Affected Completion Of 2012 Football Schedule

In a press release Thursday, the ACC indicated they understood fan's frustrations with the delay in the release of the 2012 football schedule, but things beyond their control, i.e. conference realignment, have made finalizing the schedule difficult:

We at the Atlantic Coast Conference realize that there's tremendous anticipation for the release of the 2012 ACC Football schedule. The conference office and member institutions are equally in anticipation and are taking steps to expedite finding appropriate solutions. As has been documented, there are a number of unusual circumstances beyond the control of the ACC and its member schools that have directly impacted a number of our school's nonconference schedules, which in turn effects the development and completion of the overall schedule. Please know that all parties are working diligently and we appreciate everyone's continued patience.

But while fellow Big East refugee West Virginia paid a huge settlement with the conference in order to join the Big 12 for the 2012 season, it doesn't appear right now that either Pittsburgh or Syracuse will be making a similar jump to the ACC this season.
