ACC Media Days 2012: John Swofford Addresses Media

ACC Commissioner John Swofford addressed the media at ACC Media Days and maintained his stance that the conference had done well at balancing academic and athletic success. However, it still has room for improvement on the football field and earning respect begins with winning non-conference football games.

Last year, the league was 9-16 against BCS conferences and 2-6 in bowl games. The league is 2-13 in BCS bowls since 1998. Given the quality of coaches and teams, there is no reason the ACC can't be more competitive, Swofford said.

This season Georgia Tech's out of conference schedule includes home games against Presbyterian, Middle Tennessee State and BYU. The Yellow Jackets will close out the season on the road in Athens against the Bulldogs.
