ACC Finds Solid Ground In Unstable Environment

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- The Atlantic Coast Conference has emerged as an attractive football conference.

After a shaky start in conference realignment roulette, the basketball-rich ACC rebounded and became the first power conference to reach 14 teams.

That seemed to be an unlikely scenario a few weeks ago when the Southeastern Conference looked like it might snatch up one -- or more -- ACC schools. Instead of losing teams, the ACC added two with the possibility of adding two more at some point.

While it looks like an upset -- the ACC is not known for its football prowess and nearly a quarter of the league is mired in NCAA scandals -- the ACC obviously is appealing. With at least 10 schools making inquiries about joining, it has cemented a place in superconference discussions.
