Bob Ryan's covered hoops longer than most of us (except for orez and lunch) have been alive. He's pretty plugged in.

South Carolina should have never left the ACC. I've seen different stories but I think Clemson had also agreed to leave but changed their mind at the last minute and stayed.

for basketball? fine, i see that since the ACC has always been a great basketball conference. In literally every other sport it has been far more advantageous to be in the SEC. i would never switch, and this is as a bottom dweller for 85% of my lifetime in most sports.


Bob Ryan is fucking wrong. Smart Sexy Yokel is correct.


I'm not sure there is any straightforward right or wrong answer.

Frank McGuire and Paul Dietzel felt like they were poised for a long run of success in basketball and football in the early 70s, and UNC and Duke lobbied the ACC to really fuck with their ability to recruit. As a reaction, South Carolina made a verbal agreement with Clemson to leave the ACC and be a package deal in any future conference realignment. South Carolina actually left. Clemson thought it was just a bluff and stayed. Without conference affiliation, strange scheduling quirks and limited television exposure, McGuire and Dietzel eventually found it difficult to recruit and both were fired without having reached the national level success they thought they would. Revenue and exposure dropped and South Carolina's athletics spent the next 20 years mostly fucking around with brief, positive football blips here and there.

The only real positive is that as a football independent and part of the cobbled together metro conference, we were able to easily jump into the SEC when they expanded. Which has been its own double-edged sword. Great for revenue and exposure. But we were like a homeless person being pulled right off the street and being asked to work in a professional office. To say we were unprepared for the SEC would be an understatement.

There's still a lot of people who think South Carolina leaving the ACC was a mistake, but blame UNC and Duke for forcing South Carolina out. There was legit bad blood between the basketball programs for years. I think we've only scheduled UNC 4 or 5 times and Duke once since 1971. And, of course, fuck Clemson.

Getting to the SEC has been great for the school, but if you asked people in 1981 if leaving the ACC was a good idea, most everyone would probably have said it was a major fuck up.

Nothing like a deep run through the tourney and a spot in the final four only to win 11 games the next year. :oops: :oops: :oops:
