Look back at ACC alignment shows flaws

An e-mail recently obtained by The Orlando Sentinel put an interesting face on a problem that has hounded the Atlantic Coast Conference since it finally realized a league football championship game is more necessity than luxury.
“Please do what you can to realign the conference,” the e-mail from Seminole Boosters, Inc., president Andy Miller read. “Put Georgia Tech in (the Atlantic) Division. Give (the Coastal Division) Maryland.”
The recipient was Randy Spetman. It was food for thought for the FSU athletic director as he prepared to join his peers at the Amelia Island ACC spring meetings last week.
It could’ve said “we’ve done what we can to malign the conference, do what you can to realign the conference.”
