Just when I thought that conference could not get any more desperate they announce this potential plan:
Desperate measures for a desperate conference.

I don't know how people not watching in Europe helps the ACC.
Sad. Grasping at straw.
Maybe they should explore the idea of having people come to home games
I think its a recruiting angle for them. And I don't really think they should be allowed to do it.
The London hotel desk clerk, upon hearing someone drawl in Blue Ridge twang, "can you change this for me, governor", turns and sees the toothless character out of Deliverance in orange coveralls and a tiger paw beauty mark on his cheek handing him a $2.00 bill with a matching tiger paw stamped on it.
And the desk clerk says,...
How is that different from people not watching in the U.S.? Every time I see a Miami Hurricane home game on TV you can count the fans before the first quarter ends.
Only a few schools can even sell out their home games in that league, so Miami playing Duke in London might actually have MORE fans, just from the novelty of it.
London hotels run about 300 a night...for basic hotels...no taters gonna tate up in der!
Makes sense for them to play games closer to the world's largest supplies of wine and cheese.
C'mon, what have they got to be desperate about?
They just guaranteed that none of their members can jump ship, and they're locked into the Orange Bowl every year.
No, they'll never win a national championship, and they'll be very lucky to even get one of their teams into the new 4-team playoff.
But they're used to football mediocrity; their identity is as a basketball conference.
No need to fly over an ocean to have no one watch their games.
"Those who live in the past are cowards and losers" -- Mike Ditka
When a conference has to have a $50m exit fee, then has to have its members sign over the TV ownership rights followed a week later by plans to "explore" playing games in Europe that reeks of desperation.
There is a CU/France/surrender joke in there somewhere...
They will probably play during halftime of a soccer match in order to make sure crowds are there, plus soccer is huge at UNCheat. Many, if not most Europeans, will not realize that the EZZ plays a second-rate form of "American football." The taters will make Clark Griswold look like a suave, genius onver there. Just think of all of the goofy things that Dilbert will do while in Europe while sight-seeing and during PCs. It will be a boost to our International Business program.
Maybe when Syracuse plays that school in the upstate, Beoheim can find a Chic-fil-a in somewhere in Europe.
Someone please tell those necks that football in Europe is not the same thing as football in America. Then again those ACC pussies might have a chance playing football against a soccer team, just keep Watkins out of Amsterdam..
I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and I am all out of bubble gum.
All of a sudden a little boy walks into the room playing Dueling banjos with his cousin Rufus. The Bell boy is not to be found. The sound of squealing pigs is echoing from the direction of the stairwell. Moments later Ned Beatty's twin brother "Brad Scott" burst out from the stairwell door saying. "Roun em up boys. Beter'n git out of here afor seekurty gets cheer. Wein ain't in Clempson whar we kin git away with plowin new boys. Hey look! Nuk left his mark agin!"

Personally....I think Europe has been through enough over the last century.
Desperation. Europe would care almost as little as the rest of the United States.
I can already see Dabo brushing his teeth with the bidet.
