In general, we talked about athletics, but we called an executive session and we talked about the ACC contract and the television contract. We did talk about that in great detail. We talked about the general status of conferences right now, and at the very end we talked about tuition and fees for the upcoming school year. Those were the various subjects." We tried to separate the facts from the rumors. This board is very committed to Clemson athletics and Clemson sports. We want Clemson teams to be the best they can be. We are very interested in a football program that is excelling at a high level, and we would consider, as we should, any viable option from any conference if we received any. We have not received any. In the meantime we are committed to working to make the ACC the strongest conference possible. We took no votes and took no action, we just had a general discussion about the lay of the land." If we were contacted by a conference, we would obviously listen to what they had to say. And then we would make a reasonable decision. We aren’t seeking that, and we aren’t making any overtures about that. I think we have a responsibility to consider any viable component that would come our way. But we haven’t been contacted by anybody. We just want Clemson athletics to be the best they can be. This board is committed to Clemson athletics."

Wilkins comments following BOT meeting. Nothing said here should be unexpected from a lawyer and former SC House Speaker. I know they did not vote on an offer because no offer has yet come, but they did discuss the financial situation of the contracts and affects of travel. Wait until after the next BCS meeting, I'd be surprised if anything official happened before that time. It is also my understanding that TCU and WV do not get full voting rights until the end of June in the Big XII. Oliver Luck may yet get his wish of toppling Swofford for thumbing his nose at WVU. It is my opinion that if an offer comes, Clemson will take it.
