ACC commissioner John Swofford: "We'll continue to be mindful of the collegiate landscape and what's best for the ACC and its member institutions. With that said, I've received no indication from any of our 12 presidents that they have any intention of being affiliated with any conference other than the ACC."
Florida State president Eric Barron: "There has been no contact on this topic. None. I think the blogosphere is having fun."
Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher: "There's no offer on the table. I have not spoken to anybody about it. We love the ACC. We love the conference we're in."
