And people wonder why I hate this Godforsaken conference.

The difference is Clemson being a baseball power at the time and of recent history while State has not been on that level for quite some time. Not really sure if it would be an advantage for State to play in their "home" gym.

Clemson is about 40 miles from Greenville. Approximately the same distance both UNC and Duke are to Raleigh.

RE: ACC Tournament To Raleigh?
Was this done for the 50th? Then why is 75 so special? In a hypothetical, it would only make sense from a historic perspective if it was played at Reynolds, which on its own, is not even one of the more historic arenas like the Palestra, or Phogg, or Kemper. But playing a conference tournament on someone's campus or home floor in this day and age is absolutely not acceptable. It is bushleague. And Raleigh is no destination, not that Greensboro is either.

Bring this up again in 25 years, when it would still be a dumb idea.

You do realize that Raleigh is where Barney went to party don't you?
