ACC update

They said what?

"I think this community is ready and able to step up and really support this game, the rest will take care of itself." -- Rob Higgins, Executive Director of the Tampa Bay Sports Commission

"There's a very concerted effort with the youth and high school markets that's somewhat unprecedented for the ACC." --Michael Kelly, ACC Associate Commissioner for football

"That city (Tampa) has shown a propensity to put on and support big events in a very big way." --John Swofford, ACC Commissioner

"You want to play that game when it's sold out, for the league's sake and for everybody involved."--Frank Beamer, Virginia Tech head coach

"The key will be a smaller venue, bigger city, and cheaper tickets. More ACC alumni, too. But you know the No. 1 rule in real estate--location, location, location. So far the rule seems to apply to ACC football, too--more than half of the seats there are already sold." --Heather Dinich, ACC Blogger
