Default ACC ties SEC with historic accomplishment

“Anytime you win the football national championship and the men’s basketball national championship in the same year, it is extraordinary," Swofford said as the ACC Spring Meetings wrapped up in Amelia Island, Fla. "It has only happened 10 times in the history of the NCAA. This is the third time it has happened in the ACC. It’s happened, ironically, three times in the SEC, twice in the PAC 12, it has not happened in the Big 12 and once in the Big Ten and that was the year before the ACC was founded.

“I say that out of respect for all of those leagues because that insinuates how hard that is to do and how unusual that it is.

“There is one thing I learned over the years in this business and probably should be true in life as well. When there are things to celebrate, you should celebrate them. Particularly those that are unusual and difficult to achieve.”
