ACC Looking At Tournament In The Garden

In the ACC spring meetings, various parties including the new arrivals are pushing to move the ACC Tournament to Madison Square Garden. There is a problem: MSG has no interest in rotating the tournament.  Certainly the North Carolina schools will want the tournament in the traditional footprint of the ACC and we would expect some sympathy from Virginia, Virginia Tech, Clemson and Georgia Tech. Greensboro is an easier trip.

Most people would be okay with rotating it we expect but moving it permanently? Not a wise move. You can ask NASCAR and the NHL what happens when you disrupt traditions and alienate your core fans. It's not a good thing to do.
