Apparently the ACC and Big East Merged

I love Fran Fraschilla. I think he’s great doing Big 12 games. I think he’s great calling other games. I like hearing him talk about weird international players that are “Two years away from being two years away.” He’s a good guy. That doesn’t explain why he tweeted this: Smartest thing ACC ever did was merge with Big East. Didn't get everyone but Louisville, Pitt, Notre...

Let’s rewind that a step back, people with maturity and common decency don’t go on...
