    FSU didn't agree. They voted no. So did Maryland.

    It's a $50MM contractual exit fee. Doesn't it require a unanimous vote to change the fee?

    The ACC's $50 million exit fee shows how much they trust fellow members from jumping to other conferences. The ACC killed 2 birds with 1 stone by increasing the exit fees (so no school can jump to another conference without major financial considerations) and having Notre Dame join the ACC. Both moves were made to prevent the Big 12 from getting stronger and to further stabilize the ACC.

    According to who you talk to if they voted no or yes, interesting some are saying they voted no after everything was saying all agreed to it earlier in the day, wonder if some are CYA'ing now . Gotta love realignment, very similar to political elections and inability to trust anyone involved..jmo
