Clemson meeting: Much ado about nothing

Clemson's board of trustees will meet at 4 p.m. today, but a school spokesman told me the only thing that will be voted on will be tuition. Yes, the board members will discuss the recent speculation surrounding the Big 12, but more than anything, it's an informative session to make sure everyone is on the same page. Don't expect any major news out of this meeting on the expansion front.

I've spoken with several athletic directors and ACC officials, and I'm constantly hearing the same thing: Nobody is expecting anything to change anytime soon.

I believe them.

If -- and that's a huge if -- anything were to change, it wouldn't happen until after the new playoff format has been decided upon.
