Though the majority of ACC football coaches have been in favor of an early signing period, they wanted the date much earlier than December. So there are mixed feelings about the Dec. 20-22 period that was recently approved. "I always wanted it earlier to take a lot of pressure off kids and coaches," Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said from the ACC spring meetings. "You're talking about getting ready for a bowl game and a playoff game and you're practicing all day, you're flying all night getting back at 2 in the morning, getting up at 6 in the morning, and going. You're going to be doing that for 2 1/2 , three weeks. … It's something I don't agree with but it is here to stay at least for another two years until they evaluate the process."
