Verdict on 2009 ACC title game: No winner

A statement from Atlantic Coast Conference Commissioner John Swofford regarding the NCAA Infractions Committee’s ruling on Georgia Tech:

“We are aware of the NCAA’s decision with regard to Georgia Tech. The penalties that have been announced will require Georgia Tech to vacate the 2009 ACC Football Championship. Consistent with NCAA procedures, Georgia Tech will return the championship trophy and the official conference records for 2009 will not designate a champion. All ACC record books will be amended accordingly.”

I am on Georgia Tech's teleconference as I type this. More later.
