SDS– Days before the Atlantic Coast Conference was set to unveil its new slogan for the 2016-2017 sports calendar, the conference has abruptly cancelled the move and is reportedly going back to the drawing board.
In light of what ACC officials perceived as an environment with increasing controversy surrounding collegiate athletics, the ACC planned to unveil a new slogan: “It Just Means Less.” The slogan intended to emphasize the notion that the ACC is bigger than athletics. It’s an academics-first institution, and definitely not a football-focused conference.
Reportedly, ACC officials unanimously supported the new tagline, but abruptly reversed course in light of Monday’s SEC slogan reveal. During the opening day of SEC Media Days in Hoover, Ala., SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey revealed the SEC’s new “It Just Means More.”
It’s being reported that ACC leadership is split on how to proceed in response of the SEC’s move on Monday.
Clearly the SEC just saved the ACC from ridicule and mockery.
“It Just Means Less?!” Really?! Are you trying to belittle your conference? It’s ludicrous that they actually thought that was a good decision, because it would’ve made the conference as a whole the laughing stock of college football.
It’s one of the worst slogans that I have ever seen, and is almost as bad as when the English Football Association made this advertisement for their women’s national team:
You would think that they would be better than this, but then again it is the ACC we are talking about.
This is a conference that that has been built on mediocrity since its inception in 1953. Which is greatly outlined by their pitiful all-time record of 921-979-28 (or a 0.478 win percentage), AND a record of 148-296-10 against the SEC (which amounts to a whopping 0.326).
Because of this I am genuinely not shocked by any decisions they may make, including this one.
Oh ACC, never change.
