Former ABA president D'Alemberte sucked into the vortex of blarney surrounding ACC-Big East dispute
Former American Bar Association president and Florida State University president emeritus Talbot "Sandy" D'Alemberte denies that he ever threatened to have Florida State pull out of the Atlantic Coast Conference if there was no expansion, as reported here and in this article, which says "[r]eading the story was nearly enough to unravel D'Alemberte's bow tie as he ate breakfast." D'Alemberte's alleged threats, which he denies, have been cited as one basis for the desire of the ACC to expand to include Miami and other Big East schools.
