The nine A-C-C presidents sat down for a conference call yesterday afternoon to talk about expansion.
Representatives from Miami, Boston College and Syracuse were allowed to listen in, but ACC commissioner John Swofford says no decisions were made today.
Meanwhile Governor Mark Warner wants to take the dispute between the A-C-C and Big East conferences to a mediator, instead of to court.
