I’ll root for ACC teams out of conference, especially when it has no bearing on my individual teams. ACC fans tend to be somewhat mixed on this practice. That has a lot to do with the ACC’s football struggles in recent years.
Louisville’s addition was met with universal praise, though.
To it’s credit future ACC member Syracuse opened some ACC eyes with its bowl over West Virginia. The ACC’s surprisingly successful bowl caught the attention of alot of ACC fans too. but it all appeared to culminate with Louisville’s route of SEC power Florida.
Here’s a sampling of the rest of the ACC from Message Boards to twitter giving Louisville congratulations and support.

Thank you Louisville.
