I believe you are missing the point of the investigation and of the DOE actions. The purpose is not to kick certain individuals off campus or to punish schools.  The purpose of the investigation is to motivate schools into setting up systems to appropriately handle sexual assault reports on campus in order to protect every student.  The Gibbons and Winston cases are both perfect examples of what the DOE is trying to prevent.  In both cases the university botched the investigation.  (to understand what I mean read this or this) And in the Winston case the police botched their investigation too.  That is the issue, the fact that school are not handling/investigating these reports correctly and by doing so they lack the ability to properly punish or exonerate the accused based on the facts collected (because no facts are collected in many cases)  

Many schools lack the resources, competence or desire/will to adequately handle these cases. Most administrators at universities are educators and academics that studied once subject and do not have training to handle these very serious and difficult situations.  What the DOE is trying to do is force schools to put the proper resources in place to handle and properly investigate these cases and to create a safe environment for all students.

The ACC was doomed the second they signed their contract with ESPN.  That contract pays the schools less then the B1G, SEC, PAC and Big 12 and it gave ESPN the conferences 3rd tier rights.  FSU realized that the ACC left a ton of money and the table and that is why they flirted with the Big 12 and it is also why FSU and MD voted against the 50MM opt out fee.  They both realized that the ACC left money on the table and they wanted to have an option to bolt for greener pastures if the opportunity presented itself.  I think when MD jumped it opened some eyes in the ACC.

I also love watching him play.  He reminds me a lil bit of Lighty.  If he continues I could see him kind of filling the do a lil bit of everything / glue guy role Lighty had.  He is not as skilled or polished as Lighty was at this stage but he is more athletic.
