President Clements was also at the event and during his remarks mentioned that the ACC "should be pretty nervous right about now." Those were public remarks to an exclusively WVU crowd, so take them for what they're worth.
1. Bitter because WVU didn't get an ACC invite? Probably.
2. Puffing his chest to rile up supporters at an alumni event? Definitely.
3. Wanted his comment to get on the Internet? Negative.
