Georgia Tech acting AD denies Big Ten rumors

With all the hoopla over 3 reports spanning 24 hours concerning Georgia Tech potentially discussing a move to the Big Ten with the league, acting GT athletic director Paul Griffin says pay no mind:

"I'm not aware of any communications between university leadership and the Big Ten or any other conference," Griffin said Friday afternoon from Charlotte, where Tech will play Florida State for the ACC football championship Saturday.

Griffin acknowledged that an action like switching conferences from the ACC to the Big Ten would take place at an executive level, but said that Tech president G.P. "Bud" Peterson "has told me there's been no communication nor does he expect any."

I suppose one could also say this is exactly the kind of thing an athletic director who's either engaging in or who's institution is engaging in discrete conversations with one conference about leaving another would probably say. We'll see what (if anything) transpires from here.
