Bob Ryan's Getting Crushed For His Take On South Carolina, ACC

Bob Ryan on Around the Horn.

The veteran sportswriter and Around The Horn panelist is getting criticized.

Bob Ryan had a take on South Carolina athletics today.

The veteran sportswriter and ESPN Around The Horn panelist tweeted how dumb it was for South Carolina to leave the ACC in 1971. At the time, South Carolina had problems with the conference's regulations and apparent preference for the North Carolina schools. The Gamecocks were an independent until 1983, when it joined the Metro Conference, before joining the SEC in 1991.

Ryan is getting criticized pretty harshly for his opinion.

South Carolina seems to be doing just fine in the SEC. Whether or not they were right to leave the ACC 50 years ago is pretty irrelevant now.
