GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Summers aren’t quiet anymore for the Atlantic Coast Conference.

More NCAA concerns have arisen at Miami while North Carolina prepares to serve its one-year bowl ban.

Commissioner John Swofford said Sunday that the "sooner we can get the several problems totally behind us that we’ve had in this league, the better."

The league opened its two-day media days facing a new list of questions.

What will happen with Miami after new rule-breaking accusations surfaced late last week? Will the league keep growing or stop with Pittsburgh and Syracuse? Who will the ACC play in those future Orange bowls?

Swofford says the league’s focus is "totally on 14" schools and says it has "had some discussions that could bring in a very broad group" as possible Orange Bowl opponents.
