On a day when Southeastern Conference commissioner Roy Kramer visited Florida State, the Atlantic Coast Conference gave every indication that it would accept the Tallahassee, Fla., university as its ninth member.
Both Florida State president Bernard Sliger and ACC commissioner Gene Corrigan have set Saturday as a deadline for making a decision about their future.
Corrigan emerged from a long meeting of his athletic directors and faculty representatives yesterday in the league's Greensboro, N.C., office and said, "Florida State has passed the litmus test of our people. Our people are interested in Florida State. So now the issue is whether to expand or not. We hope to work our way to a decision in another day or so."
