Maybe the elite academic schools will disagree. But they are good in football and basketball and actually have a strong fan base unlike Uconn and others. I think they would bring a lot to the ACC.

Of what is potentially available I would agree….....But I would put a full court press on going after Penn State if we can make an attractive enough offer

I think the Maryland deal just closed that off. Who knows if this was in response to moves by the ACC towards them.

THey always wanted eastern partners in the Big 10. Now they got them.
Of who is left Louisville is the most attractive and will be one more school with an SEC rival. I think that is good.

I still expect UConn though especially with the ESPN folks calling the shots and paying the checks. THat is their home school I guess.

I must say that the “Under Armour” Terrapins really surprised me with this little move.  I guess they learned from the Obama/Bush administration that if you cannot manage your finances, just go to another place and keep throwing more money at the problem.  Screw the Turtle! 

I can’t really fault Rutgers because the Big East is dying on the vine.

I totally agree about Louisville.  I would consider that a trade up from Maryland competitively.  I think the ACC brand would br strengthened with that addition.

There is another option and I don’t know what the ramifications are, but I wonder if WVU is an option?  They are paying serious penance for what they did to us in the OB and I wounder if the ACC could correct a major mistake from last year.  I am sure after the beatings that they are taking from those greener pastures of the Big 12 that ACC country looks mighty appealing now.

Louisville is the only Big East team I would want to see go to the ACC. I don’t think any other school would bring the complete athletic package.

WVU signed a GOR, the Big 12 would own their TV money for 15 years. They are not even a possibility.

FSU has beaten the SEC champ at least 8 times, and we don’t even play in the SEC, lol:

FSU beat the 1987 SEC champs 34-6
FSU beat the 1988 SEC champs 13-7
FSU beat the 1989 SEC champs 22-14
FSU beat the 1993 SEC champs 33-21
FSU beat the 1994 SEC champs 23-17
FSU beat the 1996 SEC champs 24-21
FSU beat the 2000 SEC champs 30-7
FSU beat the 2013 SEC champs 34-31

Give it up for the SEC, a conference which almost beat FSU

I think the ACC should show a team the door and go to 12 teams. Split the cash 12 ways, etc. it will not happen, but it should.

I suggested this very thing. My pick would be Wake Forest. They could still be in the ACC in every other sport but football. This might seem like a dick move to do to a charter member, but it could potentially save the ACC.

12 teams worked out fine before and it would work out better when you start eliminating the refuse.

LOL.  Ideally the SEC SEC SEC would be the best home for FSU and Clemson.  No jet lagged games and we’d finally get the respect we deserve by the media.  The Big 12 however would still be a huge upgrade in competition and cash that I would GLADLY welcome.

Cash…really? The agreements do not bear that out but dont let the facts get in the way of your opinions. Nobody else seems to. Especially since the Big 12 was told that expansion would not increase their contract. The ACC still has not negotiated the addition of the Notre Dame games. You are about to get equal money to the Big 12 so you can drop that off your bitching list.
