Yeah, I know WVU isnt getting in because it has no market
That too, but much more for reasons like they aren't even in the same academic universe as the acc, they're fan base is the worst in the country, they burn couches to celebrate or complain, the generate no revenue. I agree basic bball/football they're perfect, but all the other reasons won't ever let it happen. Last time VT went to morganhole, those people literally throw batteries at players....and now they serve alcohol. I have literally heard this is exponentially hurting anything they could have generate conference wise, b/c they were already sketchy to deal with prior to.
I feel confident the acc is pursing ND, but I'm sure the big 10 is also. UConn seems logical enough. I agree on Rutgers, b/c the NE USA is pro sports, not college. Really whats the best football NE USA team, PSU?
I honestly don't think any acc are going to the sec, now or later. Florida schools derailed FSU/Miami, USC derailed CU, UGA derailed GT, which left VT. VT heavily weighed its options, and to me smartly chose to continue being a big fish in a smaller pond. Nothing wrong with that imho, as 98% of cfb teams would kill for annual 10 win seasons. It fits our academic model. It fits our natural rivalries. I don't blame them, so I just don't see the sec getting an acc team at this point. 18m does account for 20m, but it also means your revenue for that year is 2m! Hard to keep propping up virtually every other collegiate sport a university has with 2m. Plus if this was so feasible, the acc would have made it 30m+.
