    WVU is an easy choice from a geography and rivals perspective, even if they're gross.

    Probably won't be any appetite to bring up ucf, but I wonder if they go for a different baby school like memphis

    Notre Dame sacks up finally and joins and then...selfishly I would want UConn

    UConn's the wrong choice though and they're finally back in the big east for basketball so let's go with WVU

    I'm no athletics admin but if it ends up with 16 team superconferences, staying out would have to be a financial mistake I'd think

    I was thinking TCU or Baylor for the texas footprint

    But if ND did join, I wonder they could bring anyone along with them

    fuck it, just add ND. three pods of five. play the other four in your pod every year, rotate five schools home-and-home every two years, your team gets to home-and-home the entire conference every four years, nine game conference schedule.

    Cuse/BC/Pitt/VT/UVA

    ND/UNC/NCSU/Duke/WF

    UL/CU/GT/UM/FSU

    I mean it’s better than the addition of Pitt for sure

    going to bring a good football, basketball, and baseball program not to mention women’s Bball, rifle, etc. Plus the fan support will always be there. Much better fit for us geographically than what we’ve had to deal with in the big 12

    Yes, there are plenty of morons who think SEC money and recruiting pull is the only thing holding us back from competing in football. Let’s ignore literal decades of ineptitude, playing UF, UGA, Bama, and LSU all the time is just what we need to get over the hump.

    Edit for clarity

    i am assuming that we are tied to the hip and the state won't let one of us go without the other (or to be a tad arrogant, they won't let unc leave state behind)

    assuming that to be true, it sure would be nice if we saw the writing on the wall and tried to make a move before this ship sinks.

    Honestly I think the ACC is in a decent position going forward. We don’t make the B1G/SEC money but as long as Clemson doesn’t try to leave (why would they?) I think the league is poaching rather than being poached over the next 5 years.

    That said I don’t see any chance either of the NC public schools leave the ACC as long as it’s even semi stable. Too much time and investment in the league and too many decision makers who have long term attachment.

    PAC-12 is (or at least was) nearly bankrupt. But they get largely left out of realignment talks because none of their schools really make sense in other conferences.
