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
We probably would join if things continued down this path
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
Plus you would have the dynamic duo of Tobias and devine in one conference
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.
whoa whoa whoa we put ND in the fake ACC pod with the rest of the big east I can't live without my raycom sports tobacco road matchups
On behalf on the FSU delegation; fuck nah at that pod.
or pods of 4
ND, BC, Cuse, Louisville
UVA, Va T, Pitt, WVU
NCSU, UNC, Duke, Wake
FSU, Ga T, Clemson, Miami
Give us the shittiest pod
listen man, the other two pods are inferior states that won't survive the second Civil War, just shutup and go with it.
ok now do the others
ND, Pitt, FSU, Miami, BC thanks
nortH carolina state
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
WVU is a no brainer
only if we can't get maryland back
lmao can you fucking imagine
We already sold our souls for trash Louisville, bring WVU along.
Might as well invite Kentucky and South Carolina too lol
TCU and ND imo
While we’re at it we should just dump Cuse
say we all just go independent and become mercenaries
Never really watched hafley speak until the acc media days. Charasmatic guy imo
have this on in the background for some white noise and was thinking the same thing
hopefully the new guy is more proactive and competent than swoff when dealing with realignment
we have some absolute duds weighing us down as a conference
Aren't we the poorest coference?
speaking of charisma
*Dave Doeren steps to the podium*
We aren’t gonna boot anyone tho, even if ditching BC and Wake makes a shit ton of sense.
just gonna have to dig up some dirt on these nerds
is there a sizable pack contingent that kinda feels like a&m did with texas and wants to get out of the acc with unc for the sec?
Convince Texas to double cross the SEC. get on it
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.
Can’t lose wake.
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.
ACC Family Money:
ACC New Money:
Round robin football plus one cross-division rival and one cross-division game based on last year's standings. Basketball home and away in-division and rotating home/away cross-division (at the expense of bullshit non-conference games). Jim Phillips, invoice is in the mail plz remit within 30 days.
The man can wear a suit tho
It’s the ducking Big East division
it sure fvcking is
Did my man just use "rifle" as a positive for WVU?
Sorry I cant vote yes for this now
Hey, it was worth a shot
the most reluctant of likes given
If youre gonna make a rifle joke you gotta commit lock, stock, and barrel.
