So who does the ACC get? UCONN is the favorite I think. Would actualy be a pretty nice trade for the ACC just from a sports perspective, particularly basketball

It'll be UCONN. 100% certain about that.

Rutgers will follow UMD to the B1G.

The Big East will make a strong push for Navy all sports. If they say no, they'll take ECU or UMass.

Yeah UConn is probably coming to the ACC. I'll trade Maryland for UConn in a heartbeat.

I wouldn't. With Calhoun gone, who knows what will happen. Connecticut doesn't really have a lot going for it other than Calhoun.

Louisville is a much stronger athletics program. Its not even close.

UCONN is in horrible shape right now.

Question Mark at basketball coach.

Banned from postseason.

A HORRIBLE football program led by some 80 year old retread college coach.


I'd rather have Louisville.

Yeah the ACC is going to get stronger in hoops when everything is settled.

I don't think the movement is done though and the ACC will eventually lose FSU, Clemson, and/or VT. Maybe not this year and maybe not within 5 years, but eventually.

Just a hypothetical question- what happens if football becomes less popular in the next 20 years? Do these superconferences fall apart if the TV contracts start shrinking?

I was reading on ESPN that another deciding factor for leaving the ACC was that they were tired of playing second fiddle to Duke and UNC. I found that especially hilarious bc where do they see themselves in the pecking order for the Big 10. Ahead of Michigan? Nope. Ohio State? Nope. Michigan State? Nope. Penn State? Probably not. Wisconsin? Probably not.

I have not read said article, but you probably took it the wrong way or they did not do a good job writing it.

If you visit some of the ACC football forums you will notice most of the ACC fans feels the conference caters to UNC... similar to Texas with the Big 12. The Big 10 is known for being fair and not catering to any 1 particular team or fan base.
