Those of you who follow NCAA sports have probably heard by now that the ACC has been recruiting some schools from the Big East to join their conference. The main purpose seems to be to get the 12 teams needed in order to have a conference play off game in football which also means added $$$ (they needed to add three). At first they were looking at Syracuse, Boston College, and Miami with the reasoning that the addition of SU and BC would help them to get a foothold into the northeast TV market. Again, more $$$ and would make their east coast alumni happy. The University of Virginia (an ACC school) would not go along with this unless Virginia Tech would be invited to also join the ACC. Now the ACC is only asking VT and UM to join. VT, who until last week was committed to remaining in the Big East and even had joined with Pitt, WVU, Rutgers, and UConn in a law suit against BC and UM to help preserve the Big East Conference, has accepted. Miami has not made a formal decision yet. With only VT and UM invited it still leaves the ACC one team short of the 12 needed to have a play off game. By leaving out SU and BC their goal of courting the northeast TV market and alum is out the window too. VT and UM have played for the national championship in the last two years and are the two top football schools in the Big East. Their exit could very well mean that the Big East will loose their place in the BCS.:evil: I feel that the NCAA needs to take control of conference affiliations and attempt to make things more equitable. What do you think?
