    Virginia Tech Accepts ACC's Invitation

    VT says they're in with or without Miami. Miami has even more pressure now. I think it's going to happen.

    VT first sues to stop teams from joining the ACC, and then they join the ACC. Talk about not sticking up for what you say. I guess Miami is going too.

    VT has Always been envious of UVA's status in the ACC. VT and UVA had no choice with the Governor and Attorney General pushing all their buttons. Rightnow i'm laughing my *** off at the prospect of Miami not joining at all and leaving the ACC with Va.Tech alone from the Big east. Tech has been ok at best since Vick left, but God helpyou if you tell a hokie fan theyregoing to struggle like hell to be a top 4 team in the ACC.

    No they won't. If VT was in the ACC last year they would have easily won the conference title.

    ACC football sucks. Last year it was worse than Big East football.

    You're wrong about ACC football..

    Virginia and Georgia Tech have former pro coaches running pro-style offense now. Their competitiveness has improved and will continue to do so.

    1981 Clemson
    1982 Penn State
    1983 Miami(FL)
    1984 BYU
    1985 Oklahoma
    1986 Penn State
    1987 Miami(FL)
    1988 Notre Dame
    1989 Miami(FL)
    1990 Colorado/Georgia Tech
    1991 Washington/Miami(FL)
    1992 Alabama
    1993 Florida State
    1994 Nebraska
    1995 Nebraska
    1996 Florida
    1997 Michigan/Nebraska
    1998 Tennessee
    1999 Florida State

    As I count it, since 1981 three different teams from the ACC have won five National Championships. The Big East has won five in the same time span. All won by who ? Miami.

    Now what conference sucks in football ?

    After Miami joins the ACC you will have at least 3 perennial powerhouses in all three major sports categories. Football, Basketball, and Baseball. On any given year the conference could have four or five.

    People have said that this is about cash. Why, yes it is. Cash from football games with an attendance of at least 60,000 at all football games except for Duke and Wake Forest. Those two schools make up their downfall in this area through their basketball programs and it's attendance.

    Basketball ? In the past 21 years 12 ACC teams have been in the NCAA Basketball championship.

    Year-by-Year Tournament History
    Year Championship game Score
    2002 Maryland def. Indiana 64-52
    2001 Duke def. Arizona 82-72
    2000 Michigan State def. Florida 89-76
    1999 Connecticut def. Duke 77-74
    1998 Kentucky def. Utah 78-69
    1997 Arizona def. Kentucky 84-79 (OT)
    1996 Kentucky def. Syracuse 76-67
    1995 UCLA def. Arkansas 89-78
    1994 Arkansas def. Duke 76-72
    1993 North Carolina def Michigan 77-71
    1992 Duke def. Michigan 71-51
    1991 Duke def. Kansas 72-65
    1990 UNLV def. Duke 103-73
    1989 Michigan def. Seton Hall 80-79 (OT)
    1988 Kansas def. Oklahoma 83-79
    1987 Indiana def. Syracuse 74-73
    1986 Louisville def. Duke 72-69
    1985 Villanova def. Georgetown 66-64
    1984 Georgetown def. Houston 84-75
    1983 NC State def. Houston 54-52
    1982 North Carolina def. Georgetown 63-62
    1981 Indiana def. North Carolina

    In cash and competitiveness the Big East does not match up..That's why it's a done deal...

    After he laid out N.Y. Giants cover boy Frank Gifford and forced a fumble, "Concrete Charlie" Bednarik stood over Gifford's motionless body and emphatically declared.......


    This game is over!
