    Syracuse and Pitt bring ACC basketball back to a much higher level than it has been in recent years. The days of the Big 2 are over with and you can say its now the Big 4.

    I would rather see L'ville in the ACC than UCONN or Rutgers, but I don't know if that will happen. I hope L'ville is a team with a chair when all is said and done, but I'm not so sure.

    Louisville, like WV won't get in to the ACC because of academics. They won't make the SEC either because of Kentucky. WV could get into the SEC but I think Va Tech is more likely. There's a rumor floating around that Texas could join the ACC in all sports but go independent in football, but still play several ACC teams a year. UCONN is a possibility. Not really sure about Rutgers academics, but if it's good they could be in.

    VA TECH to the SEC is NOT going to happen. ACC raised its "exit" fee to an insane $20 million. No ACC school is leaving now

    Both teams are great fits for the ACC.

    Good tradition in football, strong basketball programs, and very good academics.

    Reports are now UCONN is begging their way into the ACC, could happen soon. They will be 15. That 16th spot they will probably keep open for a bit for ND but most likely goes to Rutgers

    It hasn't been the best conf in a few years like it was consistently for forever but it's still nto a joke, not when you have 2 of the top programs in the Country in it. This move helps ACC BB which has been struggling since expansion.

    UConn would make this the premier basketball conference in the NCAA by far. Hopefully the NCAA decides only to punish Frank Haith and Daequan Jones if they find anything like they did with Bruce Pearl, and not the program. With Larranaga, Miami might finally be able to join in on the fun.

    They'll make that 20 million back in no time in the SEC.
