to be fair, Louisville was on a good path with Petrino. Kragthorpe's couple years there REALLY put them back a few years.
And the Big 10 considered Louisville, but they were down the totem poll. The ACC move was move for b-ball purposes (though with the Big East practically dead, it's a good move)
Not exactly. Everything that we've heard here is we got the invite over UConn because FSU and Clemson went to bat for us and told the ACC to invite us for football reasons. But of course having games against Duke, UNC, and NC State in the KFC Yum Center certainly doesn't hurt either.
