    Looks like his AD finally listened to Boeheim's complaints about the idea of being in a possible 20 team basketball league.

    I think this would be a solid move for both those schools and the ACC. I do think this may tip off the mad grab of other conferences.

    UCONN doesn't fit the ACC's academic profile and K and Roy don't much like Calhoun.

    I wonder how TCU will feel about this. There's now way the Big East should still have an automatic bid.

    Certainly improves things on the hardwood.

    Probably won't happen, but would be great if Marquette, DePaul, Georgetown, Providence, St John's, Seton Hall and 'Nova joined the A-10... or at least 'Nova, G'Town, St John's and Providence.

    Part of me wonders if this proactiveness is to protect itself if the sec comes calling to schools.

    Makes a awesome bball conference though.

    Agree. I really thought it would be a Big-10/ACC fight for these two schools. ACC was wise to be proactive and leaves the Big 10 with few attractive options for expansion.

    My guess is at the end of the day the SEC isn't going to be content with 14 and will go to 16.

    I'm sure you've all seen the reports that WVU is basically #14 once the A&M situation gets worked out. I can't imagine that there aren't a couple of ACC schools on the SEC's radar as well.

    Good point. The league certainly appears to be on strong footing. Have to wonder if this helps entrench Clemson, FSU, VT were the sec to gauge interest.
