Hoping to see something that looks like basketball

I'm not sure that they have fully abandoned those standards in their own eyes. NCAA violations are meaningless in the context of academic attractiveness to undergrads and grad students. The academic reputations of most ACC schools remains very good.I don’t think WVU is going anywhere. I don’t think WVU is going to the ACC.
One thing that has changed, however, is the reputation of the ACC.
The facade has crumbled. The academic standards hurdle is no longer a talking point with addition of Louiseville. UNC, Cuse, and Ville are the usual suspects for NCAA violations.
WVU would fit into today’s ACC, not because WVU has elevated, but because the ACC no longer carries the illusion of higher standards and academic excellence.
That said, I don’t think WVU is going anywhere.
That said, what has changed the most is that the ACC has gone from a distant 4th place in college football, just ahead of the Pac12, to winning 3 of the last 6 championships. They don't need WVU anymore.
