GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) –

The Atlantic Coast Conference Council of Presidents has unanimously voted to accept the University of Pittsburgh and Syracuse University as new members. The invitation followed the submission of letters of application from both universities.

“The ACC is a strong united conference that is only going to get better with the addition of the University of Pittsburgh and Syracuse University,” said Duke University President Richard Broadhead, chair of the ACC Council of Presidents. “Both schools are committed to competing at the highest level of academics and athletics. We welcome them as full partners in the ACC.”

“The ACC has enjoyed a rich tradition by balancing academics and athletics and the addition of Pitt and Syracuse further strengthens the ACC culture in this regard,” said Atlantic Coast Conference Commissioner John Swofford. “Pittsburgh and Syracuse also serve to enhance the ACC’s reach into the states of New York and Pennsylvania and geographically bridges our footprint between Maryland and Massachusetts. With the addition of Pitt and Syracuse, the ACC will cover virtually the entire Eastern Seaboard of the United States.”

I also like this tidbit from the release.

"We are pleased that Syracuse adds a New York City dimension to the ACC, a region in which we have built strong identity and affinity, and we look forward to bringing ACC games to the Big Apple"

SU is 4-5 hours from NYC on a good day.
UConn is 2 1/2 hours away.
Exit 9 is less than 1 hour away.

What dimensions are they referring to? LOL...

Can BC do anything to prevent UCONN from joining the ACC, I know there is some bad blood there.

According to BCinterruption, BC has the votes to block us and I'm sure they're completely unbiased, right?

That's hilarious, cuz Duke and North Carolina have no pull in the ACC and BC does. Riiiiiiiiight. BC has no say in this, they can stomp their feet if they want, but in the end they'll do what Greensboro wants.

^^ I'm not seeing that either. And BC Interruption is nothing more than a group of BC guys who run a blog. They're not journalists or a Chip Brown-esque internet journalist.
