Pitt and Syracuse totally screwed everyone. The ACC will accept two schools as partial members, with half revenue shares.

They won't due that and poison their own well. Like any other business partnership, it has to be all equal or some members will be stigmatized. We are talking about stuffy administrators of universities here. They are ruthless, but not uncouth.

Hopefully you are right. But if you are the ACC, and ESPN says that UConn/Rutgers is worth $40 million to the TV deal, why would you give that all to UConn/Rutgers? Or even split it evenly? The schools are desperate and there are more sellers than buyers. It is a buyer's market.

I could see a 16 team ACC, with Nova as a 17 for other sports. 17 is a great basketball number for scheduling. Play everyone once. Boom. Done. Plus, a basketball conference with Duke, UNC, Maryland, Pitt, Syracuse, UConn, Villanova could gain revenue that could seriously rival many football conferences. Hell, the future ACC could always have the entire Final Four.

Even add Georgetown for 18. Play everyone once and a rival twice for 18 games. (FSU-MIA, CLEM-GT, NCST-WAKE, UNC-DUKE, UVA-VT, MD-G'TOWN, PITT-SU, NOVA-RU, CT-BC) That's better than 90% of NBA games.

Excuse me ... but why would we believe John Swofford on the number. He would/could say 321 & I'd be damn skeptical. I do give the guy credit: but frankly, OUR sport is seriously crap at the moment ... and he is MY poster child.

Villianova applied to the SEC. The Security and Exchange Commission to issue WildCat junk bonds to revamp the soccer field and add 10,000 cheap ass bleachers and stain them some sick shade of blue.

The ACC has already stated that it would not take partial members.

FWIW, last spring when Nova upgrading to the BE in football appeared to be a done deal (a ridiciulous one at that, and something that played an enormous role in what is now transpiring) a couple of Nova posters (on their rivals board) were convinced that the minute they became a BE football school the ACC would make a move to grab them.

Those statements reminded me of Johnny Carson's joke (after Jimmy Carter won the '76 presidential election) that Billy Carter would be appointed to attorney general once he completed his correspondence course.
