Winning or losing may not matter. Politics in the ACC kept UConn out. Cable boxes in New Jersey got Rutgers in. I think at this time, it wouldn't hurt to be competitive in one's own conference at least when the carousel starts up again.Ha, what a load of BS! UConn was the top dog in the Big East and look where that got us. Even FB won the league and got to a BCS bowl at a time of realignment. A Pasqualoni coached team beat UL on the road when the ACC was choosing between UConn and UL and guess who the ACC chose. If realignment was based on winning and being the top-dog how the hell is Pitt, BC, Cuse and especially Rutgers ahead of UConn?
