RE: ACC Scheduling News
Remember that time the Big East inquire about a scheduling alliance with the ACC? The ACC did form an alliance... with Miami, VT, BC, Pitt, Syracuse, Notre Dame and Louisville.

Perhaps the ACC will form an alliance with some Big XII teams some day.

I'm glad to see some mutual understandings starting to take shape. And why not? It's as natural for ACC schools north of the Carolinas to schedule games with B1G counterparts as it is for our southern members to meet regularly with SEC teams. Throw WV into the mid-Atlantic mix and everybody gains something.

Who isn't down for more games like Pitt-Penn State?

Or Clemson-Ohio State? heh heh heh

It's understandable to be having imperialist expansion thoughts. Where my dreams of conquest tend (like the ACC's so far) to involve dominating the Eastern time zone, there are those here who get sexed out by the idea of an Atlantic Coast Conference with corn state schools. I know.

It's worth observing that the CBS story about alliances was mainly about the Big 12(10) approaching the Pac-12. The Pac does have more room for growth than other leagues and it has cast a covetous eye on Texas and Oklahoma schools before.

Agree 100%. A scheduling alliance with anyone is idiotic for the ACC, and that includes another partial memberhip (cough cough Texas).

You want to schedule someone, schedule them. Don't force BC to play Ole Miss or FSU to play Illinois because of some stupid alliance. No benefit there. The nature of this conference means that some schools are going to benefit playing the Big 10 more, some the SEC, some smaller privates anywhere.

And the Big 12 (outside WVU) makes almost the least sense of any of them. They've only got athletes in one state, and they've already got 9 Big 12 schools and the SEC West fighting over them. Virginia Tech isn't going to make some great Texas recruiting inroads by playing TCU or Kansas State on a semi-recurring basis.

The ACC has NOTHING to gain there. Schedule who makes sense for you. In any conference.

At least we draw North Carolina from the Coastal this year instead of Duke.


Yeah ... but this thread is touting out-of-conference games with freakin' Kansas, UConn, Maryland and Rutgers. Purdue and Kentucky fit right in with these heavy weights.

2018 - kicking off the season with Alabama is already scheduled, and will be a tough one.

That first match up was pretty exciting, but the second one was a blowout...
