It's funny cause I have a client who's a prominent UVA booster. He said that spreading false rumors to UCONN and Cinci fans at the NCAA tourney was all the rage among ACC alumni. Kind of like those parties where everyone tries to bring the ugliest girl. Just mean.

THIS.

You seem happy about that. Why?


How do you get that I am happy about this?

I don't what he meant, but if I had to guess it's that you'd rather not see Cincinnati and Uconn get into the ACC. Adding those two could be seen as watering down Louisville's great achievement of getting an invite to a "power conference"I could be wrong.
Cheers!

I've always been on record as wanting Cincinnati in the ACC. They bring quality programs, and are very close to Louisville. They would be close to other ACC schools too. And I think, the ACC would elevate them, making the league stronger. It would also add an Ohio recruiting base that would benefit the ACC.

But the idea that the ACC wants to add anyone else right now is just kinda funny to me. There is no evidence that this desire is there. Or that it is necessary.

The ACC had the best football season it's ever had last year. The ACC is continuing a strong run in basketball. These are the two huge money sports. So, why would the ACC need to add anybody else right now?

The ACC is more focused on building it's network, and getting that launched successfully, to worry about adding markets, or other programs to it. This is not the time to continue expanding.

I would welcome Cincy in the ACC with Open arms. They're a great fit.

But it would depend on us and we aren't joining in full anytime soon.

UConn's best shot at a P5 slot would be the B1G.

Well I sure as heck don't see you outraged at nzmorange's take. That's how.

Not to mention you're a Louisville fan, which means you're for UCONN's continued downward spiral into irrelevance.

Why would anyone be outraged by his take -- which is simple, and observatory in nature??

If that outraged you, you may have some issues to dig into.

Hell, the thread didn't even go well on the bone-yard. Linking to another messageboard that somebody talked to an "insider" doesn't make it a rumor, it usually just makes people who believe posts like that look stupid.
