You mean like that time in 2012 when everyone in the media had UCONN getting an invite to the ACC instead of Louisville?

Add me to the clown list. I don't think Navy will be #16 but I don't think they are a bad choice. National reputation. Good academics. Located in the MD/DC area. Relationship with Notre Dame. Military academy. Army/Navy game(s).

I don't think they are on the top of the list but I believe they are on the list.

I didn't say they were a bad choice. I just chuckle when everyone has Navy etched in stone as ND's CR partner. I'm sure everyone remembers when UCONN was etched in stone for an invite that ultimately went to Louisville in 2012.

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.

Where in my post did I say I was outraged? Hang on a mo while I look to see if I did.......nope nothing there.

I couldn't help but notice you didn't dispute my second point. I'd be lying if I said I was shocked by that.

Also, to the clown(s) who suggested Navy will be getting #16 in the very unlikely event ND decides to forsake their (faux) independence...the Cleveland Browns have a better chance of winning Super Bowl 51 than Navy getting an ACC invite.
So same chance as UConn.

My post was about Navy. Try to keep up.

Rumor-UConn and Cincy to ACC in 2018?
(03-18-2017 02:54 PM)megadrone Wrote:  UConn's chances come down to:

1. Does Tobacco Road want them? (Possibily, improves basketball)
2. Would the old Big East block want them in and is it enough to overcome the BC/Football based block?
3. Does ESPN think they add value?

I guess the basic question would be who is going to pony up the additional $25M/year or so for each new school to make something like this financially viable, given the contraction which appears to be occurring in the industry today?

The ACC appears to be set for the next 20 years. Hard to imagine there would be any adjustments literally a year into the new deal.

Given the new realities in the marketplace, I just don't see any conference going beyond 14 members.

If we wanted them they would be the choice. UConn guy won't except that. I understand why because they know UConn will not be the choice if we have a pick.

I'm glad you're so dialed in to what I will and won't "accept". You're just a freaking svengali over there. Navy has the same chance at the ACC as the Browns do at SB 51. You, Mr. ND fan, won't acc, err...except that.

They thought we added value in 2011. So I'm not sure anything about #3 has changed.

The AAC will rise in stature in only a few more years so Uconn can stay in the aac and be just fine...
