Rumor-UConn and Cincy to ACC in 2018?
https://the-boneyard.com/threads/confere...ll.108814/

I could see this as possible as the ACC is going to a 20-game basketball schedule in a few years and will have less teams in the tournament if they don't expand because everyone will average one more loss per season in conference. The ACC would just go to a 9-game schedule in football. As far as ND is concerned, one year out of three, they would play 6 games in football against the ACC.

Sure.

Both add value to the Northeast Footprint the ACC is trying to build.

Spice things up with an expansion.

This won't happen, and this thread won't end well.

Sounds like the type of information John Swofford would give to a prominent UVA booster for no reason whatsoever.

Nope....why would they go from 15 to 17 members? There really is only 1 spot available since Notre Dame is contracted to join football to the ACC.

Now I could see Cincy to the ACC and UConn to the Big East but not both to the ACC.

They are not contracted to join the ACC in football. If they join a conference, they would have to join the ACC, but there is NO reason why ND would give up independence. They get 5 ACC games, Navy, USC, Stanford guaranteed every year. That is their conference schedule. As far as basketball, more teams more than likely means more bids which means more tournament credits. Also, because they are going to a 20-game schedule in basketball, they will possibly need more teams to cushion the blow of everyone losing one more conference game on average. If Wake is 18-14 this year instead of 19-13, they don't go dancing.

The ACC isn't going to 9 conference football games & ND will not play 6 ACC games once every three years. You don't need to add teams to go to a 20 game basketball schedule. More teams doesn't necessarily mean more bids but it does guarantee 2 extra shares out of the basketball & football $$$. The tea leaves say no.
