What a horrible article, no originality at all. To sum it up he suggest like every other piece ever written, a 16 team conference with 4 pods of 4.

RE: Good article on the ACC future dealing with realigning divsions suggestions
How I would do a 9 game schedule w/ a 16 team conference w/ ND and Texas + the existing ACC schools:

PODS
A) UNC, WF, Duke, and NCSU
B) Miami, FSU, GT, and Clemson
C) UVA, Texas, VT, UL
D) BC, SU, Pitt, ND

PERM RIVALS
UNC: FSU - UVA - ND
WF: Miami - UL - BC
Duke: GT - Texas - SU
NCSU: Clemson - VT - Pitt
Miami: WF - UL - Pitt
FSU: UNC - Texas - ND
GT: Duke - VT - SU
Clemson: NCSU - UVA - BC
UVA: UNC - Clemson - SU
Texas: Duke - FSU - ND
VT: NCSU - GT - BC
UL: WF - Miami - Pitt
BC: WF - Clemson - VT
SU: Duke - GT - UVA
Pitt: NCSU - Miami - UL
ND: UNC - FSU - Texas

YR 1: Pods A + B & C + D
YR 2: Pods A + C & B + D
YR 3: Pods A + D & B + C

ACC CHAMPIONSHIP SITE
Charlotte, NC

**Still, I think that Texas would be far more likely to join as a partial, and I think that WVU is far more likely to join than Texas**

Concur, anyone on this board could have written a more substantial analysis. The author fails to really address why dividing the ACC is so challenging nor discusses why going divisionless is probably the best plan of action

RE: Good article on the ACC future dealing with realigning divsions suggestions
Dave Glenn is an idiot.

The man is so stupid as not to understand that NCAA rules require everyone in a football division to play a round robin. The article is written to grab the attention of NC State fans who are tired of not playing Duke - 8 miles away, and tired of being in a division where we do not get regular trips to Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Virginia. Having FSU and Clemson in the division is only one part of the issue. Trips to Massachusetts, New York, and Kentucky do not help our recruiting. Prior to the divisional split, we heavily recruited Va and Pa. Our last two NFL QB's came from Va.

I would move the article to the out house instead of the penthouse.

RE: Good article on the ACC future dealing with realigning divsions suggestions
Why not just get rid of official divisions and establish protected pods of matchups for scheduling purposes each year? The ACC could then fill out the remainder with either Notre Dame, rotating conference opponents, or matchups based on prior year's finish. This way, you could just take the top two finishing teams and match them up in the ACC CCG.

Tobacco Pod: UNC, NC State, Duke, Wake Forest
South: Clemson, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Miami
North: Boston College, Syracuse, Pittsburgh
Atlantic: Louisville, Virginia, Virginia Tech

He has been "saying ND would become a full ACC member for a decade", lol.

Keep saying it forever, dude. Just keep saying it.

He was wrong for a decade, but boldly predicts it (again), this time "within nine years".

I agree. However, Adam Gold wrote the article.

Oh God....you corrected Lumber. You'll soon get a 2000+ word dissertation about how wrong you are.

Without reading it I want to make a guess: the high schooler who wrote it has ND in as a full member of the ACC? Am I correct?
