Unless Swofford is no longer there, the vision will be towards Texas and Ohio. Unless ND wants to join and bring Navy as football only. ACC has moved to Football first and Basketball second in any future expansion. IMHO, ACC is hoping to get some B12 teams if the league dissolves in 2024. 10 years ago, I think UCONN would have been in the ACC hands down. Football is the reason UCONN is not in the ACC now and unless something drastically changes, it won't be in any time soon.

That's the 2012 excuse when the ACC took Louisville. That wasn't the case the year previous. In that instance, you trotted out that old lawsuit chestnut, then immediately doubled down on the stupid and invited the ringleaders of said lawsuit along with Syracuse.

The real reason is the UConn negatives far outweigh the positives and as the years tick on and you get further and further from the Calhoun days that gap grows larger and larger. If UConn brought anywhere near the value that their fanboys thought they would be in the ACC or another P5 conference. They don't and they aren't.

My point, which seemed to sail way over your head it might as well have been in outer space, is that the lawsuit excuse died in 2011 when the ACC invited Pitt. Full stop.

It’s a shame Quantico doesn’t play football, although it doesn’t bring a new market to the ACC.

2014
Houston 35 Pitt 34 (Armed Forces Bowl)

2015
Houston 34 @ Louisville 31
Houston 38 Florida St 24 (Peach Bowl)

2016
@ Houston 36 Louisville 10


Yeah Houston is being overlooked a lot in these threads. I could see them being a pretty valuable add, especially with an ACC Network in place.

There are a lot of deserving schools on the outside looking in. Houston is near the top of that list.

Having Houston in the ACC is a good idea like having West Virginia in the Big 12 is a good idea. We all need to have a team located out on an island.

Blumenthal......

...is in the US Senate and was not, i repeat not, the leader of the lawsuit. Try again.

I don't have to try a damn thing. I don't have to prove anything to you. UConn is the entity on the outside, looking in.

He was one of the leading figures in the lawsuit.

He pissed off a bunch of ACC folks. Hell, I don't really have a dog in this fight, but remember the vitriol then.

Keep being how you are.

So did Pitt and Va Tech. Tell me, oh smugly superior one, what conference is Va Tech and Pitt in? Also, one of the leading figures does not equal the leading figure. But you knew that and still spit out that ignorant post.

The governors of Virginia and Pennsylvania got on TV and ran down the ACC like the governor of Connecticut did? Don't recall that. You got a link?

What I do recall is a Saturday evening at duck camp sitting around the fire ring drinking good bourbon where a Clemson BOT member said UConn wasn't getting in anyway, but whatever slim chance they ever had was gone the minute Blumenthal opened his yap.

This is the same BOT member who told you they expected UConn to the ACC to go through strongly enough after early discussions that the school made arrangements to leave to spook the rest of the conference heading into official meetings?

No, that was a totally different BOT member and before the conference had meetings. Prior to the conference vote it was a real concern for Clemson and the rest of the programs that care about football.

A it stands all the programs are where they belong. Louisville cares about football and is in the ACC, UConn doesn't and they are starting to prostitute out their football program with buy games.
