Exclamation ACC could expand to 16 and 17 team formate
Given that the State of Florida is such a rich recruiting ground. I think the ACC should consider expanding to 16 teams in Football.

ACC North
Boston College
Syracuse
Pittsburgh
Louisville
Virginia Tech
North Carolina State
Central Florida
Miami

ACC South
Virginia
Duke
North Carolina
Wake Forest
Clemson
Georgia Tech
Florida State
South Florida

Notre Dame same deal. ACC would have 17 teams for all other sports.

Connecticut will never get in due to bad blood over you trying to sue ACC. 07-coffee3

FSU and Miami would never let the conference elevate UCF and USF to equals in the Florida recruiting game. Same with Florida in the SEC. The twins can maybe market themselves as a package to the Big 12, but UConn will get into the ACC before those two do.

RE: ACC could expand to 16 and 17 team formate
Why would Florida State and Miami approve of adding two additional programs to their markets? Why would the Tobacco Road schools in UNC, Duke, Wake and NCST want "new money" so to speak? Why would the Northern schools (BC, SU, Pitt) want to de-emphasize the Northeast even further?

Unless there is a Florida State-defection from the ACC, I don't see it.

You forgot Cincinnati. They have had a bad two year stretch in football, but they'll be back. Current #1 recruiting class in the G5 right now and a strong one last year. Basketball is Steady Eddie. Ohio market not too shabby to be in.

Pittsburgh was part of the same lawsuit.

THIS ^^^^

The only way into the P5 for UCF and USF is the Big XII. And I believe it is more viable than folks think.

As far as the ACC expanding goes, I don't see the conference doing anything for a long time.

It needs to solve the issues regarding scheduling first ... and I think that takes other conferences joining with them (the SEC faces similar issues and could be on board with that too). Fixing this, may stabilize things for the foreseeable future, and that stability could entice smaller conferences to join the SEC and ACC in supporting this scheduling tweak.

Umm...no. That talking point died in 2011 when the ACC invited Pittsburgh. Try again.

Time heals all wounds. Money does too. Mainly money.
