My thought is replace Memphis with Penn State and I’d be fine with it. But there’s zero chance of this conference ever happening.

RE: Using the ACCN to build a conference
Hard to follow. The ACCN would be a new conference, but - essentially - kick out UNC, Duke, NCST, Wake, Miami, GT, ND, FSU, Clemson and Virginia Tech? Rutgers and Maryland would willingly bolt the B1G, along with GOR/exit fees, and $50 million annually, to come to this league without a single blue blood football program (and likely less overall money)? Same for West Virginia. Appears you are trying to just recreate the Football Big East (along with Virginia, Maryland and Memphis).

A Northeast-based conference could, eventually, come to fruition, but it would have to start with Penn State. They are a blue blood with national football prestige, and could command such an organization, if it wanted to. That's years and years from ever being considered, however. (And there's a reason Penn State-to-the-Big East never materialized either).

Yeah, now that you point it out, other than UVA, it more or less it.

I didn't pick PSU because I didn't think they'd leave the B1G. And as always, I ignored exit fees.

No thank you. I like the ACC better than the Old Big East. The football and tailgating is better.
