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

I could see this as possible seeing as the conference is going to 20 conference games in basketball and may not want to risk getting in less bids because every team on average will lose one more game. Although, football would likely go to a 9-game schedule to get more in line with the Pac-12, Big 12, and B1G.

Yup. Rumour.

Wait... did not this rumour circulate through the interwebs last year or so and nothing came of it...?

Them 2 schools are stuck. UConn needs to get back to the Big East...

What a surprise that a rumor like this would come from such an unbiased source as The Boneyard.

The fact that the Dude hasn't even "reported" this gives me a glimmer of hope.

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.

Rumor-UConn and Cincy to ACC in 2018?
As I replied on the other board:

The notion that the senior leadership of a conference would be discussing highly sensitive matters with people who are then openly discussing such matters with anyone and everyone in the stands at a game is just idiotic, IMO.

The characterization of these folks as "insiders" and "prominent boosters" when, if true, such people would hardly be sitting in the cheap seats with all the hoi polloi is too funny!

IMO, the folks who start these folks are either trolling or are just incredibly naive - perhaps both.

Oh, WOW! This is news! UConn to the ACC and bringing along a friend or two. Haven't head this one before. (sarcasm off)

Please, this is not politics where trial balloons are sent out by minions to determine if a proposal will "work" with the people. This is business where decisions are made by people that have solid data and partners that work together to determine whether they can make more money by adding teams. If/when any team(s) becomes viable, they will be invited to a P5 conference, plain and simple. If the conference will lose money (decrease in share value) they will not consider adding teams.

I don't see this for a lot of reasons. None are related to the schools mentioned.

The ACC brass learned its lesson. These discussion are kept very private until they are ready to make an announcement.

The ACCN has ample content.

Scheduling with 17 is a nightmare.

the list goes on....

The only problem with UCONN & Cincinnati is that they aren't Texas &/or ND. Those are the only teams that I can see the ACC expanding with.

The Cleveland Browns have a better shot at winning Super Bowl 51 than Texas and/or ND joining the ACC.

Forget Texas. It's not happening. Judging by Texas's effects on the B12, it wouldn't be a good thing if it did happen.

If ESPN says Tejas then Tejas it is.

Did I mention that there are about 8 million residences in Texas. That's about $10 Million per month income for the ACCN.
