If I was the judge, I don't care who voted for that amount or against it, it would be difficult to argue that the amount is not punitive and excessive (3 years of the sports operating expenses for members of a financially struggling conference). For that reason, I feel it will trimmed down to $20,000,000 - $22,000,000 range as lesser amounts in other conferences were bargined down in the past. If so, that might give FSU and Clempson enough time to raise enough donations for such a matter to approach the Big XII for membership, money in hand. If FSU & Clempson approach the Big XII, they will be let in. That essentially kills the ACC and the VA & NC schools will approach the B1G & SEC for homes.

I wouldn't be surprised if a Judge completely threw it out. Maryland went on record voting against it and promptly found someplace else to go. All Maryland would be responsible for is the exit fee prior to this lastest increase. This would set precedent for FSU also, but Clemson would be screwed as they voted for it.

Because no one wants UCONN. THe point being that they will be there until the ACC calls them and says come on over..babeee..let's bounce. No worries...she is sitting by the phone..just waiting...

Louisville might have gone to the Big 12 if they called. The Big 12 should have moved. They lost out.

Now, I wonder if this move by the ACC isn't just going to piss off the Big 10 again...as Kentucky is right next to big 1o country.

Because if you take into account the basketball and football teams Louisville is better overall. And if you think Louisville's academics are questionable, UConn can't even play in the NCAA tournament this year because of how bad their scores are.

Best move ACC could make right now.

When/if Notre Dame is forced to join a conference, the ACC will take them and UConn.

So the "ACC" will have Louisville, Syracuse, Pitt, BC, VT, and Miami? Nah, they're not the new Big East at all. I mean when nearly half of the schools come from the Big East, that means nothing, right?

Yea because the Louisville Market is such a thriving metropolis to get TV views in.

I think the success of this years team locked up that they won't be joining a conference any time soon (NBC will renew the TV deal with them, they pulled in great ratings this year)
Isn't it weird every year they are close to renewal they have a good team (wasn't the last time the Brady Quinn years?)

Valued at around 36 mil, making around 23 mil in profit.

That's good for basketball but then you have teams like ND and Texas who are valued at over 100 mil and profit more than UL's basketball team.
Add that with their football team that doesn't make much, their athletic program is not as valuable as people think (although I sensed sarcasm in the post I quoted)

I agree with you. The only way ND joins a conference is if a conference affiliation is required to win a national championship.

Seems like the Notre Dame/ACC link up might have set the Big 10 about the destruction of the ACC.
