I'd be really surprised if UVA left, for numerous reasons.

If they do, you can kiss the ACC goodbye, it would just be a matter of time.

Yeah right. Their alumni will not have it, period.

This is UVA we're talking about, they think even Wake Forest's fans are a little unclean.

And no UVa fan would ever be caught dead going to State College for a football game. Unless they are de-loused and decontaminated afterwards.
Haha - they play AT Penn State next year.

Here's the link. This is all over TBS and GCC. I have no idea who this guy's sources are, but I believe he has been fairly accurate in the past.

Maryland will never have to pay the ACC 50 million....exit fee is unresaonable.

Probably Georgia Tech is # 16 to Big 10 after UVA.

That's not what he's talking about.

He means UGA MUST play those teams yearly.

If they do start paying players in the future in say...football only, then football programs need to be completely separated from the universities. Universities do not need to be associated with paid sports.

Haha, you act like UVa fans care about traveling to games. I go to UVa for grad school right now and haven't been to any football games since my first year, because of how mediocre the atmosphere is. Soccer moms aren't going to East Lansing, sure, but they're not going to Clemson or Tallahassee either.

I find your last comment the most amusing, considering UVa and PSU are in the middle of a home/home series.

Title IX will prevent universities from paying players.

This is correct. Football is just not that important to them. Most of them would rather spend Saturday afternoon in the library, which is why they are one of the best academic schools in the country.

All hail the almighty dollar.
I understand what you are saying but your OOC games are usually teams that are not natural to your fan base so I don't see the big deal with adding 2 more teams. UNC and Duke would be my first choice. The "money talks" statement has changed to " money doesn't talk, it screams out loud"..

If football separates itself from universities you might as well kiss every other sport goodbye except a handful of basketball programs.

Also if some lawyer could get around Title IX to pay football players not every program would be able to afford that.

Feminist groups would literally shit a brick if a lawyer found a way to circumvent Title IX, they would probably go as far to get them debarred.

If this happens then its awful for USC. We need North Carolina & Virginia to ourselves in the SEC. We can go into those states and sale the SEC to state's with ACC schools in them.

Why any Gamecock would think this is a positive for us is beyond me.
