    Let me answer this question with a question. How many 80,000 plus stadiums does the ACC have? The fan base is key to football success which is in turn key to atheletic program finacial success. I don't know excactly, but Miami, FSU, Clemson, and VT are likely the only ones who come close. You can put on all the light blue or red paint, plant shrubs and make things pretty, but that does not add numbers to the fan base. An additional 20K fans is $1M or more per game. The ACC schools aren't serious yet.

    This is probably closer to reality than the ACC's Presidents' letter, IMHWPO.

    It's just a statement, but I do hope that the ACC will hold together for a few more years. 50 million to leave will be tough on some schools. Maryland had to make this move, and I really hated to see this.

    If this works out somehow, and all we lost was Maryland, but we got Louisville in their place... I'll be pleased with the transaction. Never did like Maryland.

    I think it was more of a message to the Turtles that the rest of the ACC expects them to pay up in full as they leave and not to let the door hit them where the "moon don't shine."

    ACC Commissioner John Swofford and his beloved UNC-CHEAT is the ACC's Trojan Horse. Member schools need to wake up and identify UNC-CHEAT for what it really is: a cancer within the member system.
