    WV is not on the Atlantic Coast

    I totally agree with you, BG. The expansion was really about $$$ and I don't think that panned out. WVa would be a great addition to the ACC.

    If we can beat Alabama on 9-5-09, we could have a great confidence builder. If not, I hope that it is close. Just hope that it is better than last year in Charlotte.

    ^^^I really wish Swofford had gone after WVa instead of BC. They're bigger-time in football and basketball, and it made more sense regionally and culturally. This whole "Boston media market" reason is a dud. Boston don't give a rat's behind about college sports. The "exposure" doesn't exist.

    And then ECU would slip into WVa's spot in the Big East. Makes sense to me.

  • StunGunn Jul 29, 2009

    ^^^I agree. Part of the ACC expansion idea was expanding the market and ECU wouldn't do that, but to me it never made sense to bring in BC - no disrespect towards BC, but geographically it didn't make sense. The ACC has been a southern conference and to go all the way up the coast just doesn't cut it. I think ECU football is good enough to be in the ACC, but you're right about having five schools in one state.

    That will never happen.
    ECU would bring nothing to the ACC. Plus, 8 other members of the ACC might object to having 5 schools within one state.

  • StunGunn Jul 28, 2009

    ^^^Yes, I'd have to say that Skip has ECU headed in the right direction. We've had some good games with ECU - they're a good team - I think they should be in the ACC.

    The ACC and Big East are both afraid of just three letters...E C U

    Just like Blackbeard haunts the coast, the pirates will live on forever. You can behead a pirate but that Pirate Ghost will never die!!!

    Mark - for a State guy you're optimistic about Carolina's season. Duke has taken us to the wire, so I wouldn't consider that a definite win. We also can't seem to win in the state of Virginia for some reason, so VT will be tough. I do like your breakdown though and hope you're right.

  • WufSkins Jul 28, 2009

    I wouldn't throw Pitt in the "know you can win" category. I see both State and Carolina competing for 8-10 wins this year.

    I agree completely.
