    UConn and Louisville both seem like good fits for the ACC. Cincinnati would be alright, but I'm not crazy about the idea of adding South Florida. I really don't mean to sound like a snob, but I don't think South Florida quite makes the cut. I may just be ignorant, but USF seems like kind of an obscure school; it sounds a bit like adding Elon or Winthrop.

    Either of these would add to the ACC's basketball reputation. Louisville would be a good addition because they are good in both basketball and football.

    Women's B-Ball does not make $$$. Not to mention not that nobody cares. I don't think I or anyone I know has EVER watched an entire game. Just flip by to see score, or just wait to see what happened in the news. If your team wins you then bust the other team's fans chops just for kicks & giggles.
    I agree about the men's side, but I don't like uCoNNvict.

    Also talks are currently in-process with 3rd and 4th choice - South Florida and Cincinnati.
