    I must say, this is one that doesn't make much sense for me. They are so far away from everybody else they would likely never develop anything like a rivalry within that conference. Even if Carolina were to join them, I can't see it. But we're long past the day when geography had anything to do with conference affiliation. So what do I know?

    Write its own ticket eh? Is that why Maryland and GT are getting offers from the B1G Ten and you guys aren't? B1G Ten and SEC want schools who can fill their football stadiums. If the past decade is any indication, you guys would have to put the world's largest cheeseball and a wine fountain in kenan stadium just to get YOUR fans in the gate. Getting them to their seats is another challenge in itself. Good luck! ROFL!!!!

    Typical State College mentality! Lol! Carolina holds the ACC together. Listen to the experts if you don't believe me. The 2 teams that most conferences would want are UNC and FSU. UNC can write its own ticket anytime it wants but as of right now staying loyal to the ACC seems to be the goal.
    Still can't understand why State fans even have an opinion on these matters. State College has offered nothing to the ACC via athletics or academics in how long? Such a jealous fanbase! Please argue the facts and tell me what SCC offers. Thanks!

    It would be a big deal if UNC and Duke got split up. That is probably the best rivalry in college sports. I don't want to see that happen. 2 of my favorite days of the year.

    Death warrant? LOL! Oh no, how on Earth will we survive without the self-proclaimed "flagship"? I've never heard that Walmart subsidized any of the ACC's operating budget, so I think we'll be just fine. As for UVAg, who gives a sh!t?

    Losing those particular schools would only strengthen ACC football (despite both schools' highly anomalous wins over the Wolfpack this year), and probably basketball as well, since it appears Roy can't recruit anymore and there is no decent replacement for him in sight. Adios!

    Could propel UNC and UVa to SEC and sign the death warrant of the ACC.
