I totally agree. ACC needs to add UConn to solidify New York market. I hope ACC send the message to UConn that they will be added when Notre Dame becomes the full member.

The Cincinnati metro area has a greater population and more TV sets than the entire state of West Virginia, and way, way better HS football. UC has much better academics, too.

West Virginia is the kingpin of a state, nonetheless a small one, and Cincinnati will always play second fiddle to tOSU.

That's true, but then, according to that criterion, Pitt will always play second fiddle to PSU. There are plenty of states that have multiple major universities, often in the same athletic conference. Just among ACC states, which is the kingpin and which plays second (or third or fourth) fiddle in Virginia, North Carolina, Kentucky, South Carolina, Georgia, or Florida?

What about Michigan, Indiana and Illinois, all with multiple schools in the B1G? Which schools are the kingpins and which play second fiddle?

What about California, Arizona, Oregon, and Washington, all with multiple schools in the PAC? Which schools are the kingpins and which play second (or third) fiddle?

What about Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas, all with multiple schools in the Big XII?

And on and on...

I am just worried that Notre Dame will drag its heels on full membership and insist on independence for as long as possible (which will make the ACC stand pat). That really does leave the B1G in a position to silently sweep in and grab UConn somewhere in the future when it makes sense for them. (I have said it before, but UConn is a solid grab for the B1G as UConn basketball speaks for itself and UConn football will rebound. The B1G also now sponsors hockey and UConn is one of the few FBS schools that can help them grow that sport as well - they only have six schools participating in it now and it makes for additional content on the Big Ten Network.)

If the Big 12 grabs Cincy and the B1G grabs UConn, then the ACC will be left with slim pickings for additional schools.

Swofford should maximize the amount of the NYC market share while he still can!

I may be in the minority but I think the combo of ND football and Duke hoops is a bigger draw in NYC than adding Rutgers or UConn would have been.

And I say that a 'Cuse fan that wants to see UConn in the ACC.

RE: GTS' ACC Map
If Big Jim Delany and Company start casting lustful eyes towards UConn it would be in the ACC's best interest to do everything in their power to make that union happen. Not only does it forever rid us of having to hear about the pending "revitalization" of football power from a school, but it weakens an already declining football product that much more making it that much easier for us to pass them.

UConn in the B1G would hurt recruiting for BC, Cuse, and Pitt more than if UConn was in the ACC! Recruits would rather line up against big boys like Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State, Nebraska, and Wisconsin versus Clemson, FSU, Duke, and Wake.

As for UConn, haters gonna hate. Football will be "revitalized"! 03-talktothehand

RE: GTS' ACC Map
No to UCONN. The no only gets louder the further south you go of DC.

I can come to grips with the less than elegant map given that I want the ACC to be the Pac-12 of the east coast. The Pac-12 map isn't exactly beautiful right now either, and has 4 land-locked teams in a coastal league. Just add Cincinnati and Notre Dame, move to pods, and call it a day.

ACC Atlantic North
Boston College
Syracuse
Pittsburgh
Notre Dame

ACC Atlantic South
Louisville
Cincinnati
Virginia Tech
Virginia

ACC Coastal North
Wake Forest
North Carolina
NC State
Duke

ACC Coastal South
Clemson
Georgia Tech
Florida State
Miami


If I were God, I'd probably bump Louisville, Cuse, BC, and Notre Dame and bring in Tennessee, Maryland, Penn State, West Virginia, and South Carolina.

ACC Atlantic North
Maryland
Pittsburgh
Penn State
West Virginia

ACC Atlantic South
Virginia
North Carolina
NC State
Duke

ACC Coastal North
Georgia Tech
Tennessee
Wake Forest
Virginia Tech

ACC Coastal South
Florida State
Miami
Clemson
South Carolina

If you are counting on ND becoming a member of the ACC for football as your strategy for UConn getting an ACC bid, I am afraid you are setting yourself up for disappointment.

UConn needs to sell the ACC on its own merits, not try to ride ND's coat tails, waiting for a contingent event that is not likely to ever happen.

Ride the coat tails of the football team that we beat IN South Bend and almost always beat in basketball? 03-lmfao

Anyway, if you know anything about realignment, you know that conference tend to take teams in multiples of two to keep their divisions balanced. That was all that I was suggesting.

I don't expect Notre Dame to do anything but be a parasite to whatever conference they are in at the time. If the ACC likes that, good for them. Quite frankly, I am happy to finally NOT be in a conference with Notre Dame.

The program was "vitalized" and will be revitalized again. You will know that they are back when they spank your team (the one that you refuse to acknowledge).
