Oh and a couple more things to dwell on. Louisville appears, especially of late to be the better team in Kentucky. I wonder if the SEC wouldnt kick Kentucky out and take in Louisville, remembering the gentlemens agreement (which I still do not trust). The other thing remember HOW Virginia Tech ended up getting into the ACC. The Virginia State Government had a hand in that if I recall and if Virginia Tech was to leave the ACC then its brother team Virginia would most likely have to be taken with it. I dont see the Virginia Government allowing one of their teams to go and the other being left out in the cold. This would be a major hang up for the Big 10 should they elect to take the Cavaliers. Then you would be looking at a mess and it would be back to the drawing board for the Big 10, so who would they then take; if FSU is there, Clemson, UCONN, NC (where does that leave NC State), there is a lot of baggage that is attached with certain teams in these Conferences. In regards to Boston College, which has not done much since joining the ACC, I would believe that they would fall into the catagory of Not Qualified by ESPN and FOX. Something else as mentioned in a previous post, with regard to the SEC; they would not want to be Out Done by BOTH Conferences, the Big 10 and the Big 12. So I would look for a move by them to try and BLOCK (if they could) the taking of major teams (i.e. FSU, Miami, Clemson, Georga Tech, etc). So just how would they do that, Stopping Conferences from getting stronger, if they did not elect to take those schools?
There is a lot to think about and I believe that when it comes down to it the "Gentlemens agreement" will go right out the window. Its almost like the NFL Draft, do they take the number one pick or pass to get the number 12 Team on the list or take a free agent left hanging out there; Cincy or UCONN for example.
It will be interesting to watch if nothing else but just to see who is left standing. Perhaps Oliver Luck knows something in regards to maybe the Big 12 taking in PITT and Louisville, Syaracuse for eastern teams in the Big 12 (or are not qualified by ESPN and FOX).
I think again that the spoiler that changes a lot of things (voiding gentlemens agreements and etc) is going to be Notre Dame. Remember they elected not to join the ACC till 2014 (this allows time for the Court thing to be played out) and then we sit back and watch the fur fly.
Have a great day today and a better one tomorrow everyone, stay healthy.
