That would seem to make sense, wouldn't it?Does the ACC see fit to add one more school, maybe without football, to get to 16? Georgetown or Villanova??
Nobody would leave the Big 10 for the ACC, let alone a football school. It is a huge step down financially. The Big 10 would have to kick out Penn St first for this to happen IMO.The ACC's prime target will be Penn State, followed by Rutgers.
I've seen a few people already mentioning UMass to the BE on facebook...Look for UMass to make their Final Four run as a member of the Big East.
Basketball is looking so weak there that I think they might consider UMass even if their football is weak right now. Not that it will guarantee anything, but it might appease the likes of UConn, Rutgers, Villanova and Temple for a bit.I've seen a few people already mentioning UMass to the BE on facebook...
Thankfully most of them also involved a "..wait, no. Temple, you sure you want out of the A10 still?" at the end.
We won't be winning football games any time soon, so the only way we get into the Big East is if they get desperate and the MAC kicks us out for being too terrible.
