There is no way as presently constituted that the Big East stays relevant as a football league, they will surely have teams pillaged from them if nothing is done. The ACC needs more teams to stay relevant. Match made in heaven. Make this conference a 20 team football conference, consisting of the ACC, plus Pitt, Cuse, WVU, South Florida, ND (who can't stay independent in this landscape), UConn, Cincy, and Louisville. Yea, I know that's not a great haul for ACC football, but their officials agree to adding the weaker teams, because of the bait thrown their way in turn. The ACC is, at its core, a Basketball league. This is where the bait comes into play. For adding the weaker football teams, they get to add 4 of the Big East's non football teams, Gtown, St. John's, Nova, and Marquette.. Making this a 24 team basketball confererence, divide them into 4, six team divisions and you have huge revenue from TV rights and renewed passion in fans whom are passionate about their teams already. Could you imagine a scenario where Gtown, UNC, Cuse, Duke, Uconn, and MD, are battling on a consistent basis and sometimes twice a year? That's big time in my mind.
