  Do you know the ACC's logic behind its decision? -- VTHokie2000  01/29/2015 12:56PM
  That was a request from Craig Littlepage. -- HOO86  01/29/2015 7:02PM
  Byu situation hasn't been that successful -- Mercury  01/31/2015 08:38AM

  I really don't see why this is a problem. -- 133304Hokie  01/29/2015 03:08AM
  If we did that, would rather have WVU and UConn. -- HOO86  01/28/2015 5:39PM

  ND can pick their pod as well as #16 if they come along. ** -- Maroon Baboon  01/28/2015 8:45PM

  EXACTLY. It's much more fair to do it that way anyhow.  -- chuckd4vt  01/27/2015 1:38PM
  I proposed this as a way to get ND fully in. -- chuckd4vt  01/26/2015 1:09PM
  BTW, here's my proposed set up for this structure.  -- chuckd4vt  01/26/2015 1:15PM
  Now would that count as the 9th ACC game  -- Toastie Hokie  01/26/2015 2:43PM
