I like UVa as a permanent cross-rival, but...


Wake and BC. yuck. In a 16-team ACC with ND and WVU, I would love for Tech to play UVa, WVU, Miami, NC State, Clemson and FSU every year, if the divisions and cross-rivals would work out. But it would be impossible to do, especially since the original charter members + UVa + FSU + Notre Dame would get higher preference in divisional alignment and cross-rivals. I fear Tech is stuck with BC forever.

I think a divisionless model with permanent sticky rivals for each university can work. If only the P5 powers that be would accept a divisionless model.
