The Coastal coaches might object to no longer having a FL team


in the division. If teams are going to swap divisions, then the simplest solution may be for VT to exchange places with BC and L'ville to swap places with Pitt.

Atlantic/Coastal
Syracuse-BC
Pitt-L'ville
VT-UVA
Wake-Duke
NC State-UNC
Clemson-GT
FSU-Da U

The ACC will probably never be able to perfectly balance the divisions because things are too fluid. More specifically over half of the teams can switch groups (see below) in any given year which makes it more difficult for a conference to build its brand in a particular sport around a core group of schools.

Assumed Groups
Powerhouse (aka the core group)
Almost Powerhouse
Middle of the Road
Needs a lot of Improvement
Cellar Dweller

I am comparing the ACC to how the Big Ten, Pac 12, and SEC built its brand in football around a core group of schools.
