Regional Rivalries are very important for the fans.


They are also important for the student athletes particularly regarding travel. WVU fits right into our Mid-Atlantic Region and brings instant rivalries with VT, Pitt, Louisville, and Syracuse as you state. With all of the West Virginia transplants living in the Carolinas, I believe they can develop for the North Carolina schools of the ACC as well as UVA. WVU is simply a good geographic fit, and they bring quality football which is a need.

The ACC has developed good regional rivalries in the Southern part of the conference. (FSU-Miami, FSU-Clemson, Clemson-GT). The North Carolina schools have rivalries with each other. It's stronger in basketball in North Carolina, but that's OK. WVU would really help the Mid-Atlantic. That leaves the Northeast where I think UConn would help if we are in a position to add two.
