I agree with you on some of what you said...


but would Clemson give up their academic standing in the college football world (membership in the ACC) if UConn or Navy joined the ACC? I seriously doubt it. Would FSU? Probably most likely that they would've seriously consider jumping to the Big 12 if the price was right. Clemson is very proud of their ACC membership and they are one of the original 7 charter members. They ain't going anywhere. FSU has always been a concern but their bark is worse than their bite.

What interests me is if the ACC would've taken WVU over Louisville if both were still in the Big East? IMHO, WVU would've been a no-brainer but you never know what's going on in the minds of the academic snobs in the ACC. Both schools are pretty much the same academically even though I'm willing to bet that WVU's top 10-25% of their undergraduates are smarter than U of L's top 10-25%.
