Exactly. I believe in order for those dominoes to start to fall


2 of the "Big 3" (Clemson, FSU, Da U) to leave the ACC. Once that happens then I don't think the third one is too far behind. The next group of schools would start to explore their options once the 2 "Big 3" schools leave. However, I am not sure they would be that quick to pull a UMD especially if the school is more a "basketball school." Once all the "Big 3" schools are gone, then all the "football schools" and maybe a couple top "basketball schools" would be in a panic and looking to jump ship.

One possibility the "football schools" may explore is forming their own conference (call it Metro 2.0) with the idea they would get the ACC's seat at the P5 table. You may even see some "basketball schools" that happen to be good in football join this conference. If enough schools from the same conference join this "Metro 2.0," then the "Metro 2.0" would be able to earn an automatic bid for the NCAA Tournament. At least I think that is the right interpretation of the current bylaws.
