Did you notice how the UMD stuff happened quickly and quietly and there weren't daily leaks from internet message boards about how it was imminent, and that once it became legitimate, Brett McMurphy jumped on it?
But those UMD rumors have been around for 3 years. Same with Rutgers. Go back and re-read a lot of my posts in the realignment threads. I'd say eventually RU and UMD would be Big 10 targets and got mocked.
Some moves will and won't happen, but I think a lot of rumors have some truth to them. I think the Big 10 wants to get into the mid atlantic region and that is their ultimate goal, to get UVA and UNC. I think the SEC wants to do the same with VT and NC st. It might take time, but I think it happens.
And I also think the Southeast block of ACC school are very nervous and also disappointed in how the ACC has performed on the field. I think FSU and Clemson possibly will explore the Big XII and may make that move, and that is what will set the above off.
The ACC will always exist IMO, but it will be a mix of "leftovers" which will probably include Pitt (I think their only savign grace is if Big XII goes to 16 and wants them), Cuse, Uconn, BC, WF, Duke, Cincy, Louisville, USF, UCF, and maybe a few others. And of course ND as a BB only member.
