David Teel ‏@DavidTeelatDP 1m
End game: #ACC added #NotreDame, swapped Maryland for Louisville and closed door. #helluvadeal


Also improved the TV deal, will likely get an ACC Network, and can renegotiate the deal in 5 years if FSU and Miami can pull their thumbs out of their butts by then and make the conference more valuable. John Swofford, despite the protestations of the internet, knows what he is doing.

Fowler reporting that because of the GOR, the TV deal will jump to $20M+ per school, more than the BIg XII makes.

Nope. I'm happy. I never doubted Swofford or the ACC.

Sorry, you've spent the last 2 years driving me insane with links and references to things written on WVU message boards and coded messages where random letters were capitalized and waving away everything I've said or written with "Dude tells me this will happen, and I believe him and your logic means nothing". I'm not letting you off that easily.

Corey Clark/TDO.com ‏@Corey_Clark 9m
Just met with FSU President Eric Barron. He says he is quite pleased with the new ACC deal.


Corey Clark/TDO.com ‏@Corey_Clark 5m
Barron on new TV deal: "Because of the schools that have been added we’re going to get a significant plus-up.”


Corey Clark/TDO.com ‏@Corey_Clark 2m
Barron: "Stability, added resources and the potential of the network --- those things in my view change the game."

This might be a good time for slappy to start the 2013 thread and leave all of the animosity behind.

Spoiler:
Fat chance that'll ever happen.

I'm almost done, don't worry. Just a little more chest-pounding left. Perhaps if NAN admits I was right it would speed up things.

Thankfully there are still some who believe Delany will act quickly before the GOR becomes binding. I was really bummed out at what appeared to be a mass surrender.

@MHver3: Fwiw I'm hearing ACC GOR will not be legally binding until next fiscal year. Delaney will poach before then.

Wvu insiders already passing along the inside info no one else is privy to. Because if there ever a time to jump to the B10 it's immediately after committing to a GOR, regardless of effective date.

The funny thing is, in the announcement, and even per Eric Barron, it is effective immediately.

Out of respect I'll keep my victory lap here in this thread. I swear I'm almost done.

http://www.dailypress.com/sports/teel-b ... full.story

The Big Ten was going to pilfer some combination of Virginia, North Carolina and Georgia Tech. Virginia Tech and North Carolina State were SEC-bound, with Florida State and Clemson headed to the Big 12.

The chatter was loud, it was incessant, and it was fueled by media, fans and rival leagues.

No matter that it was shallow, ill-informed and just plain wrong. Only one event could silence the speculation: a grant of media rights.


Of course, it still hasn't silenced the remaining True Believers, which just makes it all the sweeter. It's also great because FSU fans are absolutely miserable. I don't know whose tears I enjoy more.

I almost forgot about Greg Swaim in the shame tour.

Greg Swaim Show ‏@GSwaim 4h
This #ACC news is the best I've had in a while...it wouldn't bother me if I never had to talk expansion ever again!! #MoveOn


Sure, Greg. You were a nobody who gained a sliver of attention by saying you had sources saying Clemson and FSU were off to the Big 12. You'd be irrelevant if you hadn't jumped in bed with the WVU Reverse Cassandras. Who else promised a big move? I want to read their backtracking.

That's the thread you want as it has almost all the WVU "insiders" making insane proclamations within the past two days -- for example the dude proclaims on April 19 that the ACC is about to lose "4-6 schools minimum."

From Pantherlair, the Dude's 5 stages of grief:

Bargaining:
The Dude of WV þ @ theDudeofWV11m

WVU is fine. The Big 12 is a fine football conference. WVU will have more $ and better competition.. plus our new unis kick ***.

Denial:
The Dude of WV þ @ theDudeofWV 10m



Swofford mislead the ACC before...

Anger:
The Dude of WV þ @ theDudeofWV 9m



@ chrisrenfrow if @ Mengus22 or anyone else didn't think the ACC was close to collapse then they are a fool, because it was.




Depression:

The Dude of WV þ @ theDudeofWV6m

Big 12 should add BYU, UCONN, Cincy and USF.

Acceptance:
The Dude of WV þ @ theDudeofWV 4m



The Big 12 is now the dead conference walking.

It feels weird to fly the "Mission Accomplished" banner. After all of NAN's dire predictions and claims that he didn't believe the drivel he took from insiders, after the way these posts were treated like Pulitzer-level reporting, after debunking everything, after all of it...I feel a little empty. I may need to start a flame war with someone to fill the void in my life.

Wait, did I see someone now thinks the B1G will target Vandy? Maybe my life is still worth living. Come on, Dude- find a way to make this work so somehow it ends with the B1G poaching ACC teams. Don't give up the fight so easily! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
