Surprised no one is talking about this on here. So When you have Maryland leaving the ACC and Rutgers leaving the Big East that is going to create two open vacancies. Does Troy fill one or do we fill another when the carousel starts back up?

Fill another when carousel starts. However, Big East for football only might work.

I could definitely see Troy there, it'd be a good conference for us, IMO. Go all sports, Basketball we'd be at the bottom, but Baseball would be a good schedule. Not sure about the other sports though

Big East has no seat at the Big Boy Table anymore. Sunbelt is somewhat equal to those guys now. The BE is basically turning into a revised C-USA from the 90's. Don't look for Boise to leave the MWC. And then the fall of the BE is just around the corner. Sunbelt is the new thing and will survive.

Merge the ACC and Sunbelt, sounds like a down step for the ACC, but think about the teams and the footprint the "super conference" could have

Funny how Saban believes in a more "centralized" Division I that would further segregate the "big boys," but he doesn't mind filling spots in his schedule to play what he considers lower level teams.

Maryland was a founding charter member of the ACC. Never thought they would leave. The cease fire is over. The arms race continues.
