Well the ACC just got bigger and much better as they have added two more teams. The ACC announced Sunday that its council of presidents unanimously voted to accept the two schools from the Big East. The move increases the ACC’s membership to 14 and sends the Big East scrambling to replace two of its cornerstone programs. The Big East’s exit fee is $5 million, and schools wanting to leave must provide 27 months’ notice.
My take on the move is the ACC got much stronger and the Big East will be hurt by this move. The problem is we have two many teams leaving conferences and jumping to other conferences. The NCAA is going to eventually have to step in because it is not fair to the fans of these teams or the sport as a whole. Jumping from one conference to another for the best deal is not the way to do it. Something has to change or a team will move again when they find a better deal.
