    Which is probably what every ACC AD would be saying to both.
    Q "Why do you like Duke, you didn't even go there." A "Because my art school didn't have a basketball team."

    Link works for me. He says FSU and Clemson have approached sec about joining per reliable sources.

    FSU is dreaming of days long gone by. PS..since it isn't working for me, who is "he"?

    Just for fun let’s imagine the immediate repercussions if Clemson and FSU bolted. You’d have to think Miami, VT, GT, Pitt and maybe BC might start checking the exits. Good times.

    I think unc and ncsu would be jumping too.

    Duke would be on the boat alone with one oar...

    At least we won't have a guaranteed football loss against Clemson!

    Maybe we could reach a .500 in-conference record!

    If we have two other teams in the conference, it seems a good goal.

    Like I said in another thread, this is literally the worst possible time for Cut to have run Duke Football back into the ground. If we were still respectable, we might have some bargaining power or an argument that we'd contribute something. Now we're just hoping for charity handouts in football.

    Wonder if there's been any exploration into Duke jumping ship to the Big 10 or SEC, maybe with UNC. I'd be disappointed if we were just hoping for the ACC to hold together.

    Three ways to win - be first, be smarter, or cheat.
    Duke 5 - UNC 4*

    Look on the bright side with 3 teams we could play a full home and home schedule in basketball.

    to where? trying to jump on this AAC/B12 mega...thing? The B10 sure don't want them.

    I'd tell ya, but then I'd have to kill ya
    I dunno. I read this week that the ACC has it's members' grant of rights locked up until 2036. No idea of buyout language, but OU and UT only have to wait until 2025 (or buyout earlier departure). And why would you negotiate with any members who are leaving to lower the buyout? It's blowing up the conference.

    Bottom line for me, it's just another reason to leave sports behind in my life.
