The 3 (possibly 4) teams added by the Big Ten have all been land grant universities, PSU, Nebraska, Maryland (and possibly Rutgers). The SEC expansion teams were both land grants aTm and Missouri. Only three non land grants in the B1G (Northwestern, Indiana, Michigan) and only four non land grants in SEC (Ole Miss, Vandy, Alabama, S. Carolina). ACC is expanding with non land grants, VPI is the only land grant that has been added to the ACC and they did not really want us. After the departure of Maryland there is only two other land grants besides VPI left in the ACC (NCState and Clemson). It appears to me that the conferences tend to add "like" universities when expanding. IMO, VPI needs to do what is necessary to try and join our university "brethren" in the SEC, we just do not fit in the "mold" of an ACC school. Just my $.02.
