I would've liked to see the ACC add more larger public land-grant universities since the conference will only have 3 once Maryland leaves next year. The ACC is the complete opposite of the Big 10 and SEC in selecting its membership. The ACC appears to have an aversion for large public land-grant universities. Only Tech and NC State are large (over 20,000 undergrads) land-grant universities. Although Clemson is a land-grant university, it sometimes seems like a large private college like UVa and UNC. The ACC just added another public university that fits that bill with the addition of Pittsburgh.
It's interesting that Rutgers was one of the last original Big East Football members to leave. Even though they're a large land-grant university, they weren't attractive enough to be picked earlier like Miami, Tech, BC, Pitt, Syracuse, and Notre Dame.
