    That's what makes this board perfect! I'm glad Will and Chris thought of creating it! (Not to mention it gets these discussions off the football board.)

    For it to be "mutually beneficial", the SEC would have to trade a school of equal value to the ACC for VT. Is the SEC going to give the ACC Kentucky or Tennessee? Or maybe Auburn? I highly doubt it.

    Mutually beneficial merely means both parties benefit. It doesn't imply a zero sum trade. It's possible for the ACC to benefit by losing VT and picking up another school that school doesn't need to come from the SEC. See the Maryland/Louisville realignment as an example.

    That makes absolutely no sense. Why would the ACC give up the rights to broadcast all of VT's games for the next 15 years to the SEC and get nothing from them in return? Even if the ACC can replace VT with Texas, the ACC isn't just going to say "don't worry about that whole grant of rights thing" if VT leaves for the SEC. They'll take Texas (or whoever they can get) and still keep VT's media rights for the duration of the GoR that was signed.

    You're acting like the ACC has control over its members' decision making. They don't.

    Now you're demonstrating my point that the ACC would benefit, which you also said "makes absolutely no sense."
