that said, i'd rather petition the NCAA to allow us to go to a single table 15 team lineup (9 game schedule) with no divisions if ND really wanted to come on board (which i'm still not holding my breath on)...
"This no more resembles that than something unlike something else resembles that." - Loosely quoting PHNC
If the ACC wants a non-football school in the DC market, then it might have to look at The George Washington University.
WV can do it. Maybe Cincy or UConn could as well. The others would be revenue losers. Looking ahead, UCF & USF are huge schools that will have giant alumni bases a generation from now. Right now... not so much. If Miami continues to slide in competitiveness, there may be room for another Florida school. The U is very small and relies on their FB cred to attract TV viewers from outside their market. If WV is available, that means that the BIG XII has dissolved, so the best candidates are out west.
As for The B1G wanting Iowa State, I can't imagine why. They don't want UConn either. The entire state is within the YES Network footprint, which the B1G views as their BTN footprint. Best bet: Stand pat and wait for the BIG XII to flop.
