    And the final question
    Did you feel the same way when VT was in the Big East? Maybe you weren't around when VT was in the Big East, but here's another fact - VT left the BE because it was a good business decision on numerous levels when the ACC option was laid on the desk AND if another business option ever presents itself that's better than the ACC deal it will be a business decision to leave or stay, not an emotional one.

    Sorry I hurt your feelings.
    Not sure I totally agree. Put a different way, would players want to go to VT if it was still in the Big East? To be fair though, they would want to come to VT more if it was in say the SEC.

    If the ACC continues to win it's big game with a few more national titles sprinkled in there, the conference brand will be come much stronger and will be more of a recruiting plus.

    We seemed to have stronger/better teams when we were in the BE.
    Being in the SEC hasn't seem to help much for the teams at the bottom of the SEC.
    Unless the national championships are sprinkled around more than FSU, they won't mean a thing for the ACC as a whole or for any specific team, only for FSU.
    We, that being VT, can only take care of ourselves. FSU takes care of themselves and is again doing it very well. The ACC didn't do much to help FSU win the NC, they did it themselves and arguably in spite of the conference.
