Funny, they haven't received a cent from the ACC. SInce their formal departure, the ACC has refused to send one bit of revenue sharing money to them. THerefore they got nothing for the bowl, nothing from TV, nothgin for expenses for travel to acc events. They just get an empty envelope. THis loss of revenue has really hurt them. My guess for the law suite is IT IS REALLY HURTING NOW.
Heard some stuff about PSU. Indiana? that's interesting.
I think the Maryland not being a cultural fit in the ACC is overblown. Every ACC school has bitched about the Carolina mafia over the years. The terps jumped because they were broke and had new leadership with Big 10 contacts. They'll probably be broke again in 10 years. Real beneficiaries of MD to Big 10 are the scads of Big 10 alumni in the DC area, they all get another home game.
I think this proves that GoR aren't water-tight. Otherwise why would ESPN "suggest" for the ACC to raid a another conference with GoR.
my impression is that GOR are water-tight, however..........................i read somewhere on the internet (and therefore, it's true, LOL) that the B1G GOR is up for renewal in either 2015 or 2016, which would be a window of opportunity if PSU and/or others did want to move. PSU is the only one that i could see being intrigued by the ACC. i would think our financial package would be pretty competitive with the SEC or B1G with PSU and ND as 15 and 16 and an ACC network. pure speculation on my part.
