    So leaving 1 year early is worth 2.5 million. Syracuse will make that much extra by getting to the ACC.
    I don't always talk to UVa Grads but when I do I always order the Large Fries.

    The sick part is that the football schools will get almost none of the money and they should get most of it.

    Maybe Pitt is playing hardball in the negotiations.

    Pitt is suing the BigEast, something 'Cuse refused to do. it will be interesting to see which strategy works better...

    The BE is the only conference were entrance and exit fees are one of the major income lines. Heck, maybe the actual top income item.

    Actually I can see them and Pitt getting better. Remember it has been hard to recruit for those guys in Lil East. Plus their academics are fine. Reason why WVU does ok. They take anyone. Wait a second the CUSE kicked WVU's ass. Oh and two years in row. LOL peeps I think Pitt will be fine and Cuse decent. Thing is will their fanbases become stronger? At least more energy. Duke is ACC issue not these two.

    The Cuse got a real bargain. They had an advantage probably subtly threatening to join Pitt in suing or working it out without litagation fees. I know Pitt didn't want to sue but felt forced to push the agenda when the Big East stopped negotiations with the two of them after Marinatto was canned. Hope the Pitt announcement comes soon.
