I am fine with having a minimum stadium requirement

However, I do wonder though if schools (i.e. VT, UVA, GT, Syracuse, maybe Pitt, etc.), who currently don't meet the stadium requirements, could afford the expansion cost? I ask because some of the stadiums are currently configured in such a way that it could end up being very expensive or impossible to expand in order to meet the requirements. Plus, Pitt doesn't even own the rights to Heinz Field which currently seats 68.4K. Will the Steelers and/or the City of Pittsburgh allow Pitt to expand the stadium's capacity (assuming the school is willing to pay for it)? If not, then what are Pitt's other options?

I guess I am wondering if the ACC could eventually set the minimum number too high to the point the ACC doesn't have enough members to qualify as a conference under the ACC bylaws. If that is the case, then it could mean the ACC loses most (maybe all?) of its automatic bids to the various NCAA tournaments. Based on what happened to the Great West Conference, I would assume that would eventually spell the end for the ACC as a conference.
