Understand fully. You feel Swoff & Co. are OK. I do not.

You think it's no big deal apparently that VT has lagged and will continue to lag behind even middle tier SEc and B1G schools when it comes to conference payouts and revenue. I do not.

So you are in the Swofford's cool and everything is fine camp. I am not. I've been paying attention enough to know that is not so. You can poo poo USAToday figures all you want, but those are public figures. And one needn't be an accountant to figure out the SEc and B1G are doing much better for their schools than the ACC just be objectively viewing the chart.

Furthermore, the fact that Maryland was choking in debt while in the ACC is not indicative of the ACC being a well run conference. In fact, it's quite a big bullet point that suggests it is not. Additionally, the fact that Maryland is now in a new league and is already making more money from sports than much more successful ACC schools, schools w/ much more engaged fanbases, also does not suggest the ACC is a well run league.

So I suppose the FACT that even mediocre athletics programs from those leagues make tens of millions of dollars more from sports is no big deal to you? Gamecocks and Hawkeyes should not be rolling in a ton more dough than Hokies. Maryland should never even approach our figures either. And you can suggest we should simply continue to gouge our students more than most other P5 schools. And you can suggest that we should focus on recruiting thousands more donors to catch up. However, the easiest place to begin would be to make up for those tens of millions by demanding more from our league.
