I can't refute what you say about wanting "name" schools

in each division, but I don't believe the school presidents think about it that way. I think the people who actually make these decisions see themselves as all generally equal institutions and that other considerations carry more weight. I think, at least in the ACC, the decision makers would consider regional proximity and travel distances as well as traditional rivalries. That would put VT in the North with the old BE schools. That's why I worry about "getting what we ask for" in realignment. All I really want is to play everyone more frequently. If pods does it, then I'm OK with that. If rotating Divisional membership accomplishes it, I'm OK with that too. If the best we can do is eliminate the cross-over rival, then I can live with that. Just don't fill our schedule with BC, Syr., Pitt, UVA, etc. to the exclusion of the southern football schools.
