Why? do NAVY bring more money
Every option cannot be based on personal like, patriotism, fan base. For an conference its all about bringing in more revenue from TV rights. Its not charity anymore.

and for the ACC, like any conference, to get a 1 million dollar jump, they have to find a school that can produce 15 million more in media rights. (equating to 1 million per school.)

the academies do not do that.

I want which ever coach is in charge to do well. That means VT football has done well.

TSL Podcast with Justin and the campaign for 400 really put things together
I se university NOW united to partner to raise the revenue and overall support for athletics, lot match the success the rest of the University has achieved over the last 5-6 years. the Campaign for 400 really open the eyes what was the TRUE requirement for athletics, and frankly looking like VT been coasting on success since 2013. (all seemed fine).

coach came into frankly a larger challenge than was perceived, Also he appears to be a guy that dont make excuses, and just hunkers down with not much external conversation. (that didnt help)

I see a buzz in him and his staff, I haven't see since his first year. (everyone knows the perceived pressure he is working with, but he looks like he knows he's got the backing of Whit and most important the senior leadership in Burress. thats so important.

Keep up, the Podcast, that informs so many fans who, think this 1999 in a timewarp

2022 Softball Roster Posted
As suspected, Softball will be running it back with the vast majority of last year's roster intact, and some additions.

A few notes:

• No numbers yet for the incoming Freshman class. Alison Carter, Rachel Castine, Bre Peck, and Ari Wright all listed as Utility. Catie Hopkins listed as Infield, Emma Lemley as Pitcher (obviously).

• Darby Trull listed as a Graduate Student, with other members of that class all as Seniors – Keely Rochard, Mackenzie Lawter, and Kayleigh Addington.

• Addition: Ally Repko (Graduate Student from Elon; infielder who was first-team All-CAA and batted .340 last year)

• Departures: Cana Davis (transferred to Florida Gulf Coast), Kaylee Hewitt (transferred to UTEP), Keara Napoli (graduated), Rebecca Ludowig (just isn’t listed on this year’s roster; appeared in 10 games as a pinch runner last season)

• As it stands now, the roster has 29 players.

ACC should be working a ND-USC angle right now. Take in any additional
members they want to make it work. Figure out a schedule.

You are correct.

None.
I'd like to see the guy who is already here succeed. Buyouts are expensive, and I'd rather that donor money go to facilities and staffing.

Quit lobbing toxic crap onto the board, just so you can sit back and giggle at the responses.

UNCheat and Duke didn't vote for anyone.
That's why Casteen held a veto over expansion. No VT, no Miami, the team Swofford lusted after.

If either 'cheat or Duke had not voted against the 3 headed monster (Miami, Syra, Fredo), we would not have made the cut.

I used to think that mattered...but I think its overblown in reality
I didn't just stay in a Holiday Inn Express once or twice, I am an actual African-American. At the end of the day I really don't think most kids care at all about the color of their coach. I watched with great interest when a guy like Randy Shannon or Willie Taggert gets a shot. While they were "qualified", I wouldn't call either of them a good HC, and while they recruited fine, I never saw kids gravitate towards their programs because they specifically wanted to play for a black coach.

With that said James Franklin on the other hand like him or not is really good coach. While we have lost head to head battles against him, I really don't think Fu's lack of street cred is the reason we missed out on those kids. In short, I don't think you need be black to win over the 757 or Richmond.

Whatever happened was said to split the team and the three were let go "indefinitely for the season"...all three sought to play elsewhere.

It wouls not bother me if the top 32 teams separated themselves and VT ...
... wasn't among the "chosen ones".

There would be a lot of good interesting football to be played amongst the "commoners".

Of course I would go one step further. Basketball and all other sports would be separated by the football 32 and the commoners. And there would be little or zero games of any kind between the "32" and the "commoners".

That doesn't mean the GOR can't be terminated some other way.
Note that section 3.4 of those Bylaws makes reference to a separate Grant of Rights Agreement. We need to see that agreement to understand what other termination conditions exist.

posted in the thread Can't post it because it is blocking me for some reason by goldendomer on the Conference Realignment Board 8 hours ago
The double standards in our legal system have become so obvious that I
have no respect for the federal judiciary any more. Large corporations that basically own our government and can terrorize citizens who post photos that merely "look like" a copyrighted photo. People have to jump through hoops and pay money to defend themselves when they've done nothing wrong. The tech companies and auto companies make it very difficult to repair their products yourself. They have gamed the patent system and found a way to restrain trade and rip off their customers.

Yet I can't imagine how ESPN's broadcasting model isn't in violation of antitrust statutes and that someone hasn't tortiously interfered in the B12's contract. It might sound like Bowlsby is whining but I think he has a sound legal argument. Any VT fan who went through the ACC expansion circus should feel quite bad for the leftover B12 teams that might get relegated to some outcast league. Kansas is one of the top 5 basketball teams of all time and OKST plays their butts off every year. Kansas State has had the grandest rise as the Cinderella of college football. They don't deserve this.

I'll put a link to an article where one of Epstein's victims was forced by THE JUDGE to destroy evidence against Epstein. It appears that the judges now work for the criminals. These situations are very confusing to me, but they seem to be the norm. If Bowlsby doensn't have a shot at winning, it seems wrong to me. Our court system is a form of weaponized evil that serves deep-pocketed interests.

It is hard to know exactly,
All of these institutions only publish the financials that they must leaving a lot behind closed doors. WVU presently makes more money than any team in the ACC or Pac-12. A lot of that comes from the Big-12 media deal but WVU has a substantial 15 million dollar tier 3 rights package as well. That is on their merit so they are worth something even without a TV deal.

As for adding to the ACC, WVU would be in the top 5 annually and sometimes top 3 in attendance for football, not too shabby. They draw good TV numbers and travel well. The brand is the number 16 seller through 2019. WVU does not have to be the best school in the ACC to add to the whole, they just have to be better than the average. Is WVU better than BC, Syracuse or Pitt? If you think so, then they add.
