I'd also like to see a true Northeast Conference form in the footprint of the ACC.
I would also like to see a true athletic conference format in the ACC's footprint. But in order for the ACC to expand it, they need to add at least UConn, Cincinnati and West Virginia. As of today, there are like 4 or 5 members from the Northeastern U.S. region (Penn State, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Boston College, Rutgers), making it the smallest amount of FBS schools for a region; despite that the ACC and then-old Big East (now The American or AAC) are technically representing the East Regional, and having the majority of members that are in the South Atlantic/Southeast U.S. regions.
Only the Sun Belt and C-USA are the only mid-major conferences within the Southeast U.S., followed by the major conference in the SEC.
Oh, on a side note. Has anyone checked out on Tennessee State? They have a FBS quality-like facility-type stadium, like LP Field. It would bring TV markets within the Greater Nashville area.
