Wake and Duke are private schools.
The NC legislature cannot dictate terms to them
and they are not at the mercy of state funding.
Also, the Governor now is Democrat and would certainly veto.
It is really nonsense. Here's more on the political ploy:https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/ear ... 07dab306f1
While on the ACC topic, here is another opinion SB Nation Blog on an unrelated matter
(expansion speculation):http://www.bloggersodear.com/2017/4/11/ ... ng-the-acc
"If West Virginia were in the AAC and actively looking for a new conference, this would be a whole lot easier of a transaction. The problem is it isn’t, and pretty much every Power 5 league from ocean to ocean will be looking to add WVU if the Big XII eventually falls apart."
Uh, NO! The reasons are so obvious.
The ECU, Memphis, UNCC, UCF/USF, etc. stuff is so unrealistic.
Agree that WVU, UConn, and Cincy would be the prime candidates to make for #16 if it happened
within the next several years. But what if Notre Dame still refuses when the time comes? Their
deal goes into 2034 or so. Having just 15 fb would be awkward. Three 5 team pods were
unacceptable to the NCAA a couple of years back when they required divisions.
