the BE might be fighting back -
IMO i give this move of "3" to the ACC a 50/50 chance
of happening. there are now reports that NC STATE
may be waivering and vote no.
check out following. click links under subject.
UM head coach larry coker does not seem to be in
favor of going to the ACC
if the link does not go through put a space between
col and the nrs. also on the boston daily globe link if
it does not go through try and put a space between
the words after sports.
if the 7 votes do not go through and UM remains in the
BE, as i 've said before, i then think that MIAMI has a lot
to say on the future of the BE conf. ie; all sports conf.
(split with BB schools), conf. expansion, etc. i would bet
that ND and the BE are talking now. if the "3" go to the
ACC, then i think that ND can wind up as odd man out,
and they know it. i'm sure that they can cut a loose deal
with the BE, but yet still be in the conf. check out the
ND board. there seems to be a lot of concern there, and
on the other hand, if swafford does not get the 7 vote
needs, then he is in a weaker position when making
his next FB tv deal. also my guess is that FSU, GT and
CLEMSON would be mighty ticked. it would put the BE
in the potential position of becoming the FB kingpin
on the east coast if they land ND. as to whether they
expand beyond that in the foreseeable future is
anyones guess. remember UM's AD paul dee said that
they want to explore what could be done with the BE.
i don't recall the exact wording, but it says a lot.
