If Miami has a league with Syracuse and BC and MD and Maryland and Virginia,how does that cut down transportation SIGNIFICANTLY?Also UNC and Duke are still against the proposal.That leaves Wake.Just what Wake wants to lose to Miami.You think that having 5 members being AAU schools out of 12 is a big difference from the current BE?HARDLY.What about the special Miami deals for bowl payouts and the independent baseball of Miami will the ACC give them those?HARDLY

Not only are you regularly rude, which is bothersome, but now you resort to not letting the facts get in the way of your opinions...
Travel costs...The BigEast is a predominantly Northeastern conference. The ACC is a southeastern conference. Last map I looked at Miami was SOUTH. The travel costs, although I don't personally think a big issue are indisputable! Miami significantly cuts travel in the ACC. Even if they drag Syracuse and one other with them.
Independant baseball...A paper Tiger argument. Miami baseball doesn't want to travel to the Northeast. They have played ZERO games in the Northeast over the past four years. They don't like the travel. They don't like the weather. They like the homefield advantage of Florida. Let me give you a list of some of their road opponents over the past four years...These include Georgia Tech, Virginia, Florida State (every year), North Carolina, and North Carolina State (as well as a couple of SEC schools). I am not a Miami fan, but logic dictates that they have no issues with going to these schools since they currently play them, and they play some of them on the road. Miami baseball is therefore a likely independant in baseball if they stay BigEast, but it appears that a move to ACC baseball doesn't significantly disrupt what they are already doing! Just the facts. 8-)
