Agreed, Brand looks rather foolish with these type of statements. I am sure he thinks the BCS is about academics.

Maybe its his lame way of making excuses while the NCAA set back and did nothing during the raids last summer.

Maybe he actually thinks it was about academics. Is the NCAA safe under his leadership since he obviously does not have a clue?

Maybe someone should have informed him that James Madison University is not in the ACC and its OK to speak freely.

Actually, from the standpoint of Miami and VT it probably was primarily about academics. From the standpoint of the ACC, obviously it was not.

bullet, please! having you been following the saga of Va Tech for the last few months. Va Tech moving to the ACC for academics?

The school and state of Virginia were so concerned Va Tech football program would suffer without inclusion in a BCS conference.

Maybe the ACC will be good for Va Tech and Miami on academics and maybe not, lets not fool ourselves into thinking the ACC expansion was more than about revenue.

Answer: NO, I don't believe that Brand believes what he's saying.

Corollary: if he says something more truthful, he puts many NCAA institutions in a political hole. He has to say what he said.

There were a couple of related (linked) articles to the "Big 10, ACC take in most '02-'03 revenue" article that I posted yesterday and which BlackGold provided an alternative link to (thanks!), which provides more detailed revenue/pay information.
