As other conferences cannibalize the ACC who will leave next for greener pastures?

My man, cry_havoc, gotta go with the only other team to vote against the exit fee: FSU. (BTW, you did UNC twice). I'm not 100% sure they leave, but FSU said they'd be waiting to see what happens with the exit fee for MD.

The issue is Florida might veto them. Florida is supposedly opposed to FSU joining the SEC.

I am personally going with VT. They arent good this year, but they can be a solid team. FSU and VT will probably be the first to go.

BTW, yes I did put UNC twice. I doubt anyone wants UNC, but if you feel they are leaving just choose normally.

Va Tech and NC State to the SEC
FSU and Clemson to the Big XII
the rest to the Big East and the ACC folds

You forgot to include Pittsburgh and Syracuse as options. The conference is also negotiating with Connecticut and Louisville. Talk about a basketball super-conference.

I've always thought FSU and Clemson should be SEC schools.

I only included current ACC schools that are in the conference right now.

If Maryland pays the $50 million exit fee, than I think the league will remain stable for the time being. But FSU, Clemson, GTech will all entertain offers.

Dude you just can't quit crying about the ACC...you might wanna cry about your own team right now - WVU is pretty pathetic.

Do you actually think that Maryland - probably the least important school to the ACC - spells doom for the conference? You really shouldn't believe all of the blog and/or website drama caused by people like you...it's like a bunch of old ladies sitting around gossiping.
Maryland is least important to whom? Certainly not B1G.

The problem is Swofford. Bad TV deals and no ACC network. Plus no medical science/physical science research consortium.
