Texas has Board meeting Monday after OK. With OK likely going to PAC, recent articles, rumors suggest UT may join ACC as part-time member in football and full time member in all others sports and retain rights to third tier games on LHN.

Does the ACC invite of SU and Pitt stand alone or is it part of a possible UT move to ACC, with ND also joining ACC on terms similar to UT?

The Atlantic Coast Family Looks to Add Pitt and Syracuse (and What it Means for Texas, Notre Dame and the Big Ten)

ACC as UT option

With Pitt and SU in the ACC, and should UT join as a partial member, might ND be far behind?

Regardless, this is an incredibly positive development for SU.

Not so long ago the discussion revolved around the concept that SU was going to get left behind, that upstate NY is a dying area, that SU as a small private school is doomed, and on and on.

SU by joining the ACC is joining some of the best universities in the country. It is joining a true, north/south ACC, akin to the PAC, with SU, Pitt, BC as northeast members, with Maryland and Miami, along with the VA and NC and southern members; not as an isolated northern island.

I could live with that. :)

And think how the bowl tie-in landscape would change.
