Legitimate rivalries in football. The entire Northeast has been missing this part of the equation for so long. The original BE never really had enough longevity to get them established. The post-2003 BE patchwork conference, might have had a chance but just too many newbies and program-builders. Having Pitt as an ACC partner, along with a renewed conference alliance with Boston College will be huge. Add in the opportunity to renew rivalries with Miami and VT, and this is all a very good thing.
