approach to the ACC until the end of the process.
Has this list of teams been leaked yet? It needs to become public if any of the schools on it end up as plaintiffs down the line.idk, it's been reported that as many as 10 teams approached the ACC for membership. It could be that initially at least neither knew of the other's inquiry.
I think the initial ACC inquiry was handled independently by both institutions. I really doubt there was collusion between Pitt and SU to leave together to the ACC.
I don't think we're talking about collusion here, but it strains believeability that the 2 schools did not at least know who was talking to whom, at least at some point in the process. It may not have started out that way, but with the way things leak these days, I'm sure there were those who couldn't keep their mouths shut. :noidea:
The "end" point (actual offer) apparently happened very fast. And was over very fast. Everything prior was presumably informal discussion; its not like 2003 when Miami, BC and SU were involved in ongoing discussions as a package.
