I'd rather have UNC and UVA then watch Duke die
Imagine that the ACC might be filled with BoD in the end, but my god they might have alot of money for old Swofford to customize the F150 with.
they'd have to admit they are full of shit to take duke. not going to say it won't happen, but they would.
I can't see UNC going to the SEC given the caliber of many of the schools in that conference.
We currently bounce between Indy and Chicago, but rotating an East Coast venue seems possible/likely. But depending on what happens with the BE tourney, DC would be competing with NYC. MSG is hard to trump and now they have Barclays too. Throw in all the media attention you get in NYC and something tells me that's the more likely rotation.

Do you mean they wouldn't fit in with schools that look the other way for their football team and commit academic dishonesty?
I could see the conference tourney going back to a rotation that involves DC to further promote the conference out east. When the tournament first started it rotated every other year between Chicago and Indy.
Duke will become like Davidson after K retires.
So when unc or UVA jump ship, will espn and other sport pun dents bash their move as much as marylands. I never seen so much maryland negativity on such a no brainer decision. Especially giving the fact that maryland has bigger money issues then unc and UVA.
The B10 likes to rotate things and I agree that it would likely include east coast host sites for all its tournaments and championships. It's good PR (we have hundreds of thousands of alumni in the Northeast) and even those of us in the Midwest like the variety. No one wants to go to Indy every year. It gets boring.
Yes. I can only imagine all the criticism UNC will get if it ever leaves (and thereby effectively kills) the ACC. They will get blasted. I think that is why UMD is taking heat nationally to some extent. UMD's move is seen as the first brick being removed and many people are upset.

No, they'll blame Maryland for putting UNC and UVA in a position where they simply had no choice but to leave a now unstable ACC.

Disagree. If UNC had taken the same leap which Maryland did over the weekend, many of the same folks who are criticizing Maryland across the country would be praising UNC for their foresight and getting ahead of the curve. It's the old "their sh*t doesn't stink" theorem.
Call me a relic, call me what you will,
Say I'm old-fashioned, say I'm over the hill....
dont want or need Duke. they add nothing if UNC joins.
Not sure theyll have it in NYC either but your examples don't jive. NYC is in the big 10's footprint and there are an estimated 500k big ten alums between NYC and dc.
The national press will attack MD and praise the trinity of UVa, UNC and Duke for reacting in the best way possible to events that MD caused. The NC Press will fall into line since most are UNC Alums and the whole state GVMT and University system revolve around UNC.
Look to see McMillen, Elmore and Lefty join in once again. The Post will run another expose on MD.
MARYLAND. The area they’re now calling the DMV—D.C./Maryland/Northern Virginia—might be the country’s richest talent mine.
I see them rotating it. All things Indy is bullshit. They make a ton of money off us playing up this salt of the earth Hoosiers wet dream. They are good hosts but it's time to rotate many things around. NYC will be in the mix.

Texas & UNC are the 2 most attractive schools on that list but both are very unlikely IMO. ND would be awesome but seems pretty unlikely.
I am intrigued by KU. First, they offer hope of occassionally winning in football however, the real attraction would be a game every now and again at Phog Allen Fieldhouse. That would be awesome.
UVA would be nice due to their proximity but I don't think they help Maryland. I'd rather Pitt than most of the other schools on the list but could possibly live with GT or VT.
Why was Syracuse kicked out of AAU?
