That's why I'm trying to figure out how a judge would rule.
You have most departure settlements around $10 million (or so) and Maryland pays $50 mil? Add to the fact it's substantially more than the ACC's annual operating budget.
But I have no idea what kind of strings are being pulled right now in North Carolina courts (I imagine many).
If you've ever seen To Kill a Mockingbird, where the court is a bunch of racist farmers, then you've seen what we're up against.

Creighton hasn't announced its departure from the Missouri Valley Conference – and probably won't this week during the league's basketball tournament – but informal conversations have already begun on a plan of action should they join the Catholic 7/Big East, as expected.
According to a person with direct knowledge of the league's thinking, Denver and Belmont would have significant support as candidates to replace Creighton, with Loyola (Ill.) also getting consideration and Oral Roberts looming as a longshot with less support.
If Creighton leaves the Missouri Valley Conference the league is prepared to possibly add Loyola (Ill.) or Oral Roberts with other possibilities being Denver and Belmont.
Denver makes a ton of sense.
It is the business walk of the biggest, baddest bear in the national park happening upon an abandoned picnic.
I think so, too.

Mason is probably a lock. Not sure if Davidson wants to leave the SoCon. CoC would be interesting but how would their coming move to the CAA affect things? I like Siena and would also look at Hofstra (Fordham aint cutting it when it comes to breaking into the NYC market). They may look at Drexel, but I doubt StJoes and LaSalle want to bolster the only unofficial member of the Big 5 any more than they aleady do. I could see them looking at Northeastern or BU to get another New England school (esp with UMass looking around to support their fb program,which would leave URI on an island), but both of them suck (and BU is moving to the Patriot League anyway).

Fox Sports 1 will television a primetime Thursday Night college football game and a CF tripleheader on Saturdays.
I am dubious about Davidson to the A-10 unless they add multiple southern teams. Would have to poach more CAA squads than just GMU, I would guess.
I imagine they'll take most of the Big 12/Pac 12 games that currently air on FX.
Go away, KA!
Maybe its finally time for The Citadel to get the respect they deserve...
Heh. Well, maybe not from the A-10. The Citadel has a scholarship football team, after all.
hmmm Denver or Belmont....Tough decision!

Look for the C7 to add Xavier, Butler and Creighton for next year and go to 12 for 2014-15. Still in flux, but trending that way.
Sounds like the C7 can't decide on who of Saint Louis, Dayton, and Richmond is going to draw the short straw.
Least surprising news ever...

"It's just so hard," Greivis said. "It's my heart, my love. Maryland made me who I am."
Does the ACC kick Maryland out of the ACC tournament next year? I know a lot of the mid-majors kicked teams out of the conference tournaments in their last season but I think the ACC would catch a lot more flak for leaving MD out.
In those cases it was already in the bylaws.
Good to know.
Not directly on topic, but I have a ton of friends that are Pitt fans that are going to MSG for the last real Big East tournament this year and I still have not gotten bored with saying "Don't worry, you'll get to make trips to Greensboro every March from here on out!"
Duke athletic director Kevin White said Monday the ACC will likely continue to keep the tournament in Greensboro, N.C. But White said the ACC should look to New York -- Madison Square Garden or Brooklyn -- at some point in a rotation of tournament sites. White said a decision should be reached in the next three to four months as to whether the ACC would pursue a New York turn in the rotation. The ACC is in Greensboro through 2015. Greensboro, Charlotte, Tampa, Washington D.C. and Atlanta all submitted bids for hosting the ACC tournament between 2016-21. But that doesn’t mean New York can’t be back in play. White said the ACC has to consider the new and old assets in the league. Regardless, he said the (eventual 15-team) ACC tournament will be the best basketball in the country.

They'll do it in New York one year, the fans of certain schools will complain to high heavens, and it'll never be done again.
I'm assuming all 15 schools will make the ACCT next year and they won't be like the A10, where only the top 12 make it.
