Luke DeCock wrote a good article today about the hot topic of ACC scheduling/expansion.
The following quote really resonated with me as a point that I’ve been trying to make for a while:
The ACC’s dominance and success was built on rivalries like N.C. State and North Carolina, not the television markets delivered by ex-Big East schools or the money delivered by ESPN. Dilute those rivalries, and you risk destroying the product for which ESPN has paid so dearly.
Long-term decisions being made by conferences based on much shorter-term cycles is going to backfire in some faces. I certainly hope that it isn’t the ACC’s.
