While waiting for Butch Davis to get it done at North Carolina, here's what I do if I'm the ACC: I call in reinforcements. I go after West Virginia, Louisville and Cincinnati. Along with delivering the lucrative Beckley, W.Va., market, the Mountaineers would transform the ACC. Fans of the Mountaineers are a perpetual blitz. They are loyal and they are devoted and they don't care who knows it. You imagine Bob Huggins and West Virginia fans at the ACC basketball tournament? Nobody would ever call it a cocktail party again.

ACC should expand, but get it right this time You're damn right they wouldn't. West Virginia has the most fervent fan base in the Big East, and it's just not even close. Any conference that finally gets "forced" into taking us will see a marked improvement in quality of fan support, etc., especially the ACC. These conferences just need to see the benefits of that lucrative Beckley market.
