BlueGoldNews Reporting Possible Early Exit Terms

Sources confirmed to BlueGoldNews.com that Pittsburgh -- which announced in late September that it will leave the Big East for the ACC -- was told it could avoid the Big East’s 27-month waiting period to exit by paying a sum of approximately $21 million. It is believed Syracuse, which is also making the Big East-to-ACC move, was given the same opportunity. Sources could not confirm the same opportunity had been extended to WVU by Friday morning, but they expected a similar offer would allow the school to move to the Big 12 as quickly as the 2012-13 athletic year.

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.
