NY Times: Syracuse and Pitt in Talks With ACC

9

I'd be OK with it. Can we add UConn and West Virginia, too?: "The person with knowledge of the talks declined to speculate on a timetable or the seriousness of the discussions. But in this delicate time for conferences and their futures, the discussions between the 12-team A.C.C. and two Big East members are significant." UPDATE: "Syracuse and Pittsburgh have begun the formal process of leaving the Big East by applying to join the Atlantic Coast Conference, an A.C.C. official with direct knowledge of the applications said Saturday."

Media Pick Hokies to Win ACC

+

Virginia Tech was picked to win its fourth ACC title by 69 (heh, heh, 69) of the 87 media members who voted at this year's ACC Football Kickoff. Voters picked VT in the Coastal and FSU in the Atlantic. Georgia Tech running back Jonathan Dwyer was selected as the ACC's preseason player of the year. None of these results are very surprising.

It's ACC Week at Dr. Saturday

Hinton kicked off ACC week Monday by tackling the notion it's a second-tier conference and calling the Hokies boring. With italics and everything. At some point in his post, Hinton will likely piss off fans of every ACC school except Duke and NC State, who aren't mentioned.
