I can't say I'm thrilled with Louisville, corrupt to the core and brings

nothing in the way of academic partnership or geographic fan interest. Sticking us with them as a designated "rival" merely because they were replacing Maryland particularly sticks with Hoos.

He's also leaving us locked into a longterm TV deal that will likely see us $20-$40M annual per school behind the payouts of the B10 and SEC in just a few years time. Frankly it will take the mythical P5 split, or the sport of football ceasing to exist nationwide in a marketable capacity, for the ACC to ever level the playing field regarding revenue with those conferences. Swofford was years behind the Big Ten in media rights and the SEC on prioritizing the football product, and we're paying for it big time.
