Simply wrong! I'd rather see us go to an Ivy League sort of association

than add a WVU. I was pretty annoyed that Louisville was admitted to the ACC. They're not even in the AAU (Association of American Universities) which should be a prerequisite for membership, but, sadly, is not. WVU and Louisville are community colleges with big athletic departments. Furthermore, the ACC doesn't need to expand. It certainly doesn't need to emulate the SEC. I don't know if the reports are true, but I have seen it said that the Big Ten is NOT considering expansion. If FSU or Clemson feel the need to leave, let they pay and their exit fees and be gone. Hopefully, Va Tech will do so. Go 'Hoos!!!

Edit to add: The University of Maryland is a member of the AAU. It is a significantly better school than WVU. Suggesting that WVU is comparable to Louisville is hardly and endorsement. Furthermore, I can understand why WVU wants to join the ACC, however I can't see anything they bring to the table which would make the ACC want them.
