What has ended that illusion for you. The B1G requires

Members to be AAU schools and have an enormous research grant sharing arrangement between the member schools. The FSU President basically told the fans that they would not leave the ACC for the B12 because of academics. The Pac12 isn’t inviting Boise or other low academic achools. Texas and OU aren’t hurting the academic rep of the SEC.

I agree with you that it probably doesn’t matter to UVA or it’s peer schools in the ACC but it seems to matter to the less respected schools. WVU’s main issue is probably its tiny footprint though.
