Big Ten Expansion, ACC Contraction?
The dominoes have been falling steadily. Part of me just wishes the dominoes would go ahead and fall so we can be done with the madness. It looks like another domino will fall soon.

It depends what you want to believe, but where there is smoke, there is fire. The big realignment pundits are all over this, including Frank the Tank. He paints a fairly pessimistic picture, basically saying “I’ll believe it when I see it.”
I think any departing ACC school would be a fool to announce before the Maryland suit settles, but the ACC looks anything but stable at this point. Could the Big Ten ruin the ACC?
Update: from a man who is a caricature of himself, self-endowed as “the Dude,” a title only reserved for the real Lebowski. I digress. Here’s what he said:
The “rumor” (the source is credible) is that the B1G will hit 20 by 2017. The first 4 are UVA, GT, UNC and FSU.

As Allen alluded to in his comments, many of these rumors are likely just that. However, there have been enough of these rumors that something is bound to stick eventually. Assuming UNC were to leap to the Big 10, where do you see the other ACC schools going?
